Juan Foyth 4/10 as Tottenham escape Wolves with 3-2 victory

Juan Foyth 4/10 as Tottenham escape Wolves with 3-2 victory

Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane fired the visitors into a 3-0 lead at Molineux only for Wolves to nearly snatch a point.

"A lot of hard things that happen but I think we're strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive and at the end to achieve what the club and fans deserve".

The Dutch club are scheduled to train at the national stadium at 6.30pm on Monday after landing in London at lunchtime - but they will need to find an alternative venue if conditions to do permit.

Juan Foyth took Jimenez down inside the penalty area, and Ruben Neves stepped up to convert the ensuing spot kick.

"We don't know but we are a little bit anxious", said Pochettino.

"You need to feel you are going to play of course but it is about wanting to play for Tottenham". The last time the West Midlanders recorded a Premier League victory over Spurs was February 10, 2010, when a David Jones goal secured a 1-0 success at Molineux. "Maybe his ligament is damaged but after the scan today we will know better".

Foyth gave away the first of two penalties on 68 minutes with a mistimed challenge on Jimenez, although the more experienced Trippier must share some of the responsibility for losing the ball attempting a nutmeg on his own byline.




Mauricio Pochettino's side faced a number of shots on their goal after the interval but somehow found themselves 3-0 up as Harry Kane struck in the 61st minute.

Pochettino was also concerned by an injury picked up by Mousa Dembele in the first few minutes, and the Belgian would have to be assessed ahead of the crunch Champions League clash against PSV on Tuesday. "We'll play the way we normally play - front foot, press, trying to attack. It's about communications, feelings and is more up to the players".

"I want to hear them say: 'I want to play for Tottenham, to make history, to touch glory with this badge'".

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.

Real Madrid will play their first league match under interim boss Santiago Solari this weekend when they host Real Valladolid.

"We have to stay up there as long as we can", said Kane, who scored Tottenham's third goal at Molineux. In the end all we want to achieve one day is to win trophies.

In this week's Game Dissected we look at the tactics, game management and decision making that has cost Tottenham so far.
