Spurs 2-0 Wolves: Kane & Hojbjerg score to boost The Lilywhites' European hopes

With a comfortable Premier League victory over Wolves, Tottenham increased their chances of qualifying for the Europa League.

Spurs, who are five points adrift of a top-four spot, leapfrog West Ham into sixth position on goal difference, with Everton three points behind.

The hosts deserved to win and hitting the woodwork three times after producing several excellent chances.

On the stroke of half-time, Harry Kane, who had an early effort deflected off the left post, set Spurs on their way, calmly slotting in the opener from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's superb pass.

Though Wolves were dangerous on the break, they were forced to rely on luck at times, with Kane and Dele Alli both hitting the right-hand post seconds apart.

After Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio parried a Gareth Bale effort, Hojbjerg inevitably doubled Spurs' lead, reacting first to slip the ball into the bottom right corner.

For the visitors, Romain Saiss, Adama Traore, and Fabio Silva all had good chances to respond, but it was another disappointing day in front of goal for Wolves, who remain 12th in the table.
