Vertonghen gifts Spurs last-minute winner over Wolves

Jan Vertonghen’s injury-time winner stunned Wolves to continue Tottenham’s revival under Jose Mourinho.

The defender’s header completed a smash and grab 2-1 win for Spurs to end the hosts’ unbeaten run.

Eric Dier hit the post for Spurs in the first half but Mourinho’s men were forced to cling on before Vertonghen’s late goal.

They climbed to fifth in the Premier League, despite being second best for long spells, and have won five of Mourinho’s opening seven games.

Wolves drop to eighth and their unbeaten run, their longest in the top flight since 1962, ends after 11 games – although they have still lost just twice in their last 19 outings in all competitions.
