Jan Vertonghen celebrates Spurs’ winner against Wolves

Jan Vertonghen headed an injury-time winner as Tottenham snatched an unlikely 2-1 win at Wolves to move to within three points of the top four.

Adama Traore, who had ironically been Vertonghen’s chief tormentor at a sodden Molineux, looked to have earned the hosts a richly-merited point (67) when he cancelled out Lucas Moura’s eighth-minute opener with a blistering strike.

But Vertonghen delivered an unexpected twist in a compelling contest when he met a Christian Eriksen corner with a powerful header (90+1) to leave Jose Mourinho punching the air on the touchline.

Mourinho’s side climb to fifth – fourth-placed Chelsea up next in front of the Sky Sports cameras – while Wolves, whose 11-game unbeaten run comes to an end – slip to eighth.
