Tottenham Hotspur secured a comfortable victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at home courtesy of Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Tottenham Hotspur got back to winning ways following a disappointing loss against Leeds United. Spurs bounced back against Wolverhampton Wanderers with a 2-0 victory and were clearly the better side throughout the 90 minutes.
The hosts led at half-time after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg set up Harry Kane for his 22nd Premier League goal of the season that came right before the half-time whistle. They then doubled their lead after Gareth Bale‘s attempt on goal was saved by Rui Patricio but a relentless Hojbjerg was there first to fire the ball into the back of the net.
Tottenham Hotspur now move up the table to sixth position and are four points below fifth-placed Liverpool, with two games remaining to be played. Meanwhile, the traveller’s are 12th on the table and now travel to Goodison Park in midweek to take on Everton. Here are the talking points from the fixture.

THE GOLDEN BOOT IS WITHIN SIGHT FOR HARRY KANE
Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah are the joint top-scorers of the Premier League this season with 22 goals each. Both the forwards found the back of the net on Sunday evening for their respective sides and the race for the Golden Boot will run down to the wire with two games remaining.
Kane could have had a hat-trick against Wolves had he worn his shooting boots. The English international struck the post within the first five minutes of the game from a long-range effort and was then denied a clear goal after Conor Coady‘s heroic goal-line clearance to deny the striker. It was not the best performance from the 27-year-old striker who could have added more goals to his tally.
