WOLVES VS SPURS A very good afternoon to you all and welcome to our live-text coverage of Wolves vs Spurs. A couple of underlying narratives today as Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo quickly returns to the club he left in the summer. Meanwhile, Harry Kane is back in the squad in the midst of an ongoing, will he won´t he, transfer saga with Manchester City. What will the fans make of him I wonder? A goal would surely sort things out. And then besides all the relationship drama there´s also the small matter of Premier League points. Find out who gets them right here as we bring you all the build-up, hype and highlights ahead of kick-off at 2pm. Also...WELCOME FANS.
Premier League / Matchday 2
Molineux / 22.08.2021
Utterly dominant, 25+ shots, no points. That´s the story of Wolves´ night as a Dele Alli penalty settles things and Spurs take an undeserved three points back to London.
Harry Kane, who returned to the pitch, might like the look of that.
Harry Kane is shown a yellow for time wasting as a dawdles over a throw in. No complaints.
Traore outmuscles Reguilon before darting into the Spurs box but he cannot get his shot away.
From the corner, Silva´s header is saved.
Last minute of the 90.
Wolves have had 24 shots compared to Spurs´ 9.
Sa makes another save as Dier heads goalwards from the corner!
Up the other end, Hojbjerg is into the book for a very professional foul as Wolves countered.
Alli draws the foul now as the game becomes scrappier.
Will we see another goal? Wolves have deserved at least, AT LEAST, a draw this afternoon but they´ve nothing to show for it so far.
Harry Kane is in on goal to win it but his effort is saved by Sa! Could have been the fairytale!
Spurs are turning this into a midfield battle now as they crowd Wolves out and stop the break. Kane is yet to get involved but the two sets of fans are exchanging songs that are harldy safe for work.
CLOSE CLOSE CLOSE!
Wolves are still knocking on the door. So many balls in the box. Trincao has his hands perpetually behind his head. So many chances.
Leander Dendoncker is on for Moutinho.
Wolves go for broke.
HERE COMES KANE
The travelling fans sing his name! He´s one of our own! Son makes way.
Jimenez is rough housed by Reguilon in the box but it´s no penalty. Adama gets yet another ball into the box after making his way past Tanganga.
Lucas Moura makes way for Lo Celso. A tactical change that should give Spurs a bit more in midfield.
And Kane is warming up...
Giovani Lo Celso
Spurs have three chances on three seconds as Son and Bergwijn each have an effort saved by Lloris before the former has an effort blocked.
The Frenchman is desperate for a clean sheet on his 300th appearance.
WHAT A SAVE!
Wolves have to equalise! Adam is played through on goal with not a defender in sight but his effort is blocked by the leg of Lloris.
Wonderful save but he has to score.
60 minutes have passed and Kane sits still. The camera turns to Daniel Levy. Great drama.
Trincao gets an effort away inside the box but Lloris dives down for the save!
Jimenez is into the book for bringing down Reguilon.
Son is through on goal and in behind the Wolves defence. He´s clear and shoots but Kilman slides out of nowhere to make the block.
Son screams handball but I think it hit him in the face. Great defending.
Dier and Sanchez are playing like peak Puyol and Pique right now because the way they are organising this backline is frustrating Wolves perfectly.
The hosts are forced to go for goal from distance and Semedo this time lashes over the bar.
