Rivaldo Says Pochettino Should Move To Real Madrid, Take Kane With Him

Wolves vs Tottenham, Premier League: live score and goal updates

At 3-0, you do not have to press.

INJURY-HIT Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Black Country looking for a return to Premier League winning ways against a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have wobbled of late following a solid start to the campaign. This is Tottenham's fourth game in the space of eight insane days, and while Mauricio Pochettino has rotated as much as possible, you can be sure a rest will be welcome.

Wolves were awarded a penalty in the 68th minute when Jimenez was brought down in the box.

First the young Tottenham defender fouled Raul Jimenez, with Ruben Neves converting from the spot in the 68th minute.

It is a problematic position for Pochettino ahead of Tuesday's Champions League duel with PSV Eindhoven and next Saturday's London derby at Crystal Palace, and it will be hard for him to rotate now. He did the best he could in the circumstances.

Kieran Trippier delivered an even better assist less than three minutes later as his curling cross dropped perfectly for Lucas to head Spurs into a two-goal lead.

The Wembley pitch was in a poor condition when Spurs hosted Manchester City last Monday, following three successive weekends of National Football League action. But we'll be a touch more daring and add a Harry Kane goal into the mix as well.

MF Moussa Sissoko, 6 - A solid presence in the first half but went missing when Wolves fought back in the final 20 minutes.

Wolves pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages, but Spurs managed to see out the closing stages claim three points and move back into the top four. With Jan Vertonghen out and Lloris shaky, they have struggled against teams with more attacking verve, and have shipped 10 goals in six Wembley outings (all competitions).

11 - Erik Lamela has had a hand in 11 goals in his last 12 appearances in all competitions for Spurs (8 goals, 3 assists).

"It's not the first time this has happened in the Champions League and in the league, that the opponent created chances in the last minutes of the game".

Spurs have kept three clean sheets in their last 13 games - against Huddersfield, Cardiff and West Ham.

He was replaced from the substitutes' bench by Son Heung-Min in a change that forced a reshuffle, with Moussa Sissoko moving to his less favoured holding midfield role. He made an impact, setting up Lamela's opening goal before being withdrawn on the hour-mark, possibly because Pochettino wanted to protect him from fatigue.

DF Davinson Sanchez, N/R - Came on at 3-2 to reinforce a vulnerable rearguard and helped his side to crawl over the line.
