Tottenham Hotspur secured a vital three points against Wolves at Molineux on Sunday, winning the game 2-1 (BBC Sport).
Lucas Moura had put Spurs ahead before Adama Traore looked to have rescued a point for the home side when he found the back of the net. However, in the dying embers, Jan Vertonghen headed home to give Jose Mourinho’s side the win.
Whilst the Belgian will grab the headlines, just as important as his goal was a fantastic save earlier in the half from Paulo Gazzaniga.
Joao Moutinho whipped in a free-kick from the right and the ball was flicked on by Romain Saiss and looked to be heading into the net, but Gazzaniga produced a brilliant save down to his right to keep it out (Sky Sports).
The Argentine is usually the number two goalkeeper at Spurs, but because Hugo Lloris is out injured he has started in their last nine Premier League outings (Transfermarkt).
Plenty of Tottenham Hotspur fans were quick to praise Gazzaniga for his save against Wolves, with some even suggesting that Lloris will struggle to get back into the side.
Here is what some had to say on Twitter…
Brilliant save that led us to the 3 points, Gazza has done an exceptional job with Hugo out and deserves our praise – keep up the great work👍

Such an underrated save not only did he save the certain goal but volleyballed it away from that danger could comfortably be our no.1
