EPL: Tottenham boost to European berth after Wolves win: photos. –Atojsports – News Block

Tottenham boosted their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League with a comfortable Premier League win over Wolves.

Spurs, who are five points from a place in the top four, move past West Ham to sixth on goal difference, with Everton, who play later on Sunday, three points further behind.

It was a deserved victory for the hosts who hit the woodwork three times after creating a series of excellent chances.

Harry Kane, who saw an early shot hit the left post, put Spurs on their way, calmly scoring the opener with an excellent pass from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg on the stroke of half time.

While Wolves posed a threat at half-time, they were forced to ride their luck at times, with Kane and Dele Alli hitting the right post within seconds of each other.

And Hojbjerg unsurprisingly doubled Spurs’ lead, reacting first after Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio saved an effort from Gareth Bale to slide the ball into the bottom right corner.

Romain Saiss, Adama Traore and Fabio Silva all had good opportunities to respond to the visitors, but not for the first time this season it was a frustrating day in front of goal for Wolves, who remain 12th in the table.
