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.
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.
