League position: 2nd This was Tottenham Hotspur's biggest home defeat in the Premier League since the 3-1 loss to Manchester City on 14 April 2018. This was Spurs' 28th game at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League and the first that they lost after taking the lead. This was their first defeat in their last 40 games in the Premier League against newly promoted teams since 21 April 2012 at Queens Park Rangers.

Comments:

League position: 7th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now won two of their seven games in this Premier League season against big six opponents (lost two) and remained unbeaten in the three away games (won one). Wolves had now scored 18 of their 23 goals so far in this Premier League season in the second-half of games. After only ten games, they had now equalled their club record for the most away wins in a Premier League season (four in 2009-10).
