Wolves Glide Past Frail Spurs To Move Three-Points Within Fourth Place West Ham. Wolverhampton Wanderers defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 to move above them in the table and hand Antonio Conte’s side their third consecutive Premier League defeat.
Spurs granted the visitors two goals in the first 20 minutes, thanks to a number of individual errors and Hugo Lloris’s goalkeeping in north London.
Spurs gave away control of the ball, allowing Leander Dendoncker to double Wolves’ lead after Raul Jimenez took advantage of a weak Lloris punch.
Bruno Lage’s team deserved to win, and they controlled the game well after taking the lead, while also putting Lloris under pressure on several occasions.

Conte hasn’t lost three league games in a row since taking over as manager of Atalanta in November 2009.
Wolves have climbed to seventh place, three points behind fourth-placed West Ham United in the race for the final Champions League spot, with a game in hand.
Despite their strong form, the Wolves have struggled for goals this season, with only Burnley and Norwich scoring fewer league goals.
They have one of the best defensive records in the league, but their lack of viciousness has cost them points, as it did in Thursday’s 1-0 loss to 10-man Arsenal, so Lage’s side will have appreciated the hosts’ benevolence.
