Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 Tottenham Hotspur 2
Scorers: Adebayor, Defoe
Team: Friedel; Walker, King, Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto; Kranjcar, Parker (Livermore), Modric, Bale, Adebayor, Defoe (Dos Santos) Subs (unused): Cudicini, Bassong, Townsend, Falque, Pavlyuchenko
|Adebayor - debut goal|
Ledley king made a surprise return to the Spurs' team in place of the injured Michael Dawson, while new signings, Adebayor and Scott Parker made their debuts. Nico Kranjcar started in place of Aaron Lennon who was injured. Spurs faced two former players in the Wolves team - Jamie O'Hara and Michael Kightly who replaced the injured Matt Jarvis.
|Defoe scored second goal|
Tottenham now have three points which after the disappointing start to the season, is in one point more than they collected from the games against the same opposition last season.
The positives from this game are that Adebayor and Defoe both scored, Parker made an impression in midfield, Luka Modric played and King was fit enough for the whole game. The win will lift the confidence of the whole team while a clean sheet is a major bonus for the defence after the previous traumatic games. On the downside is the question of why Gareth Bale is playing on the right - it nullifies the strength of the team's most dangerous player.
Tottenham's season started here and now they head off to Greece for their Europa League game on Thursday, with Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Sunday week.
