Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Winks has revealed that club’s dressing room was ‘fuming’ after they lost to Wolves at Wembley.
Having opened the score; thanks to Harry Kane, into half time, it appeared as though Spurs would see out another win on home soil on Saturday.

Wolves, though, had other plans; and came from behind with three goals in the final 20 minutes of the match to register an unlikely loss on their hosts.
Winks, who has been starting thanks to the absence of Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele; admitted that they expected to beat Wanderers and were left extremely frustrated by the dropping of points as the race for the Premier League title gets tougher.
“We said before the game that it was must-win, so to come away with a defeat… everyone is fuming,” Winks told the Evening Standard.
“I have to be careful about this. We are doing really well. We have had one defeat since Arsenal away.
“We have had some fantastic results in the Champions League and the Premier League and it is important we don’t get carried away with a defeat. Listen; when people say that on social media; that is their own opinion, but inside the club we know how far we can go. We have belief.
“To be considered title contenders and to be sitting here disappointed that we aren’t closer to the top than we’d expect, it just shows us how well we are doing. We have high expectations and if we don’t come away with a win against Wolves we get frustrated.”
