With a spirited victory over Wolves, Tottenham rose to the top of the Premier League as Harry Kane scored his 250th goal for the club.
Ivan Perisic’s flick on from a corner was quickly headed home by the England forward to give Spurs their justification for their second-half domination.
With Kane’s contribution, the home squad became the fifth since the Premier League’s founding in 1992 to reach 1,000 goals at home.

As Spurs pushed forward in an effort to score, the 29-year-old and his strike partner Son Heung-min both struck the woodwork.
They played with a level of energy that was quite different from Wolves, whose team had seven Portuguese players, the joint-most of any foreign country in a starting XI in the competition.
The hosts were limited to just one shot in the 45th minute by Bruno Lage’s team, and it was unlucky to see Matheus Nunes, a record signing, flick Ruben Neves’ probing pass just inches wide of the Spurs net.
However, Wolves lacked a spark in the final third as their winless top-flight record reached 10 games, despite the promise of Nunes’ performance and the neat and tidy football that saw them produce numerous decent openings.
