Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET

Both teams have been performing well the past several weeks. However, Spurs have been tearing it apart at home, while the Wolves have been pretty unimpressive in road games. Likely, count on hosts Tottenham to deliver the better performance.

- Six of the last seven clashes had goals from both teams.

Tottenham vs Wolves Match Preview
Tottenham had lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Chelsea. It put their four-match unbeaten run in the league to a halt. However, the fact that they were away from home, and that too against one of the best teams in the league – could be considered a valid excuse.
At present, the Spurs are a single point away from being in possession of CL spot. They are placed sixth in the table, below Manchester United. But, the Red Devils are taking on Everton next, and this could potentially lead them to lose points.
If Jose Mourinho’s men are able to deliver a victory this Saturday, they do have an opportunity to be in contention for Europe’s premier competition.
Meanwhile, Wolves had recorded a 3-0 win at home over Norwich the prior game week. Not only was it their fourth unbeaten game on the trot, but their fourth clean sheet in a row as well.
Moreover, the Wanderers too are in contention for a CL spot, as they are trailing by just two points below United. A win for Wolves will definitely help them gain ground in going after an entry into the Champions League.
Tottenham vs Wolves Prediction
Both teams are going after a CL ticket, and the season is approaching its end. Not much time remains for the squads to make the cut, and with nothing else to lose, we can expect a fearless gameplay from both sides.
Moreover, since 2010, only a single h2h meeting between the two have resulted without goals from both teams, and at this venue, since 2003 only one such clash has occurred. In addition to that, take into account the form the offense of both sides have been showing in the past several weeks.
As such, rightfully expect goals to come from both teams this Sunday. In regards to result though, Tottenham do have the home advantage, and they are being coached by Mourinho. Furthermore, Wolves had just gained entry into this top flight a couple of seasons before, and lack in experience.
Going on, Tottenham had won seven of their last ten home games, while their counterparts were winless in six of their prior eight road trips. Also, the Spurs had recorded four of the last five h2h wins, and they had won the reverse fixture, 1-2, that too on the road.
Therefore, count on Tottenham to win at least one half of the game.
