Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Premier League Match Result February 2024

Wolves manager Gary O'Neil commended his team's performance as "near-perfect," attributing their success to Joao Gomes' brace that secured a victory over Tottenham, subsequently pushing Spurs out of the Premier League's top four.

The breakthrough came just before halftime when Gomes capitalized on being left unmarked, executing a powerful header from Pablo Sarabia's corner. Despite Tottenham swiftly equalizing early in the second half through Dejan Kulusevski, Wolves' resilience shone through.

Highlighted by key saves from goalkeeper Jose Sa and a crucial block from Nelson Semedo, Wolves capitalized on a swift counter-attack, with Pedro Neto setting up Gomes for the decisive goal. Despite Tottenham's late attempts to level the score, missed opportunities from Micky van de Ven and Ben Davies saw Wolves hold on for the victory.

Reflecting on the game, O'Neil expressed pride in his team's performance, emphasizing their ability to exploit tactical opportunities and create chances. However, he lamented their lack of clinical finishing while acknowledging their overall threat on the pitch.

The defeat marked the end of Tottenham's five-game home winning streak in the league and saw them displaced from the top four by Aston Villa. Wolves, meanwhile, completed a double over Spurs and briefly climbed to 10th in the table before dropping to 11th following Chelsea's draw with Manchester City.
