Wolves score twice in stoppage time to beat Spurs

Two goals in stoppage time sealed a dramatic victory for Wolves over Tottenham in the Premier League.

Mario Lemina scored in the seventh minute of additional time, 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 acrobatic finish, volleying home after flicking the ball to himself in the air.

Spurs’ eight-game unbeaten start to the season was cut short by their chaotic 4-1 defeat by Chelsea on Monday, but they issued an immediate response on Saturday as Brennan Johnson tapped home after latching on to a Pedro Porro pass.

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. Lemina came close when he had a cross-goal effort turned behind by Guglielmo Vicario.

Lemina later failed to find Matt Doherty after an unselfish cut-back inside the six-yard box, Sasa Kalajdzic blasted an unmarked header over the crossbar, and Spurs were leading as the game neared its conclusion.

But Tottenham failed to come away unscathed after Wolves’ late heroics and succumbed to back-to-back defeats.
