The race for the Champions League
Chelsea will have mixed feelings about the result amid their challenge for the top four.
Tottenham have lost three of their last four Premier Leagues, including against Southampton this weekend, and it appeared to leave the door wide open for their rivals.
Fans certainly wouldn't have settled for a draw before the game, but will be more than happy given the context of the game and it was no less than the west London side deserve.
Wolves shouldn't feel too disillusioned with the result, either.
They have already secured draws against Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal, while also beating Tottenham and Chelsea in the reverse fixture.
