Tottenham succumbed to a shocking defeat to Wolves

Tottenham 1-3 Wolves

Tottenham were well beaten at Wembley by Wolves as their title hopes suffered a shocking setback as Wolves scored three late goals coming from behind and win.

Tottenham would have closed the gap between them and Liverpool by three points but defeat means the Reds can end the day nine points clear.

Harry Kane scored a spectacular first-half opener for Spurs but Willy Boly levelled with a powerful header in the 72nd minute to punish the hosts for a sloppy second-half performance.

Raul Jimenez then beat Hugo Lloris with a weak effort from the edge of the area to put Wolves in front before Helder Costa added a third on the counter-attack three minutes from time.

The hosts did not have a single shot in the second half as their five-game winning run in the league came to an end.

They remain second in the table but Manchester City can go back above them when they visit Southampton on Sunday.
