Tottenham vs Wolves Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-3.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League title challenge continues on Saturday afternoon when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley Stadium.

Predictions

Tottenham’s good form had gone under the radar up until the start of the festive period, with the title race focus on Manchester City and Liverpool.

But back-to-back thrashings handed out to both Everton and Bournemouth have caused many to tip Mauricio Pochettino’s side for what appeared to be an unlikely first place Premier League finish.

Spurs have now won five league matches in a row, scoring 16 goals in that period.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are nestled nicely in midtable and moved onto 25 points thanks to a late Roman Saiss equaliser against Fulham on Boxing Day.

But Wolves have tasted victory just once in their last five Premier League away matches.

Tottenham’s attacking performances have been devastating in recent weeks and a similar performance would see them beat Wolves 3-1.

Betting Tips

Tottenham are a joy to watch at the moment, exhibiting some of the best attacking football seen across the Premier League so far this season. But Wolves are attractive going forward too and have scored at least once in eight of their last nine away matches, so it’s surprising that betting sites seem to offer odds of better than evens for both teams to find the back of the net.

Son Heung-Min has been Tottenham’s in-form player throughout December but he’s due a rest over the next few fixtures. Christian Eriksen should feature though and he has three goals in his last four Spurs appearances. He’s capable of beating goalkeepers from anywhere inside the final third, as well as being on free-kicks.

Statistics

Head to Head

Wolverhampton Wanderers have a dismal record against Tottenham Hotspur, losing nine of their last 13 matches against the North London side. Spurs won the reverse fixture between these teams by a 3-2 scoreline back in November, with Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela scoring their goals. Wolves last beat Tottenham away from home in December 2009, with Kevin Doyle getting the only goal of the game at White Hart Lane.

Stats

  • Christian Eriksen has assisted 18 Harry Kane goals in the Premier League – more than any other active pairing.
  • Wolves have only lost on one of their last eight visits to London in the Premier League.
  • Son Heung-Min has scored seven goals in his last 10 Tottenham appearances.
  • Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld will make his 100th Premier League appearance if he starts against Wolves.
