Harry Kane made his first appearance of the season as Tottenham beat Wolves 1-0- but he didn't receive an easy ride from the home fans at Molineux.
Kane, 28, missed Spurs' first two games of the season against Manchester City and Pacos de Ferreira after returning late to training following an extended summer break.
But the wantaway centre-forward was named amongst the substitutes against Wolves and was called upon with 20 minutes left, replacing Son Heung-Min.
The City target showed no signs of rustiness following his introduction, forcing a save from Wolves stopper Jose Sa and picking up a yellow card for time-wasting as Tottenham ran out 1-0 winners.
After the game, Kane went over to the Spurs fans in attendance and gave them a round of applause, which they returned in kind.
It wasn't a total walk in the park for the England captain, however, with Wolves supporters giving him a rough ride following his introduction.
Taking delight at Kane's transfer saga, Wolves fans sung a hat-trick of savage songs.
Do you think Kane will be a Tottenham player at the end of the transfer window? Let us know in the comments section.
One went: "Harry Kane, he wants to f*** off."
Another jabbed: "There's only one greedy b*****d."
While a third chant joked: "He'll be a Manc in the morning".
Spurs fans offered a reply to the songs directed at their captain, bellowing: "Harry Kane, he's worth more than Wolves."
Kane's return to the Tottenham side coincided with reports that Manchester City are still £50million short of Daniel Levy's valuation.
It is understood City are ready to offer £120million, with further incentives to boost the fee, but even that may not be enough to acquire the striker's services.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are now third in the Premier League after recording the second victory of the season.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Spurs boss Espirito Santo said: "Relentless, compact, solid, a unit – everybody helping each other because it was tough from minute one, but we defended very well.
"I am very proud. When you are not able to do a lot of things, you do what you have to do take what we came here for.
"We started well, had a couple of movements that were really dangerous – the second half much better, we had more and had clear chances to kill the game.
"We had two tough matches, very demanding opponents, so we are growing and have a lot of things to improve and work on."
