Spurs are desperate to record the first Premier League win in four games when they visit Molineux Stadium on Sunday. Here is our Wolves vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview for that clash.
Wolves Recent Form & Team News
A third defeat from four Premier League games this month (W1) will have Wolverhampton Wanderers fans sipping on a little extra sherry to lament their slip out of the top ten, a run that’s coincided with the loss of star striker Raúl Jiménez. An average of 0.75 goals scored per fixture across those four games – compared to 1.1 on average before – is further proof of the Mexican man’s importance.
To their credit though, Wolves beat Chelsea 2-1 in their last match here, in what was their third consecutive home game to see a goalless first half, and only the second here this term that they scored more than once. Subsequently, Molineux is yet to witness a goal inside the opening 15 minutes this PL campaign.
Player to watch: Club-record signing Fábio Silva scored last time out, as he netted Wolves’ 84th consecutive PL goal by a non-British player.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be without Raúl Jiménez (concussion) and Jonny (knee). Leander Dendoncker is questionable to feature on Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur Recent Form & Team News
Tottenham Hotspur’s title credentials have taken a beating with just one win from their last five Premier League games elbowing them off top spot and out of the top five. A 2-0 defeat in the last round was not only the first PL game this season in which they trailed at the break (HT: W7, D6, L1), but was also the first time since March 2000 that they conceded both an own goal and a penalty goal in a single PL match.
Although winless in their last three PL road trips, Tottenham will be buoyed by the three-game winning H2H run they possess here, the last two of which they led at HT. However, don’t rule Spurs out if they fail to lead at HT again – three of their four PL away wins this campaign saw a drawn first half.
Player to watch: Son Heung-min is Tottenham’s first goalscorer in six PL games this term.
Hot stat: Seven of the last eight H2Hs featured goals in both halves.
Jose Mourinho cannot count on Giovani Lo Celso (muscle) and Japhet Tanganga (shoulder). Gareth Bale (knock) is questionable to play.
