Wolves more than matches their visitors but it was Spurs who proved more clinical in front of goal for their first three points of the campaign.
Scott Parker’s perfect pass enabled the Manchester City loanee to round the keeper and open the scoring.
With ten minutes remaining the points were safe as Jermain Defoe brought to an end a faltering start to Harry Redknapp’s campaign.
However, Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will be disappointed his team faded badly after the interval for their first defeat of the season.
Referee: Peter Walton

Yellow cards: Walker (TOT), Parker (TOT), Johnson (WOL), Hammill (WOL)
