Wolves scored twice in stoppage time

Wolves scored twice in stoppage time as they came from behind to beat Tottenham in the Premier League.

Mario Lemina netted the winner in the seventh minute of additional time at Molineux, sliding the ball into the far side of the net after an expertly timed pass by Pablo Sarabia.

Sarabia had levelled six minutes earlier with a sublime finish, volleying home after flicking the ball to himself in the air.

The chaotic 4-1 loss to Chelsea on Monday ended Spurs’ 10-game unbeaten streak, but on Saturday, Brennan Johnson tapped home after seizing a Pedro Porro pass to give them an immediate response.

Tottenham’s impression was momentary, however, and Wolves quickly grew into the game with energetic pressing in the final third, albeit lacking any real cutting edge in front of goal.

The Wolves failed to convert numerous chances, with Hwang Hee-chan and Sasa Kalajdzic missing the target from close range, but remained persistent in their attacking intent.

Tottenham failed to come away unscathed after Wolves’ late heroics as they succumbed to back-to-back defeats, missing out on a chance to go to the top of the table.
