Wolves v Tottenham player ratings: Traore 8, Neves 6; Alli 7, Kane 6

Harry Kane makes first Spurs appearance of the season during victory at Molineux

Dele Alli's penalty secured Tottenham a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wolves on Sunday as Harry Kane came off the bench to make his first Spurs appearance of the season.

England striker Kane replaced Son Heung-Min in the second half at the Molineux after the Manchester City target missed the first two games following his late return from holiday.

Kane was left out of Spurs' squad when they defeated Manchester City in their Premier League opener last weekend and also missed Thursday's Europa Conference League defeat to Pacos de Ferreira.

However, Tottenham were already ahead after Alli's 10th minute penalty by the time Kane came on to the pitch.

Alli was fouled by Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa and the midfielder picked himself up to convert the spot-kick. It was Alli's first league goal since March 2020.
