Tottenham beat again at home, booed off the pitch, while Ryan Sessegnon hung on in the first half as Wolves cruised to the Premier League top four


Tottenham’s week got even worse on Sunday when Wolves came to north London and took three points with ease.

After being beaten 3-2 by Southampton during the week, Antonio Conte’s side found themselves trailing 2-0 in 20 minutes at White Hart Lane, Leander Dendoncker scoring one which was due to comedic errors of the Spurs.

Raul Jimenez opened the scoring with Hugo Lloris looking rather unconvincing and the goalkeeper started the move that led to Wolves’ second with a poor pass.

Then Ryan Sessegnon was hung on 27 minutes and the team left the pitch to a chorus of boos, which also greeted their full-time exit.

It was the first time Spurs had found themselves two goals down at half-time in a Premier League home game since December 2019, against Chelsea.

The fact that they never came back to earn from that deficit did not bode well.

For wolves, however, it was the opposite.

It was the first time they had scored at least two goals in the first half of a Premier League away game under manager Bruno Lage.

The second half brought some positives for Tottenham – it could only get better – and a number of players had decent chances. Dejan Kulusevski went close, Harry Winks hit the post and Harry Kane had a half chance.

It is then Manchester City for Tottenham, with Antonio Conte and co. looking at four successive Premier League defeats.

Wolves, meanwhile, have a home game against Leicester as they chase a place in the Premier League’s top four. They have already finished the weekend above Tottenham and confidence will be high.
