Premier League results: Tottenham stunned by Wolves at Wembley, Brighton beat Everton, Fulham snatch late victory

Ten teams were in action in Saturday’s 3pm kick-offs in the Premier League. Here’s what happened…

Tottenham 1-3 Wolves

Tottenham’s title hopes suffered a damaging blow as Wolves came from behind to win at Wembley.

Spurs had looked like piling the pressure on leaders Liverpool in the Premier League title race after Harry Kane celebrated his new year MBE in style with a brilliant first-half strike.

But Wolves had other ideas and enjoyed a memorable first visit to the new national stadium as goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa in the final 18 minutes gave them a deserved three points.

It was a game too far for Spurs, whose relentless run of fixtures finally caught up with them, and they could now end the weekend nine points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Brighton 1-0 Everton

Jurgen Locadia scored for the second successive match as Brighton ended a four-game winless run by beating Everton 1-0.

The £14million Dutchman fired home on the turn from close range in the 59th minute to settle a tight encounter at the Amex Stadium.

Locadia, who registered his first goal of the season in the Boxing Day draw with Arsenal, was initially flagged offside but the decision was overturned by referee Andrew Madley, with replays showing Pascal Gross’ corner had bounced into the striker’s path off Toffees midfielder Andre Gomes.

Leicester 0-1 Cardiff

Victor Camarasa’s stunning stoppage-time strike earned Cardiff a vital 1-0 win at Leicester after Neil Etheridge’s inspired display.

The goalkeeper saved James Maddison’s second-half penalty before Camarasa struck from 25 yards.

Philippines international Etheridge pulled off a string of fine saves to help earn the Bluebirds a precious victory – their first away in the league this term – in their battle against the drop.

He denied Ricardo Pereira, Jamie Vardy and Maddison as Cardiff moved four points above the Premier League relegation zone.

Watford 1-1 Newcastle

Abdoulaye Doucoure came off the bench to salvage a point for a below-par Watford against a Newcastle side which had looked like securing an important away win.

Salomon Rondon, back in the Magpies’ starting XI after being on the bench at Liverpool, hustled the Hornets’ defence all day and his first-half header had appeared enough to have the visitors on course to three valuable points in their fight for Premier League survival.

But Watford, who made six changes from their Boxing Day defeat to Chelsea, roused Vicarage Road as substitute Doucoure headed them level with eight minutes remaining to seal a 1-1 draw.

Fulham 1-0 Huddersfield

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a stoppage-time winner as Fulham beat bottom side Huddersfield to move to within a point of Premier League safety.

The visitors struggled to impress at Craven Cottage when they gifted Fulham a potentially season-defining penalty in the 81st minute, but Aboubakar Kamara resisted Mitrovic to take the spot-kick – only to see Jonas Lossl save his effort.

He appeared to have cost the hosts two crucial points against a rival for relegation, but Mitrovic rescued him as Fulham attacked on the counter to snatch a dramatic win.

Huddersfield have now lost successive seven league matches, equalling a club record set in 1955, and remain five points adrift of 17th-place Southampton at the bottom of the table.
