Gomes double as Wolves beat Spurs again

Joao Gomes' double saw Wolves beat Tottenham in a third successive Premier League match for the first time, winning 2-1 as Spurs slipped out of the top four.

It was the perfect response from Wolves after a bruising 2-0 home defeat to Brentford last Satu, which saw Matheus Cunha pick up a serious hamstring injury.

But the defeat was a serious setback for Tottenham ambitions of qualifying for the Champions League and, from their perspective, both goals were preventable. Gomes' first in the 42nd minute came from an unmarked header after Pablo Sarabia's corner.

The second was the result of Pedro Neto's fine counter-attack - a threat Tottenham which struggled to contain all game - that was finished well by Gomes (63).

They were sandwiched either side of a smartly taken goal from Dejan Kulusevski 34 seconds into the second half, but it was not enough to inspire a Spurs comeback.

When asked if there was anything psychological, Ange Postecoglou might try to boost performances, he replied: "There are no tricks, it's hard work. I'm not a magician, I'm a football manager. The boys have done that all year, we've got here on hard work so that's what we'll keep doing."
