The Premier League is back in our lives once again this weekend, and one of the games that we’re looking forward to more so than any other is Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur. These are two clubs that have been made very familiar with one another over the years, and in the present day, they both have bucket loads of potential regarding what they could accomplish in the not so distant future. However, both are coming off of losses in the Premier League, which could open the door for some great end to end football on Saturday.

Wolves

The juggernaut story of Wolverhampton Wanderers has been put on the backburner in recent weeks, with Wolves starting to come back down to earth after going on a phenomenal run to kick off their return to the top flight. They’re playing great football but they haven’t been able to take their chances, meaning that despite only losing twice in their last six games, they’ve only managed to score four goals in that time. Perhaps another big test against one of the biggest clubs in England could change that.

Team News

Wolves will be looking towards some potential reinforcements for help off the bench, although Neves and Moutinho will still be called upon to control the game in the middle of the park.

Tottenham

Despite the fact that they’re still very much in the mix for a spot in the top four, it feels like there’s an aura of worry around Tottenham at the moment. From their new stadium not being finished to some lingering issues about squad depth, there are certainly problems that need to be resolved sooner rather than later. Alas, while it makes all the sense in the world to think about that, they should also focus on the future – because they’ve still got a squad that is more than capable of beating any team in this division.

Team News

Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are both expected to start this game after impressive cameo against West Ham United.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at Wolves’ Molineux Stadium.
  • Tottenham lead 46-27 in the overall head to head standings.
  • In their last meeting back in January 2012, the two teams drew 1-1.
  • Wolves have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Tottenham have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.

Conclusion

Wolves and Tottenham are two fascinating teams to watch right now and that’s what should make this game a lot of fun. We think Wolves are going to try and dictate the pace as they’ve done against Manchester City and Manchester United, especially given that they’ve only lost two of their last six Premier League games against Spurs. Alas, while we think Wolves will take the lead, in the end we believe that Tottenham will be able to turn things around in order to register a 2-1 victory in what will be a tricky outing for them.
