Romain Saiss’ late goal earned a well-deserved 1-1 draw for Wolves after Tanguy Ndombele had put Tottenham ahead inside a minute.
It was almost a classic Jose Mourinho performance once again from Tottenham, as Ndombele send a low, hard strike past Rui Patricio after 57 seconds. They then sat back and soaked up plenty of Wolves pressure, having only one shot in the second half and their last shot on target in the 21st minute.
Spurs were let down by some lax set-piece defending as Saiss flicked home from a corner in the 86th minute to seal a point for the hosts. Ruben Neves and Fabio Silva both had late chances to win it for Wolves, but were thwarted by Hugo Lloris.
Tottenham missed the chance to go back into the top four and have instead ousted Man City in fifth, but are now four Premier League games without a victory. Wolves move up one place into 11th.
Tottenham started with a bang and took the lead 57 seconds after kick-off. Heung-Min Son won and then delivered a corner, which Conor Coady initially headed away. However, it fell to Ben Davies, who tapped the ball to the waiting Ndombele at the top of the area, who hit a low shot through the effort to beat Patricio.
Wolves’ first sight of goal came after a trademark Adama Traore run, cutting in from the right flank and breezing past three Tottenham players. He then squared the ball for Daniel Podence, but his tame effort resulted in an easy save for Lloris. Shortly after, Ndombele sent a cross into the area from the right, but Sergio Reguilon could only direct a header past the post.
