Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers highlights (2-3)

Tottenham Hotspur 2 vs 3 Wolverhampton Wanderers highlights 1.3

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho speaking to Match of the Day: "I think unfair. The players didn't deserve the defeat. We were punished by, I would say, mentality mistakes. You have to be ruthless against teams like Wolves that plays fantastically well on the counter-attack.

"We deserve much more than these results but this is what it is. [The front three] combined well, they did what they can. They did the plan that we worked on in the week. We had lots of arrivals in dangerous positions, but it is quite frustrating to see they don't have that feeling."

On leaving out Alderweireld and Vertonghen: "I think Eric Dier played very, very well, so when the player you bring in as a replacement plays very, very well the question could be why did you play Dier and not why did you leave out Toby and Jan.

"I tried to play with Davinson [Sanchez] and Tanganga, which are the two fastest players. Dier is because he is a midfield player, he has the possibility to come out with the ball and play as an extra midfield player. I thought they did very well apart from the goals, which are collective responsibility, not individual responsibility."

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, also to Match of the Day: "It's amazing the energy levels that we put into the game. They recover very well. It's a challenge, and when you really embrace the challenge you give everything you have, and this is what we are doing.

"We should start the game better. Tottenham is such an amazing team and can create so many problems. The second half was much, much better, more organised, better pressing and the movements for the goal was good."

On beating his former manager: "It's nothing special, was a very, very tough game. I have huge admiration for Jose Mourinho, for me he is a reference."
