Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham lost their heads against Wolves

Tottenham had failed to register a single shot between the start of the second half and Boly's leveller, and there was a further blow to come before full time.

Harry Kane's early strike put Spurs a goal to the good as they looked to keep pace with leaders Liverpool, but three late Wolves strikes turned the match on its head to stun Spurs, who Pochettino feels just ran out of steam. They started to enjoy more of the ball, pushed us back and began creating chances, Cavaleiro firing well wide before Matt Doherty scuffed his shot from the edge of the area after substitute Helder Costa's pull back.

"What can I say, Sonny is doing a fantastic job for the team", said Pochettino. Some games can happen, this type of result, and now we need to move on and be sure we are ready for the next game.

Spurs have been touted as realistic title challengers in recent weeks and their thumping victories over Everton and Bournemouth only enhanced that view. If you see my comments always it's about being humble.

The opener arrived in the 22nd minute, when Kane curled a wonderful left-footed effort beyond the Portugal goalkeeper from outside the box, although Wolves will feel aggrieved that play was not stopped for a potential foul on Ivan Cavaleiro in the build-up.

'It's a shame we finished the year the way we have.

"You need to play not only with quality but with energy and it was hard to find energy". Like today, we dropped a little bit our energy and focus and in the last 20 minutes we conceded three goals.

- Spurs suffered a Premier League home defeat after opening the scoring for the first time since May 2016 (2-1 v Southampton). "And today it's a clear example if you are not consistent enough, with not only good quality during the game, but the right energy, it's hard to compete for these things".

Pochettino felt Tottenham struggled to cope after Boly's equaliser.

They killed the game four minutes later after Harry Winks was caught in possession and Costa was put through and converted easily.
