The victory at Wigan marked the first time since February that Spurs have won three consecutive Premier League games, and it lifted the club into sixth place in the table, with a game in hand on the teams above them. Van der Vaart and Bale notched up their first league goals of the season and new boys Parker and Adebayor continued to impress.

Although Spurs were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Stoke, the Premier League season is well and truly up and running. But let's get the cup competition out of the way first – which may also be how Harry Redknapp was viewing it from the get go. A largely second string Spurs side lost in a penalty shootout, with Massimo Luongo having his effort saved by Thomas Sorensen. The young Australian will remember his debut for the wrong reasons but responsibility for the defeat should weigh more heavily on the shoulders of some his more experienced and supposedly illustrious colleagues.

A good performance and a very welcome three points mean that Spurs' season is finally up and running after an awful start. Wolves, by contrast, had begun their Premier League campaign with two wins and a draw, so a win for the visitors was by no means a sure thing. Mick McCarthy's side already look like a much more assured outfit than the one that struggled last season and Spurs had not, in any case, enjoyed much success in recent meetings between the teams.

Bottom of the Premier League. Eight goals conceded in two games, with just one scored. Injuries to key members of the squad. And the team's most important player apparently struggling to "get his head right". Well, at least David Bentley is gone.
