Wolves vs Tottenham Preview, Prediction, H2H and Team News
Jose Mourinho and co are back in action in the Premier League as they travel to the West Midlands to lock horns with Wolves at Molineux.
Wolves vs Tottenham Preview:
Tottenham Hotspur have seen a huge bump in their Premier League successful run, managing to get only one point from a possible nine and dropping down as low as the sixth spot.
However, they will be satisfied with the fact that they have a genuine chance of placing their hands on a trophy as they are drawn to Brentford in the EFL Cup semi-finals.
Since Wolves got promoted to the Premier League, it is this season where they have seemed so inconsistent despite managing reinforcements in so many positions.
Raul Jimenez is a huge miss for Wolves but Nuno Espirito Santo has a talented set of youngsters in front of him. They have managed to beat the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, but they tumbled against Burnley last time out.
Wolves vs Tottenham Head to head
Spurs are ahead when it comes to the head-to-head battles against the Wolves, winning four out of eight, losing only two. The last four games have witnessed the away team taking all the three points home, something Tottenham will be delighted about.
Wolves haven't been themselves much often in the top-flight this season. However, their performances against Chelsea and the Gunners were phenomenal. Consistency is lacking for the home side, and they would want to make it right against Spurs, another title contender.
For Jose Mourinho, it will all be about getting the basics correct, sticking to the plan, and making sure that it is executed with perfection. They were the league leaders before they played the Reds, and since the loss at Anfield and home to Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City, they are again in the hunt for a Champions League spot.
