Wolves beat Spurs 2-1, Villa cruise into UCL spot

Published




Wolves secured a 2-1 win against Tottenham, with Joao Gomes stealing the show with a sensational brace in a remarkable third consecutive Premier League victory. 

The triumph marked a strong rebound for Wolves following a disappointing 2-0 loss to Brentford last Saturday, compounded by Matheus Cunha’s severe hamstring injury. 

Tottenham, on the other hand, suffered a significant setback in their Champions League aspirations, as both goals from Gomes were deemed preventable from their perspective. 

Gomes’ first goal, an unmarked header from Pablo Sarabia’s corner in the 42nd minute, set the tone. 

The second, a well-executed finish after a threatening counter-attack orchestrated by Pedro Neto, sealed the victory for Wolves in the 63rd minute. 

Dejan Kulusevski’s swift response for Tottenham 34 seconds into the second half failed to ignite a successful comeback. 

Spurs dropped out of the top four, while Wolves ascended into the Premier League’s top 10 ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Manchester City. In other news, Austrian manager Oliver Glasner, a potential successor to Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace, was spotted in attendance. 

The Eagles are set to face Tottenham in two weeks’ time.

Aston Villa’s top four charge continues with victory over Fulham

Aston Villa reclaimed their place in the Premier League top four with a hard-fought 2-1 triumph against Fulham away from home. 

Ollie Watkins showcased clinical prowess, scoring a crucial opener midway through the first half. Despite both teams having goals disallowed, Watkins doubled his tally with a composed finish assisted by Youri Tielemans. 

Fulham, however, managed to pull one back just after the hour mark, as the in-form Rodrigo Muniz found the net for his fourth goal in three outings. 

Although this ignited the crowd at a chilly Craven Cottage, Fulham failed to mount a successful comeback, succumbing to their fifth defeat in nine league games. 

Fulham remains in 12th place, while Unai Emery’s Aston Villa extended their lead over fifth-placed Spurs by two points and established an eight-point cushion over sixth-placed Man Utd.
