- This was only the third time that Spurs have lost a Premier League home game by 2+ goals under Mauricio Pochettino – the other two were against Liverpool (0-3 in August 2014) and Manchester City (1-3 in April 2018).
- Spurs suffered a Premier League home defeat after opening the scoring for the first time since May 2016 (1-2 v Southampton).
- Wolves have only lost two of their seven Premier League games against ‘big six’ opponents this season (W2 D3 L2), managing to avoid defeat in each of their three away games (W1 D2).
