The Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday was a crucial one for both sides. Spurs were looking to keep their top four hopes alive, while Wolves were looking to cement their place in the top half of the table.
In the end, it was Wolves who came out on top, thanks to a stunning late strike from Adama Traore. The Spanish winger cut inside from the right flank and unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner to seal all three points for his side.
The game had been a tight affair up until that point, with both sides creating chances but failing to find the back of the net. Spurs had the better of the chances, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min both going close, but they were unable to find a way past Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
At the other end, Wolves had their own chances, with Traore and Raul Jimenez both going close. But it was Traore who eventually made the difference, with his late strike proving to be the difference between the two sides.
The result was a huge blow to Spurs’ top four hopes, as they now sit five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with just four games remaining. Wolves, meanwhile, move up to seventh in the table and are now just two points behind sixth-placed Sheffield United.
The result also means that Wolves have now won four of their last five Premier League games, and they will be looking to continue their good form in their remaining fixtures.
Overall, it was a hard-fought victory for Wolves, and one that could prove to be crucial in their bid to finish in the top half of the table. As for Spurs, they will now have to hope that their rivals slip up in the coming weeks if they are to have any chance of securing a top four finish.
