Spurs attempted to break the tie. But Son Heung-shot min’s struck the outside of the near post after Kulusevski’s risky work.
When Harry Kane scored for Spurs for the 185th time in the top flight, manager Antonio Conte appeared relieved. Kane had broken Sergio Aguero’s one-club record with one of the easiest goals the precision shooter has ever scored.
Raul Jimenez, who scored in the Wolves’ 2-0 victory over Tottenham last season, was brought on by Lage. But the visually appealing visitors were unable to end the wait for a Premier League goal. Which has now lasted more than four hours of play.
Conte will have believed that this was the kind of challenge that Tottenham needed to take three points from to prove their title — or even top-four — credentials. Tottenham looked threatening the Wolves during the first half and had a rocket upon re-emerging from Conte.
The playmaker was crucial to their greatest work outside of the penalty area. And the wingback frequently supplied appealing crosses from odd locations while under pressure.
Son was quieter than normal, and a horde of players thwarted Kane frequently. But there was a sense that if Wolves couldn’t find their own lethal instinct. Their primary goal threat would be the difference.
At the conclusion of a week in which the team celebrated its 10th season in the Premier League. Kane admitted that “it was a difficult game” in a post-match interview with BT Sport.
“Wolves deserve credit; they played well. We came out really intensely in the second half, held the ball better, applied better pressure, and scored the goal we deserved. After that, neither of us produced much, but neither did they.
When asked if Spurs have a newfound resilience to respond positively when things don’t go their way. Kane didn’t seem fully certain.
In advance of Tottenham’s two away games in four days starting on Matchday 4, traveling to Nottingham Forest and West Ham, he commented, “Time will tell as the season goes on.” “We need to play better and make better starts to games.
“A good team is one that wins games despite players not giving their all. Playing in the Premier League has been an amazing experience for the past nine or ten years. And hopefully, I have many more to come.”
Bruno Lage, the manager of Wolves, sounded calm and assured as he discussed his team’s intention to add aggression to their expansive play before this match. But he added a careful note of caution about how long it might take his new additions to adjust.
Guedes, who cost £27.5 million and was acquired from Valencia, was making his debut. While Matheus Nunes, who cost £38 million and was acquired on Thursday from Sporting CP, was making his first appearance.
After an undoubtedly unfair loss at Leeds and a goalless draw against Fulham at home, where Wolves had 60% of the possession but only one shot on goal, the fans are desperate for their creative and attacking players to make an impact.
The strain is made worse by the fact that they haven’t won since April 2, making their intricate play and fluid football a frustrating and mitigating factor.
On the strength of how the Wolves played in the first half, you would not have guessed that they were lacking in goals and points. The away team produced much of their good work in Tottenham’s final third, containing the home crowd while creating multiple anxious moments for an occasionally unsure-looking backline and challenging goalie Lloris. This was reflective of their coach’s poise from the outset.
Nevertheless, the game still merited as many groans from the visiting supporters as cheers. Wolves failed to take advantage of having 10 of the 11 shots on goal before halftime, with Nunes and Pedro Neto among the offenders.
To the inevitable chagrin of Conte, their link-up play was frequently enjoyable to watch. And their sweeping passing regularly put Spurs on the back foot, leaving them occasionally chasing shadows as they gave up fouls in perilous places.
Before playing Liverpool and Manchester City in back-to-back games, the Wolves had friendlier matchups against Newcastle United, Bournemouth, and Southampton. If they are unable to find that long-awaited victory in any of those games. It would come as a surprise and be a big setback. Especially given that they have already eliminated their possibilities of doing so.
