Wolves 30/1 with 888 Sport to finish in top four


Raul Jimenez says Wolverhampton Wanderers are “dreaming big” after beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 on Sunday to move above them in the table and inflict a third successive Premier League defeat on Antonio Conte’s side.

Tottenham gifted the visitors two goals in the opening 20 minutes thanks to a mixture of calamitous defending and poor goalkeeping by Hugo Lloris in north London.

Jimenez capitalised on a weak Lloris punch to volley in the opener before Spurs gave away possession to allow Leander Dendoncker to double Wolves’ lead.

Bruno Lage’s side were good value for their win and they managed the game well after taking the lead while also testing Lloris on a number of further occasions.

It is the first time Conte has lost three league games in a row since his days managing Atalanta in November 2009.

Wolves climb to seventh and sit just four points behind fourth-placed West Ham United in the final Champions League spot with two games in hand.

Lage’s side – who claimed their fourth away win in a row – are now 30/1 with 888Sport to defy the odds and claim a top-four finish.

“We are always confident,” said Jimenez. “We know what we can do.

“We are in a good period and we can keep improving and go higher in the table. We are dreaming big.”
