Jose Mourinho and Spurs filed out at the Molineaux to play Wolves, knowing a win will take them back into Champions League places after falling from the top in recent weeks but a game of two halves ended in another embarrassing stalemate.
Spurs scored after just 57 seconds but Jose Mourinho's men paid for their too much conservatism during the rest of the game when the hosts deservedly equalized in the dying minutes.
Spurs dug in for the second half, demonstrating their new defensive steel under Mourinho to repel marauding runs from Adama Traore and trickery by Fabio Silva in Spurs’ penalty area.
Just as it seemed the London club would hang on, Wolves' relentless attacking paid off as defender Romain Saiss met a corner in the 86th minute to head the ball in for 1-1 but Harry Kane would feel he should have done better.
There is an abundance of quality in the Spurs side, packing them behind the ball every time isn’t the best way to bring their brilliance to the fore but with the league table shaping against them, Mourinho has to do better now.
