Tottenham comfortably beat Wolves on Sunday to move into sixth-place and keep alive their hopes of playing European football next season.
Harry Kane’s 31st goal in all competitions, and his first under Ryan Mason, set Spurs on their way to a third straight home victory before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sealed the three points which saw Mason’s men climb above West Ham and into a Europa League place.
It could, and perhaps should have been more for Tottenham, who struck the post on three occasions, with both Kane and Sergio Regulion both coming close.
Dele Alli was one of those to be denied by the woodwork, and is still searching for his first Premier League goal of the campaign, but it was an impressive performance from the 25-year-old, who was picked out for specific praise by a delighted Mason.
He told Football.London: “Dele was excellent. I don’t really like singling out players but it’s hard not to because I’m sure everyone felt it.
“He ran, he competed, he pressed, he created opportunities. I’m sure he’s disappointed not to get a goal himself. It was an excellent number 10 performance, I’m really, really pleased.”
