Brentford talisman Ivan Toney has taken a bit of time to adapt to the rigours of the top flight, but the striker was at his scintillating best in gameweek five as Wolves felt the full force of the Bees’ sting in a 2-0 defeat.
Toney opened the scoring from the penalty spot and could have easily taken the match ball home with him had it not been for VAR, and the 25-year-old then proceeded to lay the ball on a plate for Bryan Mbeumo to kill the game off before the half-time whistle blew.
The jubilation of claiming their first Premier League win of the season against Watford has since died down for Wolves, who have lost four of their opening five top-flight encounters under Lage to occupy 16th spot in the fledgling standings.
However, the Molineux outfit hit four unanswered goals past Nottingham Forest in the second round of the EFL Cup to set up a clash with Tottenham, but they have failed to make it past the fourth round of the competition since the 2011-12 season.
Lage has highlighted the importance of fans returning to Molineux this term, but the new Wolves coach is yet to see his side score on home soil during his reign, while they also suffered a dampening exit to Stoke City at home in the EFL Cup last season.
Tottenham’s humbling on their own turf succeeded a 2-2 Europa Conference League draw with Rennes and previous 3-0 Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace – not the sort of form that Santo would desire before this weekend’s North London derby with an Arsenal side starting to find their stride.

Ryan Mason famously led Tottenham out for last year’s EFL Cup final before perennial winners Manchester City shattered their dreams of silverware, but Spurs had failed to make it past the fourth round in four of the five previous editions before that.
Dele Alli‘s penalty handed Spurs all three points during their Premier League outing at Molineux a month ago, and that 1-0 victory stretched Tottenham’s unbeaten run at Molineux to six games since a 1-0 loss in the 2009-10 Premier League campaign.
