No, it's overcooked and that will be that...
FULL-TIME - Tottenham hold on to claim all three point here at Wolves, but boy did they make life difficult for themselves. It's a BIG result, though, and the three points move Mauricio Pochettino's side above Arsenal into fourth-spot.
One last chance for Wolves, perhaps? They win a free-kick on the right flank and this is a decent crossing opportunity...
There will be FOUR minutes of added on time to be played. Have Wolves got one more sting in their tail? Spurs have managed to stall their momentum in the last few minutes.
- Yellow cardHarry WinksTottenham Hotspur
YELLOW CARD: Winks goes into the referee's book for a cynical foul on Gibbs-White.
Here is every defender's worst nightmare: Traore running at you at full sprint. It ends in frustration for Wolves, though, as he lifts his cross onto the top of the net.
- OffHélder CostaWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnAdama TraoréWolverhampton Wanderers
WOLVES SUB: Uh oh, here comes trouble. The fastest man alive, Adama Traore, replaces Costa for the last seven minutes of normal time.
The Spurs defence is carved open once more. Costa finds himself through on the left, he pulls it back for Bonatini but he can't control a simple pass! The opportunity is spurned.
- OffLucas MouraTottenham Hotspur
- OnDavinson SánchezTottenham Hotspur
TOTTENHAM SUB: It's going to be an incredibly nervy finish for the visitors, and they're going to try to shut up shop now. On comes Davinson Sanchez who takes the place of Lucas.
- Goal by penaltyRaúl JiménezWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL! Wolves 2-3 Tottenham
Jimenez rolls the ball into the right-corner, again sending Lloris the wrong way. Now we have a game on our hands!
ANOTHER PENALTY TO WOLVES! Dear, dear, Spurs are making life incredibly difficult for themselves. Foyth, for the second time tonight and on his Premier League debut, pushes over Castro inside the box and Mike Dean awards the spot-kick.
WHAT A CHANCE! Wolves should score. The Spurs defence steps up and Gibbs-White slips through a pass to Costa, but it's a panicked finish from the forward as he sidefoots it past the post with just Lloris to beat.
Gibbs-White floats in a corner from the left, as Wolves continue to pile on the pressure, but Lloris is bravely off his line to punch the delivery clear.
SHOT! Kane is played through by Lucas' pass over the top, he catches it sweetly with his laces, but Patricio makes the stop.
- Goal by penaltyRúben NevesWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL! Wolves 1-3 Tottenham
Neves steps up and strokes the penalty home confidently, sending Lloris the wrong way. Wolves have a fighting chance once more.
PENALTY TO WOLVES! Jimenez is needlessly brought down by Foyth and the referee points to the spot!
GOOD SAVE! Patricio has to be alert to tip over Kane's curler from distance. He's in the mood now.
'Mauricio Pochettino, he's magic you know' is the chant from the jubilant travelling supporters. They may be right.
- OffIvan CavaleiroWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnLéo BonatiniWolverhampton Wanderers
DOUBLE WOLVES SUB: Leo Bonatini and Morgan Gibbs-White are on for the hosts, who need a goal imminently.
- GoalHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Wolves 0-3 Tottenham
KANE SEALS THE GAME! Lloris hoofs the ball upfield, it falls to Lamela who tricks his way past a couple of defenders and pulls it back to Kane. His first shot is saved by Patricio, but he's first to react and pounces on the loose ball, slamming it past two defenders on the line and into the net. Game over.
- OffHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
- OnChristian EriksenTottenham Hotspur
SPURS SUB: Son, who came on as a err, sub, earlier, is taken off by Pochettino and replaced by Christian Eriksen. The South Korean clearly has a part to play in the Champions League tie with PSV on Tuesday, but he doesn't look pleased in the slightest to be hooked off here.
Kane, who has only one goal in his last six-and-a-half games, selfishly fires over from a tight angle when he has better options centrally.
Jimenez throws himself to ground rather theatrically under the challenge of Trippier, and Mike Dean isn't fooled. Trippier is fuming with the Wolves striker, and lets him know all about it!
Tottenham are trying their best to weather the storm, but Wolves are determined and keep coming back for more. This is exactly the start to the second-half Espirito Santo would have wanted from his side.
ANOTHER LLORIS STOP! Tottenham's defence is creaking! The visitors fail to clear the corner convincingly. The ball is picked up by Neves who lets fly from 20 yards out, forcing the fully-stretched Lloris into a save to his right.
WOLVES ON THE ATTACK AGAIN! Lloris forced into action once more as he gets down low to save Costa's shot at his near post. It comes at the cost of a corner, though.
GOOD SAVE BY LLORIS! This is a big chance for Wolves. It falls to the right man, Jimenez who is released inside the box but he can't beat the Spurs' no 1 with a powerful shot from a tight angle.
If Wolves can find an early goal in the second-half they could make things very interesting.
- 2nd Half
The second-half begins, and it's as you were in terms of personnel.
- End of 1st Half
Tottenham lead by two goals at the break, thanks to goals by Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura. Wolves may feel hard done by, though, as Raul Jimenez had a perfectly good strike ruled out.
Wolves finish the first-half strongly, as Neves drills a shot just over from outside the box.
Three minutes will be added on.
The space opens up for Lamela but he takes a heavy touch and it takes him wide. He delivers a cross, but it doesn't fit any of his team mates. Overcooked.
JUST WIDE! Wolves enjoying a bright spell in the game, and they're having a right go now. A number of corners cause Spurs problems, the ball then comes out to Jonny whose cross is inch-perfect for Boly, but he fails to direct his powerful effort at goal.
Was that the right call, though? Espirito Santo doesn't believe so, and he is having quite the heated discussion with the fourth official. The replays show he may have a right to be frustrated with the decision.
GOAL RULED OUT! A quality move from Wolves ends in a goal, but it isn't going to count. Doherty pulled it back to Jimenez who rifled a first-time volley past Lloris, but the linesman had his flag raised, adjudging Doherty to have been in an offside position.
The home crowd express their frustration as another attacking move breaks down. It just isn't happening for Wolves.
SHOT! Kane tries his luck from 25 yards, but doesn't get a lot of power into the effort. However, the ball takes an awkward bounce in front of the goalkeeper Patricio and he can only parry it. Fortunately, for him, none of the players in white are there to pick up the loose ball.
And now Wolves have a mountain to climb. Usually so solid defensively, the hosts have switched off at the back twice in the last three minutes, and they have been made to pay.
- GoalLucas MouraTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Wolves 0-2 Tottenham
LUCAS! The midfielder doubles the visitors' advantage with a cushion header! He couldn't miss, really. The former PSG man was left unmarked to head in Tripper's deadly floated cross from point-blank range.
- GoalErik LamelaTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Wolves 0-1 Tottenham
LAMELA! It's his fourth goal in his last five starts! It's a lovely finish, too. He dances past a defender, exchanges passes with Son, takes it down on his chest and slots it beyond Patricio and into the bottom corner.
OFFSIDE: Costa picks up a decent position but Jimenez takes too long to play the pass.
- Yellow cardRyan BennettWolverhampton Wanderers
YELLOW CARD: Bennett goes into the book for a late and cynical challenge on Son.
Wolves have possession, but little happening in terms of goal-mouth action. You would imagine the hosts would be pretty happy with a point.
SHOT! Curse of the commentator, eh? Kane dives into the action, latching onto Moura's excellent pass. He does everything right, narrowing the angle to take a shot on, but it's straight at the feet of Patricio and the loose ball is hacked away by Boly.
Kane has had only three touches so far!
Spurs are finding it impossible to find any space in which to move the ball around offensively. I have touched on it before but Wolves are set up so rigidly that it's difficult to create an opening.
MATCH STAT: Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 38 Premier League games against newly-promoted opposition, winning 35 of those games. Their last defeat against a top-flight newcomer came away to Wolves in 2010.
Wolves have scored only one first-half goal this season, which I find astonishing.
Wolves like to play with a solid shape, making life difficult for the opponent to break them down. But that comes at a cost: they have failed to score in their last two league matches.
SHOT! A clipped diagonal pass is gratefully received by Doherty on the right flank. He cuts inside and launches a shot at goal, but he doesn't quite catch it as he would have wanted to and Lloris is comfortably behind it.
Wolves are using a high-pressing game, which is panicking Spurs, who love to play the ball out from the back. The visitors are finding it difficult to do so.
Eriksen isn't fit, Alli is injured and now there is a huge problem for Dembele; Pochettino has something of a headache in central midfield, eh?
- OffMousa DembéléTottenham Hotspur
- OnHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
Yep, Dembele is coming off, and he is replaced by Heung-Min Son who is looking for his 50th goal for Spurs.
Play resumes, but Dembele is walking around gingerly at the side of the pitch. It isn't looking good for him.
Pochettino has a strong bench this evening, but he won't want to use any of his substitutes as early as this, with the Champions League game looming.
Dembele, making his 250th appearance for Spurs tonight, is down and in a lot of pain after a nasty collision with Costa. Not sure if he will be fit to continue here.
This is a big week for Tottenham. After tonight, they face PSV in a crucial Champions League tie on Tuesday night, followed by an away game to Crystal Palace next Saturday evening.
- 1st Half
We are underway at the Molineux Stadium.
There will be a minute's silence before kick-off, while a floral tribute was also made to the late Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
So, how will Spurs cope without Eriksen and Alli? Will their replacements prove effective in breaking down a stubborn Wolves?
Arsenal and Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw in tonight's 17:30 kickoff, meaning Spurs will move above the Gunners into fourth with a victory, level on goal difference with third-placed Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Wolves can leap into ninth if they can garner all three points.
Saturday night football? Sure what else would we all be doing, right? Pochettino would normally be relaxing with his canine companion; I'm not sure about you.
"At seven o'clock, 7:30 I am normally on my sofa with my dog, Sansa, and watching the Spanish league because they start 7:45 or France because Ligue 1 starts at eight o'clock, or Italy or different games," said Pochettino.
"It will be so strange for my dog. Not for me but my dog."
Tottenham have won five of their six Premier League games on the road this campaign, losing only at Watford.
Pochettino: "I think we're so close to getting the last level, but we need to have that patience that makes us stronger.
"I think we're strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive, and in the end to achieve what the club and fans deserve, and in the end all we want to achieve one day is to win trophies."
Espirito Santo: "Tottenham are very competitive. What I admire is what I see on the pitch and I see a very good team.
"I know him [Mauricio Pochettino] and I admire him. The quality of the work they've been doing is amazing. The core of the squad, the amount of success they have had."
TWO CHANGES FOR SPURS
Juan Foyth is handed a first start in the Premier League having impressed in the 3-1 victory at West Ham on Wednesday night.
He is one of two new faces in the Spurs line-up from the team defeated by Manchester City, with Harry Winks taking the place of Eric Dier.
Dele Alli misses out through injury, while Christian Eriksen is only fit enough for the bench.
Liverpool are currently leading at Arsenal and as it stands, will move above Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
ONE CHANGE FOR THE HOSTS
Nuno Espirito Santo makes one change as he tries to reverse a run of two successive Premier League defeats. Ivan Cavaleiro gets the nod over Adama Traore at right wing, with Diego Jota injured.

Hello and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the Premier League clash between Wolves and Tottenham.
As if Mauricio Pochettino hasn't enough problems, he now has to negotiate his third game in just four days - you would almost be forgiven for thinking it was Christmas!
Pochettino isn't feeling very cheery, though, what with the stadium problems; the lack of transfer money available and the fact his team are already five points behind leaders Manchester City.
It's a difficult game tonight, too, and Spurs would be doing well to overcome a Wolverhampton side keen to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Brighton last time out.
