Harry Kane admits Wolves are now a rival for Tottenham

Harry Kane admits Wolves are now a rival for Tottenham in their quest to reach the Champions League. Kane was relieved as Spurs beat Wolves 2-1 to leapfrog Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and go fifth in the Premier League table. The Tottenham and England captain says they targeted the games against Wolves and Chelsea this Saturday to take maximum points to muscle their way towards the Champions League places before Christmas. “Absolutely. Even before Chelsea’s result on Saturday, we said it’s two important games,” said Kane. “Wolves were one point ahead of us. These two games were very important for…

Wolves’ long unbeaten run has given us confidence to build another – Jota

Diogo Jota insists the momentum from Wolves’ long unbeaten run has given the players the confidence to do it again. Tottenham ended Wolves’ 11-match league sequence without defeat in harsh circumstances on Sunday when Jan Vertonghen’s stoppage-time header gave the visitors a 2-1 win. But Wolves produced one of their best performances of the season and Jota reckons the players have the mentality and belief in each other to start another stretch without loss as they prepare to travel to Norwich on Saturday. “Being so long without losing gave us a lot of confidence,” said Jota. “We trust each other,…

Moutinho: Wolves are determined to better last season’s achievements

Joao Moutinho insists Wolves are determined to improve on last season to reward the club’s ‘amazing’ fans. The Molineux magician continues to leave supporters pinching themselves at the stunning levels of performance which made him many oberservers man of the match in Sunday’s harsh last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. Wolves finished last season in seventh spot to qualify for the Europa League – their highest placing for 39 years – and reached the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in 21 years. The weekend setback – their first in 12 league games after equalling their longest top flight unbeaten…

Traore’s Wolves transformation explained – by a former Aston Villa team-mate

Micah Richards believes Wolves winger Adama Traore’s transformation is down to having a manager who believes in him. Traore has been a revelation this season for Wolves, with his stunning strike in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat against Tottenham taking his tally to four goals and six assists in 26 games as opposed to one and three in 36 appearances in all competitions last term. That turnaround is down to countless hours of perseverance on the training ground from head coach Nuno Espirito Santo and his staff working with the 23-year-old winger. They have effectively slowed him down to become more effective,…

Adama Traore was Wolves’ nearly man according to ex-Tottenham man Jenas

Adama Traore was Wolves’ nearly man against Tottenham, according to former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas. Traore caught the eye as he constantly attacked the Spurs defence and scored a cracking equaliser with a fierce shot from the edge of the box, while also attracting three bookings for Tottenham players. One report even claimed a senior Tottenham player went to manager Jose Mourinho after the game and called for him to sign Traore. But Jenas spotted a flaw in Traore’s make-up that he claimed cost Wolves the game as Jan Vertonghen headed a stoppage-time winner to seal an unlikely 2-1 victory.…
