Tottenham stormed home at White Hart Lane to beat Wolves 3-1 after going a goal down just before half-time.

Steven Fletcher put the visitors ahead with a volley from close range just before the break but Spurs rallied to score three times in the final 15 minutes.

New boy Rafael van der Vaart converted a penalty in the 76th minute for his first Tottenham goal before Roman Pavlyuchenko tapped in to give his side the lead with three minutes remaining and then Alan Hutton bundled home after a mix up between Wolves keeper Marcus Hahnemann and defender Richard Stearman.

The win allowed Spurs to jump to fourth whilst Wolves dropped to 15th with their second loss of the season.
