Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw

Best Odds: 5/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The game at the Molineux Stadium is slated to kick off at 7:15pm UK time on Sunday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers are having a rather inconsistent season in the Premier League, but they still remain in the hunt for the Champions League places. Nuno’s side started the month of December with defeats to Liverpool and Aston Villa, but they then got the better of Chelsea 2-1 at home before going down 2-1 to relegation candidates Burnley at Turf Moor in the league.

The Wanderers are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 20 points from 14 matches. Nuno’s side are only six points behind Everton, who are currently fourth in the standings and occupy the final Champions League spot.

Team news:

Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker could miss the match against Tottenham due to injury, while defender Jonny and striker Raul Jimenez are long-term injury absentees.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur have sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 25 points from 14 matches. Jose Mourinho’s side are just a point behind fourth-placed Everton and six points behind leaders and defending champions Liverpool.

Spurs had been going strong in the Premier League before they suffered back-to-back defeats. Following a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in London, the North London club lost 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield and then went down 2-0 to Leicester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. However, Mourinho’s side returned to winning ways on Wednesday evening when they got past Stoke City 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Team news:

Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso will miss the game against Wolves due to a hamstring injury, but Tanguy Ndombele is fit and could start.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Tottenham Hotspur have won their last three league games at Wolves.
  • Wolves have conceded in all of their last seven league matches.
  • Tottenham have not lost three successive away league games since November 2012.
  • Tottenham striker Harry Kane is leading the assists chart in the league (10).
  • Wolves have scored just three goals from set-pieces in the league this season.

Conclusion

Wolves are a tricky side to negotiate, and it is going to be extremely tough for Tottenham to break them down. There is a very good chance that the match could end in a draw.
