Tottenham Hotspur’s high-flying form hit rock bottom after a 3-1 defeat against minnows Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League as the North London side’s winning streak was put to an end at five.
Harry Kane put the hosts up 1-0 with a beautiful strike in the 22nd minute here on Saturday, but Spurs were unable to add to their advantage and the visitors erupted for three goals in the final 20 minutes, reports Efe.
The comeback began with French defender Willy Boly, who brought his team level in the 73rd minute with a header off a cross from Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho.
Wolverhampton pulled ahead in the 84th minute with a goal from Mexico’s Raul Jimenez, assisted by Portuguese forward Ivan Cavaleiro. Portuguese winger Helder Costa sealed the win with a goal in the 87th minute.
Spurs, sitting second with 45 points from 20 matches, are just a point ahead of defending champions Manchester City, who can overtake Tottenham with a victory on Sunday over Southampton.
Wolverhampton, back in the Premier League again after six seasons toiling in the second and third divisions, are seventh with 29 points.
Elsewhere, Brighton & Hove Albion topped Everton 1-0 on the strength of a second-half goal by Dutch forward Jürgen Locadia, while a late strike by Spanish midfielder Victor Camarasa gave Cardiff City a 1-0 away win over Leicester City.
