Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Premier League
Sixth meets eighth as Tottenham host Wolves in a battle to see who still has a realistic chance of having European football football next season. The sheen is already wearing thin on Jose Mourinho since his arrival, but can he reverse his fortunes against Wolves?
The home side hasn’t emerged from this fixture with a win since September 2010, when Tottenham recorded a 3-1 victory. Since then, fortune has favoured the away side. The last meeting between these two sides ended in a 2-1 win for Tottenham just before Christmas.
Jose Mourinho’s side are still without the services of Harry Kane, with the date for his eventual return still unknown. Midfielder Moussa Sissoko is also still out with an injury, which, oddly, happened in the same game that Kane suffered his hamstring problem.
For Wolves, meanwhile, Nuno Santo Espirito could shuffle his pack following the Europa League round of 32 clash against Espanyol on Thursday. The Wanderers held a 4-0 lead from the first leg, and it’s unknown at this stage how much the Wolves boss will tinker with his lineup in the midst of a busy schedule.
Tottenham vs. Wolves Preview and Predictions
Both of these sides have aspirations of Champions League football for next season. Tottenham are currently still in the competition, but lost at home to German side RB Leipzig last week and look as if they are heading out at the last-16 stage. Will they qualify for next season’s tournament? It remains to be seen.
However, they aren’t a million miles behind fourth-placed Chelsea - just four points, with 11 games of the season remaining. Should Chelsea lose momentum, and with Manchester United being inconsistent, Tottenham could still inch themselves into fourth place. They are priced at 2.45 to take all three points this weekend and put their defeat at Chelsea last weekend behind them.
From a Wolves perspective, all will depend on how they navigate the waters of Thursday night-Sunday football. With a 4-0 lead in the Europa League, will Nuno ring the changes due to the game against Espanyol? You would be inclined to believe he will, with one eye on this encounter. The away side are 3.20 to emerge victorious, or 3.15 to leave London with a draw.
The match to end as a draw at 3.15
These two sides seem evenly matched. With both teams having the ability to give little away, this won’t be a game for the purists.
Under 1.5 goals at 2.95
Wolves haven’t conceded in their last four games in all competitions, whilst Spurs look a little toothless at times without Harry Kane. Don’t expect a lot of goals in this game.
