Wolves' Sensational Stoppage-Time Comeback Stunned Tottenham

On Saturday afternoon, the Premier League saw Wolves orchestrate a remarkable comeback against Tottenham, sealing a dramatic victory with two goals in stoppage time. The hero of the moment was Mario Lemina, whose clinical finish in the seventh minute of additional time, set up by a perfectly timed pass from Pablo Sarabia, sent Molineux into euphoria.

Sarabia himself had been instrumental in Wolves' resurgence, levelling the score just six minutes earlier with a moment of brilliance. His sublime volley, executed after an audacious self-flick in mid-air, showcased the Spaniard's skill and composure under pressure.

Tottenham, looking to bounce back from a chaotic 4-1 defeat to Chelsea, initially took the lead with Brennan Johnson tapping home a Pedro Porro pass. However, their joy was short-lived as Wolves, buoyed by energetic pressing and relentless attacking intent, gradually took control of the game.

Despite creating numerous opportunities, Wolves struggled to find the finishing touch, with Hwang Hee-chan and Sasa Kaladjzic missing close-range chances. Nevertheless, their persistence paid off in the dying moments, condemning Tottenham to back-to-back defeats.

For Spurs, the result was a bitter pill to swallow, as they missed a chance to reclaim the top spot in the Premier League and suffered a dent in their impressive 10-game unbeaten start to the season. The late heroics by Wolves not only secured a crucial win but also added another layer of unpredictability to the fiercely competitive Premier League landscape.
