Wolverhampton Wanderers pulled off a surprising victory over Tottenham Hotspur, scoring two goals in stoppage time to win the match 2-1. The late substitution of Pablo Sarabia proved to be a game-changer as he scored the equalizer in the 91st minute and provided the assist for the winning goal in the 97th minute. This result kept Spurs in second place behind Manchester City, while Wolves climbed to 12th in the Premier League standings. Mario Lemina, who scored the winning goal, expressed his joy and credited their tactics for the victory. Spurs, dealing with injuries and suspensions, had to field a makeshift back four, with Pedro Porro being the only regular starter. Despite a lack of clear-cut chances, the first half saw end-to-end action, and Wolves had a great opportunity with Lemina’s shot being saved by Spurs’ goalkeeper. Wolves played positively in the second half but lacked the quality in the final third. However, Sarabia’s goal in the 91st minute brought them level, and in the 97th minute, Lemina capitalized on a quick free kick to secure all three points for Wolves. Spurs’ manager, Ange Postecoglou, acknowledged the tough game and admitted that his team ran out of energy towards the end. He also praised Wolves’ goals and found them difficult to accept.
