Tottenham’s victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers this afternoon has since given rise to a remarkable pair of statistics, surrounding Jose Mourinho’s time with the club.
Kane on target
The Lilywhites were of course back in action a short time ago.
Spurs welcomed Wolves to north London, for a Premier League showdown.
The clash marked a vital one for Ryan Mason’s men, who, amid a tense battle for European football, were aware ahead of kick-off that a victory would see them leapfrog West Ham into 6th.
And, when all was said and done at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, bag all three points is precisely what the hosts managed. A dominant display eventually saw Spurs emerge on the right side of a 2-0 scoreline.
Harry Kane was first on target, climbing back to the top of the Premier League’s goalscoring charts courtesy of a typically composed finish:

And Pierre-Emile Højbjerg rounded out the afternoon’s scoring just beyond the hour mark, lashing home on the rebound after Gareth Bale’s initial effort was kept out by Rui Patricio.
Mason bests Mou
In turn, Tottenham have officially climbed back into the Premier League’s top-6, with just two games left to play.
As outlined above, though, the Lilywhites’ downing of Wolves proved not only significant from a team perspective, but also from an individual one for boss Ryan Mason.
This comes with a remarkable statistic surrounding the attacking output of the capital giants on Sunday, in comparison to that under the watch of Jose Mourinho, having come to the fore online:
24 – Tottenham had 24 shots in this match, while 13 of which were on target – both figures exceed any amount they had in a single Premier League match under previous manager José Mourinho. Approach.
