Spurs are spent thanks to hectic schedule, claims Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino's team found themselves in the title picture thanks to five straight league wins and a mini-collapse from defending champions Manchester City.

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

Second-placed Tottenham went on the attack early with Son Hueng-min shooting just wide before Christian Eriksen's curling effort brought a spectacular save out of Rui Patricio.

Kane fired Tottenham into the lead with a superb left-footed strike after 22 minutes, and the London club maintained that scoreline until Willy Boly equalised for the visitors in the 72nd minute.

What does it mean? But a home defeat to Wolves undoes some of the hard work that put them in the mix and this could be a result they come to rue at the end of the season.

"But in the second half we started to feel maybe the game was over, and when you feel the game is over you start to play the way you play, start to decide the wrong way, start to play too many long balls and then was hard to recover the balls". As Wolves grew in confidence, an equaliser looked most likely and it came from the head of the formidable Boly, who rose highest to send his effort past Lloris and begin the visitors' comeback.

Partial Federal Shutdown Unlikely to End This Year
The shutdown is idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers and beginning to pinch citizens who count on some public services. And yet, somehow, the government has been (partially) shuttered for six days now - and the Democrats have yet to surrender.

Kane may not have been able to inspire a result to match his awarding of an MBE in the New Year honours, but he did at least produce a finish befitting of the occasion. Lucas Moura and Harry Kane scored two more goals for the Spurs in the win.

Tottenham Hotspur have missed out on the chance to close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, having slipped to a costly 3-1 loss at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, he skipped global duty in November and Spurs instantly saw an upturn in his form as Son netted the first of seven Premier League goals this season against Chelsea on November 24.

But Tottenham - who had scored 11 goals in their previous two festive fixtures, will be bitterly disappointed that they did not beat Wolves after dominating the first half.

The Premier League match between Tottenham and Wolves will be broadcast live on NBC Sports.

- Spurs striker Harry Kane has had a hand in 12 goals in his last 12 Premier League appearances against newly-promoted teams (11 goals and one assist).
