Tony Cascarino gives verdict on Wolves after another blank

TalkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino has branded Wolves the best team he’s ever watched that don’t score a goal.

Harry Kane’s second-half header proved to be the difference between the two sides. The England captain was on hand to score from point-blank range after Ivan Perisic flicked on a corner.

That was a cruel blow for Wolves, who had dominated for most of the game.

The visitors played some fantastic stuff in the first-half, with Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and new signing Matheus Nunes pulling the strings in midfield.

Wolves created some good chances, but it is yet another game where they haven’t scored.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former striker Cascarino gave his verdict on Bruno Lage’s side.

He said: “Wolves are the best team I’ve ever watched that can’t score.

“Yesterday, they put in a superb performance of how to keep the ball and move it. But they never looked like scoring.

“Tottenham are a good side. They’re a dangerous side and they’ve got an incredible work ethic. Wolves matched them in every department. They kept the ball, Moutinho in midfield was superb yesterday. Neves likewise.

“(But) Wolves are so toothless. Honestly, they’re the best team I’ve seen who can’t score.”

Wolves are a goalscorer away from being a brilliant team

It is something Wolves fans have grown used to over the past couple of years.

A consistent goalscorer is the missing piece of the puzzle now for Wolves.

Kilman and Collins are looking solid together at the back. The midfield is now high-quality following the arrival of Matheus Nunes. And there are some very talented wide players.

If Wolves officials can add a number nine who has even a semi-decent eye for goal, then things will be looking very promising.
