Wolves moved up two spots to 13th place in the table with the victory, while Spurs remain fourth, four points behind Manchester United, who travel to Anfield to play Liverpool on Sunday. At the Molineux Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, spirited Wolverhampton Wanderers defeated wasteful Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in an entertaining matchup of two completely different halves.

In the 82nd minute, Raul Jiminez, brought in to replace the injured Diego Costa, sent a powerful shot at Fraser Forster that the Spurs goalkeeper could only parry into the path of AdamaTraore, who finished without making any mistakes. Adama Traore scored the goal. The winger was on song. Moreover, AdamaTraore was the most influential player in the match and looked most likely to achieve. Other Wolves players were also good on the day, with decent possession and stats but failed to score.

After their manager JulenLopetegui brought in AdamaTraore at halftime, the Wolves significantly improved in the second half after losing Diego Costa to an apparent knee injury in the first half and failing to produce a single shot before the break. When Nelson Semedo could not connect with Jimenez’s cross at the far post in the 51st minute, they came within inches of taking the lead. However, Forster stopped Raul Jiminez from scoring from close range after Traore’s precise cross.

After the break, the Tottenham Hotspur hit the woodwork twice quickly through Pedro Porro and Son, but they paid the price for being unable to adjust to the Wolves’ shift in formation at halftime. It was a good performance from the struggling Wolves as they fought to avoid relegation. However, Tottenham Hotspur still has a long way to go, as their race for the 4th spot is going off track.
