In the third minute of the first half, Kuluczewski’s back-footed pass from the right was collected by Foro and he sent a low, quick right-footed cross into the box.
Brennan Johnson finished with his left foot to give Spurs a 1-0 lead, but Wolverhampton substitute Pablo Sarabia equalized in the first minute of second-half stoppage time with a left-footed volley after running onto a Mateusz Cunha cross from the left inside the Tottenham box and catching it with his right foot.
Mario Lemina then scored the winner in the seventh minute of second-half stoppage time, slotting home with his right foot in the box after Sarabia’s penetrating pass from the right.
Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan both played the full game but failed to record an offensive point.
The focus of the match was on Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan.
In its pre-match highlights, the BBC mentioned Hwang as the only Wolverhampton player to have scored in each of their opening six home games, noting that “the South Korean has scored a goal or assist in each of his last five games, joining Alan Shearer at Blackburn in 1995-1996, Les Ferdinand at Newcastle and Thierry Henry in 2004-2005.”
