Wolverhampton vs Tottenham begins 03.11.2018 at 21:00 CET
It is natural that returnee to the elite football league in England tries to defeat the Spurs but given current shape of both teams Wolverhampton fans would probably satisfy with just one point. The Wolves lost two previous league matches; to Watford at home and Brighton away, which at the same time put an end to six-game unbeaten streak of four wins and two draws that in fact propelled them in the upper half of table.
After last two defeats Wolverhampton still occupies very good 10th place in the Premier League table, and it is very good that it has even 10 points more than teams in the drop zone. We have to stress that with just nine received goals the Wolves have the fifth best defence in the league, but manager Santo is concerned lately with reduced effectiveness. We expect the Wolves strongest team on the pitch for match with the Spurs, given fact that Santo has no problems with injuries or suspensions.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Rui Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny – Costa, Jota – Jimenez
We have said in the introduction that Tottenham lost previous league match to leading Manchester City 1-0 at home, which at the same time put an end to Spurs’ four-game winning streak. Despite the setback Tottenham currently occupies solid fifth place in the table and has just one point fewer than Arsenal, three than Chelsea and five than leading duo Manchester City and Liverpool.
After losing to the Citizens, the Spurs dispatched West Ham with a reserve team last week and qualified for the quarter-finals of the League Cup, however, their situation in the Champions League is fairly unenviable given they won just one point in first three rounds. Now, they are focused on this league match with the Wolves and they expect to win although stopper Vertonghen, defender Rose, midfielder Dier and forward Janssen are injured and will probably not play.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies – Winks, Dembele – Lamela, Eriksen, Lucas – Kane
Wolverhampton vs Tottenham PICK
Regardless of fact that the Wolves were defeated just once at home this season we will give advantage to the guests from London, given they definitely don’t want to drop from race for positions that lead to the Champions League.
