Tottenham moved just three points behind fourth place after they beat Wolves 2-1 at Molineux on Sunday.
Is Moussa Sissoko now one of the best midfielders in England?
Jan Vertonghen proved to be the north London club’s hero after he popped up at the death with a header to secure all three points for his side. The Belgian, however, was not the only Tottenham player to star in that victory.
Lucas Moura also managed to get his name on the scoresheet when he opened the scoring before Adama Traore equalised, while Moussa Sissoko continued his fine form in the middle of the park.
Against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, Sissoko won 4/5 ground duels and had an 88% pass success rate (via SofaScore). He came into the game having recently scored against Burnley and Bournemouth, showing the kind of form he has been in under Jose Mourinho.
And Tottenham supporters were keen for it not to go under the radar as they took to Twitter to praise the France international after the Wolves game…
When the GOAT speaks we listen diligently. The GOAT has now said ‘And finally the victory came .’ What an incredible story teller, where would we be without the GOAT? Nowhere. pic.twitter.com/M4xUo7JOTb
