With a ‘different’ Christmas Day behind us this year, Tottenham Hotspur made the long trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Molineux today as our unforgiving fixture schedule continued.
It was certainly a bright start from Spurs and Son Heung-Min could’ve opened the scoring 24 odd seconds in but we had to wait a little bit longer. Shortly afterwards Tanguy Ndombele rifled in from outside of the box to make it 1-0 with only a minute on the clock.
With hopes of a cricket score, it failed to happen – but that’s not to say it wasn’t a pretty entertaining first half but the chances were few and far between.
The second half exploded into life, as Wolves attacked, Fabio Silva threw himself to the ground after a non-challenge from Eric Dier, but the referee wasn’t buying that and it seemed VAR didn’t disagree – the only curious thing was why no yellow card for simulation?
It was in some ways a sign of what was to come. Wolves were now truly up for this and it started to show. We had a couple of efforts to double the advantage, but if the first half was ours, the second was theirs and with four minutes on the clock they got the leveller.
That was how it ended and the game will do nothing to calm the debate on whether we should play to our strengths or try and defend a 1-0 advantage.
