Fans react as Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg score to hand Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 win against Wolves
Spurs are out of the race for the top 4 but 5th place is still up for grabs, with Spurs now leading West Ham United on goal difference. The game saw a strong line-up with the exception of Serge Aurier missing out at right-back.
The Ivorian was not in the matchday squad but it was not an issue for Ryan Mason’s side on the day. A pass from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg found Harry Kane just before the break and the Englishman kept his cool to fire Spurs in front.
The Danish midfielder then turned scorer from assister after he was on hand to turn in a shot spilt by Wolves goalkeeper, Rui Patricio, in the 62nd minute.
Spurs clinch important 3 points
And the Lilywhites held on to the scoreline until the final whistle to take home all 3 points, something which they could not do in the reverse fixture earlier this season in December 2020.
The stars of the show were arguably Kane, Hojbjerg, and Dele Alli. Kane could have opened the scoring in the first 5 minutes of the game when he struck the post but made amends in the 45th minute.
As for Hojbjerg, his goal and assist were vital in landing the win, while Dele Alli was a constant threat to Wolves’ backline, and linked up will with Kane in the second half.
But fans were quick to give credit to Reguilon for the second strike and also tweeted how Harry Kane staying at the club next season is vital for the club.
