Preview: There wasn’t much to be merry about as both these teams entered Christmas in questionable form. Could it be Tottenham, though, who make amends against Wolves at Molineux – a ground they have now won at on each of their previous three Premier League visits?

Wolves – Nuno Santo ruing absence of Mexican sensation?

A third defeat in four Premier League games condemned Wolves (W6 D2 L6) to spending Christmas in the lower half of the table, becoming only the third side this season to succumb to defeat at the hands of Burnley when losing 2-1 at Turf Moor on Monday. Unlike his managerial counterpart though, Nuno Espirito Santo could find no excuses – other than to blame the officiating – as to why his side were soundly beaten.

Aside from a late penalty, which record signing Fabio Silva confidently dispatched to become the second-youngest goalscorer in the competition’s history, Wolves struggled to impose themselves on resurgent opponents who were nonetheless languishing towards the bottom of the league prior to kick-off. Worryingly this was not for the first time, creating no more than 0.63 xG in two of their past four encounters.

All four said matches were without Raul Jimenez in the team, with the Mexican a huge loss as he continues his recovery from a head injury sustained in last month’s 2-1 victory away to Arsenal. Even more disconcerting has been the lack of clean sheets. So often resolute at the back, Wolves have gone from keeping out four of the first seven opponents faced this season to none of the last seven.

Tottenham – Jose needs solutions, not excuses?

Back-to-back defeats for Tottenham (W7 D4 L3) before the short break for festivities meant a fall from first to sixth in the Premier League standings, and possibly even a fall from grace for a few supporters who allowed themselves to be seduced by talk of a title tilt. They are by no means out of contention, sitting just six shy of the summit, but reality has clearly bitten hard recently even if the manager still seems in denial.

In the view of Jose Mourinho, neither the 2-1 scoreline at Anfield against Liverpool or last Sunday’s 2-0 reverse at home to Leicester were fair outcomes. Even if his team did create four big chances in the first of those, they were dominated from start to finish by the Champions. The defeat to Brendan Rodgers’ side was irrefutable, though, creating only one chance of note in a deserved loss (xG: TOT 0.98 – 1.90 LEI).

A dip in form was to be expected, however, having seen their underlying numbers fall steeply in recent weeks. The bare statistics show Spurs without a win in three (D2 L1) away from home, having won each of their first four such fixtures. They have also gone from netting 15 times across the opening five rounds (3 per game) to scoring 10 in nine subsequent matches in the competition (1.1 per game).

Wolves Vs Tottenham Betting Advice

After going to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season and earning a 3-2 victory, Wolves are seeking successive league victories over Tottenham for the first time since doing the double over them in 2009-10. Their current form, however, is patchy, losing three of the last four in the league but having claimed the scalp of Chelsea last time out at home when Pedro Neto’s late effort completed the comeback from 1-0 down.


Wolves Vs Tottenham – Key Facts:

  • Since securing promotion back to the Premier League in 2018, Wolves have established a 19-game unbeaten record when scoring first at Molineux (W17 D2).
  • From winning each of their first four away Premier League games, scoring 13 times, Spurs have since failed to win the last three (D2 L1), scoring only twice.
  • All four Premier League meetings held since Wolves‘ return to the English top-flight featured both teams scoring as well as at least three goals in the match.


It is now one win from the last five league games – and none from the last three – for Tottenham, falling from first to fifth in the standings. Mourinho’s men have also taken only two points from the last nine away from home (D2 L1), scoring twice. Bearing in mind Wolves have lacked creativity recently, and with all but one of the last six matches here at Molineux going Under 2.5 Goals, a tight encounter seems inevitable.
