Wolves battle back to beat Tottenham and boost Champions League hopes

Raul Jimenez of Wolverhampton Wanderers celebrates with team mates after scoring his side's third goal during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on March 1, 2020 in London, United Kingdom.

Wolves' march towards Champions League qualification stepped up a notch with a 3-2 win at Tottenham where they twice came from behind.

Spurs took an early lead when Steven Bergwijn fired home (13) but Matt Doherty (24) equalised on his 250th appearance for the club.

Jose Mourinho's side then looked in control of matters at the break after Serge Aurier's fine strike (45+1), however, Diogo Jota pulled Wolves level (57) for the second time.

With the game in the balance, the visitors netted a winning goal worthy of clinching any game when Raul Jimenez thundered home an effort into the top corner (73) after a scintillating run by Jota.

The result moves Wolves above Tottenham into sixth and to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea, while Spurs have now lost three in a row in all competitions.
