Harry Kane scored his 250th goal for Tottenham as Antonio Conte's men survived a wobbly first half to beat Wolves 1-0.
Kane, who headed home the winner on 64 minutes after a flick-on by Ivan Perisic, now holds the Premier League record for most goals scored for a single club (185) - one more than Sergio Aguero. He is 75 behind Alan Shearer's overall record of 260.

The dominant showing by Tottenham after the break contrasted with the first 45 minutes where Wolves posted 12 shots to Tottenham's one - although much of the away team's play lacked quality with the final touch.
Some sections of the home fans booed their team off at the break but Conte rallied his troops to the desired reaction with Kane hitting the crossbar with another header before his goal and Heung-Min Son striking a post.
Spurs have now won seven of their last eight home Premier League games, including each of the last five, while Bruno Lage's Wolves are 10 games without a league win.
