Wolverhampton Wanderers closed out 2018 in perfect fashion as we made the trip to Wembley Stadium to face high flying Tottenham Hotspur.
Few expected a result given the form of Mauricio Pochettino’s side (eleven goals in the last two games taking them into second place in the Premier League table) but plenty were expecting a performance and an entertaining game and that’s exactly what the travelling fans received.
The hosts took the lead through Harry Kane, but with slow improvement we grew into the match and as the pressure built, we made it pay handsomely in the second half of the game and Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa found the back of the net to give us a 3-1 victory on the day.

All three goals came inside of the final 20 minutes of the match as Spurs struggled to live with our improvement.
Speaking to the BBC following the fulltime whistle, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was obviously delighted with our efforts across the game.
“It is good for the dressing room but to play like this at Wembley – the home of football – is the big thing. We have achieved something very special in getting to the Premier League and it has been a very special year. The second half was really really good. We managed possession, had chances and goals. We had a lot of belief after the equaliser – I would have said a draw was a good result, but I cannot control the emotions of the boys if they see space in front of them.”
