Wolves have suffered just their third home defeat in the top-flight in 2019 (W9 D6) and their first since a 2-5 defeat to Chelsea back in September. Indeed, each of those three losses have come against London opposition (also Crystal Palace in January, Spurs today).

Spurs have won two of their three Premier League away games under José Mourinho (L1), as many as they did in Mauricio Pochettino’s final 14 away from home in the competition.

Since a 1-3 defeat as Chelsea boss in October 2015, Spurs manager José Mourinho hasn’t lost any of his last 54 Premier League games when his side has scored the opening goal (W48 D6 – Chelsea (1), Man Utd (49), Spurs (4).

Adama Traore’s equaliser for Wolves was his fourth goal of the season in 26 appearances; twice as many goals as he netted in his previous 82 matches as a Premier League player across all competitions (2).

No two players have combined for more Premier League goals this season than Wolves duo Adama Traoré and Raúl Jiménez (5 – level with Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell).

Following a run of scoring in three straight Premier League games, Wolves striker Raúl Jiménez has now drawn a blank in each of his last four matches (13 shots). Indeed, the Mexican had five shots during today’s game – his most without scoring in the competition since he had six versus Newcastle back in February.

Lucas Moura has now scored three goals in just five Premier League appearances under José Mourinho after netting only once in 10 games under Mauricio Pochettino earlier this season.

Five of Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen’s six Premier League goals have come away from home. Indeed, he has scored his club’s first 90th minute winner in the competition since Harry Winks netted at Craven Cottage back in January.
