Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina Seal Dramatic Victory for Wolves in Injury Time
In a thrilling turn of events at Molineux, Wolves orchestrated a stunning comeback to secure a memorable victory against Tottenham, as Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina found the net in injury time.
Tottenham initially took the lead with Brennan Johnson’s early strike, marking his first goal for Spurs. The visitors seemed poised for a smash-and-grab win, benefiting from Wolves’ missed opportunities. Despite riding their luck, Tottenham’s two-point lead at the top of the table slipped away with successive defeats.
Wolves, recovering from a controversial loss at Sheffield United, showcased clear progress under manager Gary O’Neil. The hosts, undeterred by Tottenham’s early lead, responded well, with Ben Davies blocking a shot from the tenacious Rayan Ait-Nouri.
Despite Spurs’ defensive tentativeness, Wolves struggled to find the finishing touch until Sarabia and Lemina turned the tide in a sensational finish. The victory underscored Wolves’ resilience and determination, contrasting sharply with Tottenham’s recent woes, including injuries to key players like James Maddison and Micky van de Ven.
Spurs, experiencing their first setback under Ange Postecoglou in a 4-1 defeat to Chelsea, faced additional challenges with suspensions to Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie. The defensive vulnerabilities were exploited by Wolves, who initially failed to capitalize on several chances.
Wolves’ combative second-half performance, led by Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, kept the pressure on Tottenham. Hwang Hee-Chan missed a golden opportunity to level the score, and without star man Pedro Neto, Wolves lacked a clinical edge. Tottenham, missing the creative influence of Maddison, struggled to create chances after their early opener.
As the match progressed, Wolves’ desperation for an equalizer left spaces for Tottenham to exploit, but it was Wolves who turned the game around in stoppage time. Substitute Sarabia, on the pitch for just two minutes, secured the deserved leveller before Mario Lemina sealed the victory in the seventh minute of stoppage time, sending Molineux into wild celebration. The dramatic turnaround highlighted the unpredictable nature of football and the resilience of a Wolves side on the rise.
