Spurs stunned by Wolves as Fulham, Cardiff secure vital wins

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino

But in the second half we started to feel maybe the game was over, and when you feel the game is over you start to decide the wrong way, start to play too many long balls and then it was hard to recover the balls. We were a little comfortable because they played so deep. We started to play too many long balls and then it was hard to recover the ball and to play more with your heart than your head and we started to expend a lot of energy.

"I'm very disappointed, like the players, but there's nothing to say".

'We've got another game in a few days that we have to dust off and get ready for.

Despite having taken a 3-0 lead, Juan Foyth conceded two second-half penalties to give Spurs a tense and nervy finish in the West Midlands.

Pochettino dismissed suggestions this defeat will heighten the impression that Spurs lack the bottle to win the league.

Harry Kane opened the scoring for Mauricio Pochettino's charges in the 22nd minute but Wolves rallied to net three late goals through Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa in the last 18 minutes. If you see my comments always it's about being humble.

Spurs had looked like piling the pressure on leaders Liverpool in the Premier League title race after Harry Kane celebrated his new year MBE in style with a brilliant first-half strike.

"Today at 1-0, the moment we conceded the first goal the team was down, they started to feel the time, the fixture, everything, and it was hard to find the energy to win the game".

Goalscoring opportunities were a rarity early in the second half but the match started to threaten an unlikely twist 20 minutes in, when Cavaleiro was sent clean through on goal only to be chased down and dispossessed by the backtracking Davinson Sanchez. "That can happen to us, it can happen to Wolves, to Liverpool, it can happen to Manchester City". The Portugal worldwide provided the assist for Boly's equaliser and gave Wolves a much-needed calm head in the middle of the park, with the visitors having been exposed on the counter-attack on a number of occasions prior to his arrival.

- Spurs suffered a Premier League home defeat after opening the scoring for the first time since May 2016 (2-1 v Southampton). We miss that fresh energy that we needed to find the second goal.
