Stoppage-time goals from Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina saw Wolves produce a stunning late comeback to beat a depleted Tottenham 2-1 at Molinuex.
The damage from Spurs’ stunning 4-1 defeat at home to Chelsea on Monday was laid bare at Molineux, with Ange Postecoglou forced into four changes thanks to the suspensions of Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie and the long-term injuries to James Maddison and Micky van de Ven.
It looked as though the absences of those key players wouldn’t affect Spurs, who raced ahead inside three minutes thanks to Brennan Johnson’s first goal for the club.
But that was as good as it got for Spurs, who were subdued throughout and saw Wolves miss several chances before Pablo Sarabia volleyed a leveller past Guglielmo Vicario in the 91st minute.
The Spaniard then set up Lemina for the winner in the 97th minute, seeing Spurs slip to their second straight defeat and miss the chance to replace Manchester City are the top of the Premier League.
