Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo hailed his side’s energy levels as “amazing” after they came from behind twice to beat Tottenham on Sunday.

Spurs led in the first half through goals from Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier, either side of Matt Doherty’s equaliser.

However, Nuno’s side stepped it up in the second half with Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez on the scoresheet to help Wolves claim a massive result in their hunt for a top-four spot.

Speaking to Match of the Day after the game, Nuno revealed his admiration for his side overcoming a key test against a tough opponent.

“It’s amazing the energy levels that we put into the game,” the manager said.

“They recover very well. It’s a challenge, and when you really embrace the challenge you give everything you have, and this is what we are doing.

“We should start the game better, we didn’t start the game so well. Tottenham is such an amazing team and can create so many problems.

“The second half was much, much better, more organised, better pressing and the movements for the goal was good.”

The result was Spurs’ third defeat in a row in all competitions but put Wolves to within three points of the top four.


Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho insisted that the result was “totally unfair”.

The Spurs manager also claimed that his side were not aggressive enough for parts of the game.
