Wolves host high flying Spurs as they look to get over Blades blow

Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to bounce back from their controversial defeat at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United when they host high flying Tottenham Hotspur, who themselves are looking to get back to winning ways after suffering their first league loss of the season on Monday. bring you all you need to know ahead of Saturday’s early kick off.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Gary O’Neil’s side sit in midtable. The former Bournemouth boss has steadied the ship at Wolves after the club were tipped for a relegation battle after the departure of Julen Lopetegui. Wolves are not a side to be taken lightly at home, defeating Manchester City, holding Aston Villa and Newcastle United to draws and giving Liverpool an uncomfortable afternoon from which Jurgen Klopp’s side eventually emerged with the win. Wolves will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Sheffield United last weekend.

Pedro Neto, Hugo Bueno and Joseph Hodge are all sidelined.


Tottenham have made a superb start under Ange Postecoglou and have emerged as title contenders. Even if this challenge is not sustained, Spurs are in a great position to qualify for Europe. Postecoglou has instilled a determination into his Spurs side and they will need this at Wolves who have given a number of ambitious teams a hard time at Molineux this season.

Spurs suffered their first defeat of the season in a pulsating London derby against Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Postecoglou’s side took the lead, however, Chelsea edged back into things and they were awared a penalty, and saw the hosts reduced to 10 men, when Cristian Romero saw red for fouling compatriot Enzo Fernandez in the box. Cole Palmer tucked the spot kick away to level things up. In the second half Spurs were reduced to nine men as Destiny Udogie walked for a second bookable offence. Nicolas Jackson eventually gave Chelsea the lead, but Tottenham kept pushing and had chances to level, including a disallowed goal from Eric Dier. However, a late double from Jackson sealed things for Chelsea.

Tottenham will be without the suspended Romero and Udogie for the trip to Wolves. Micky van de Ven will miss out after sustaining a serious looking thigh injury against Chelsea. James Maddison is doubtful with an ankle injury. Ben Davies is hoping to return, but may not recover from an ankle issue in time. Youngster Ashley Phillips is on standby. Ivan Perisic (knee), Manor Solomon (knee), Alfie Whiteman (ankle) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) are all out. Richarlison has undergone surgery on a groin issue and he will be another absentee. The Brazilian is expected to be out for a couple of weeks.


Tottenham have really had a great start to the season. Postecoglou who had great success with Celtic, Yokohama and the Australian national team, has made a great early impression. His fast, attacking style of football seems to suit Tottenham very well. However, a high octane London derby, possibly the most chaotic Premier League match in recent years, has taken its toll on Spurs in terms of injury and suspensions. Postecoglou will have to draft in replacements and get his side focussed for the trip to the midlands.

Wolves have produced some quality performances at home and will push Spurs all of the way. Spurs may be favourites but we feel that, like Villa and Newcastle, the North London side may have to settle for a point. We predict a score draw.
