Tottenham put on a clinical display to beat Wolves 2-0 at home to keep their European dreams alive. Harry Kane provided the breakthrough right before half-time after being fed by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The North Londoners continued their dominance in the second half, with Hojbjerg doubling the lead after pouncing on Rui Patricio’s parried shot. Ryan Mason’s men have recovered from their disappointing loss to Leeds United with an emphatic win, which has taken them to sixth in the Premier League table.
Ruthless Harry Kane breaks his drought under Ryan Mason
There has been a lot of criticism going on around Harry Kane for not scoring under the new caretaker manager. Today the English striker proved his naysayers wrong by putting on a terrific display as he had done on several occasions this season. Kane hit the woodwork on a couple of occasions, and the way he took on the defenders for the first goal takes the cake.
Hojberg had a game to remember
Hojbjerg was the better of all the midfielders as he put on one of his best displays in the Spurs shirt. The Danish midfielder provided an inch-perfect through ball, which helped Kane to find the nets. The 25-year-old also arrived at the right time to score the winning goal on the rebound. With a goal and an assist for the first time this season, Hojbjerg has further solidified his position in the current Spurs’ squad.
Wolves were wasteful with their chances
There were times Wolves could have caused much trouble after catching Spurs off guard on the counters, but they failed to make the most of it. Players like Adama Traore and Morgan Gibbs-White had the pace to take on Spurs’ defence but lack of finishing in the final third, especially from young talent Fabio Silva, proved costly for Wolves.
Conor Coady and the post saved Wolves’s blushes
Conor Coady made two back-to-back goal-line saves during a single Tottenham attack. Similarly, two back-to-back attempts from Harry Kane and Dele Alli hit the post with a difference of few seconds between them.
