Wolves vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 19:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
The Wolves and Tottenham Spurs will face off for the first time in the last 6 years. Most notably, this will be one of the most interesting games of the weekend.
Wolverhampton will be hosting the Spurs at the Molineux Stadium for this EPL fixture. Wolves have taken to life in the Premier League fairly well as expected this season despite 2 back-to-back defeats in the hands of Watford and Brighton.
The team has of late struggled to score in their last 2 matches despite a perfect scoring ability this season. They are currently in closing in the top ten teams with 15 points. Nuno Santo has no injury ahead of this home game. This implies that we may not see Santo make any change to the squad he engaged in the fixture against Brighton last weekend.
Tottenham are desperate for a win to bounce back to winning ways. This is because of their loss to the reigning champions this Monday. At the moment, Tottenham are in the news for all wrong reasons courtesy of the saga over their new stadium. Nevertheless, this should not be a reason for them not to perform in this matchup.
They are currently in the 5th place on the league standings with 21 points. This makes them be among top five high contenders for the league title. In my view, they will come into this game determined to stay the race for the league title. This implies that they will strive to scoop a win against a tough side.
Dele Alli has recovered from his injury and is highly likely to come in together with Harry Kane and Lamela in the forward positions among the starting XI. Jan Vertonghen and Vincent Janssen are both the only injury concerns for Tottenham as the head to the Molineux.
