Conor Coady posts on Instagram after 2-0 win over Tottenham

Wolves captain Conor Coady has posted on Instagram after the club beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 today.

Wanderers bounced back from defeat to Arsenal in fantastic fashion, with Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker grabbing the goals for the visitors.

Jimenez capitalised on some poor goalkeeping from Hugo Lloris to fire in a brilliant volley.

Then Dendoncker scored following good work from Nelson Semedo and Daniel Podence.

Antonio Conte decided to change his formation midway through the first-half and hooked Ryan Sessegnon, which was a testament to the tactics of Bruno Lage.

After the break, Spurs applied more pressure, but Wolves showcased the defensive solidity that has been on show for most of the season.

Despite some dicey moments, there was no way through for Spurs, meaning Wolves were able to exact revenge for the 1-0 loss in the reverse fixture.

It was a proud day for Luke Cundle, who made his first start for the first-team.

He featured in midfield with Dendoncker and Ruben Neves, and gave a great account of himself.

And the teenager was the subject of a heart-warming post on Instagram from Coady.

He wrote: “Fantastic day and brilliant win … proud of this little fella! Keep on pushing boys.”

Cundle should be proud of himself after making first Wolves start

Coady was always going to sum it up. ‘Proud’ is certainly the word many fans would use about Cundle after today.

He has been working away with the U23s, and this season he has been a regular on Lage’s bench.

He recently made his debut in the Premier League against Southampton right at the end of the game. But today was his chance to make an impression.

You couldn’t tell it was his first start. He fitted in seamlessly, and hopefully he can now kick on.

Lage has challenged him to work hard and there’s no doubt he’ll do that.

It will certainly be interesting to see his level of involvement if Moutinho is out for weeks.
