Wolves v Tottenham (1945 GMT, Sky Sports Premier League)

Two sides hoping to bounce back from defeat last time out as we have Saturday Night Football to look forward to.

Tottenham were beaten 1-0 in a dominating performance from Man City at Wembley on Monday, while Wolves have lost two on the bounce after most recently going down at Brighton and Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to avoid making it three in a row.

The Sky Bet Championship winners have unsurprisingly settled into the top flight, sitting in 10th position after as many games and they have fared well against some of the 'big six' so far, holding Manchester City and Manchester United to draws, while they face Spurs and then Arsenal in their next two fixtures.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have had their best ever start to a Premier League season, despite making precisely zero new additions and their existing players returning for the season fatigued after the World Cup.

They faced a tough fixture list this week, playing West Ham in the Carabao Cup 48 hours after the Man City clash, with goals from Heung-min Son (two) and Fernando Llorente giving them a 3-1 win at the London Stadium. It allowed a number of their fringe players a run out, along with Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen who have recently had fitness problems.


Betting guide

Prediction: Wolves 1-1 Tottenham (Sky Bet odds: 5/1)
Wolves have lost two on the spin but they usually show up in the big games and perhaps a bit of complacency had crept in after a fantastic start. This should be a good game with plenty of good football but perhaps not so many goals and preference is for a draw.

Best bet: Draw at 5/2
Wolves will be desperate not to lose a third game in a row and so far this season they've been much better against the bigger sides, so they should be formidable opposition. Spurs have had a tough week but are still a quality outfit so putting all those factors together leads to the draw being a likely outcome.

Goals: Christian Eriksen anytime scorer at 7/2
Eriksen is a vital cog in the Spurs machine and now getting back to fitness Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to get him back into Premier League action, so don't be surprised if he pops up with a goal.

RequestABet: Draw, under 2.5 goals, 10+ match corners, 40+ match bookings
There should be decent entertainment in this game as both sides like to pay football and attack - Wolves don't score too many goals though so they'll need to keep it tight but corners are virtually guaranteed and there's enough on the line for the yellow card to appear.

  • Wolves are winless in their last four Premier League meetings with Tottenham (D2 L2) since winning both games against them in the 2009-10 season.
  • Tottenham have won four of their last six top-flight games against Wolves at Molineux (D1 L1).
  • This will be the fourth Premier League game kicking off at this time slot on a Saturday, after Southampton 4-0 Arsenal (26/12/2015), Leicester 2-2 Man Utd (23/12/2017) and Tottenham 1-3 Man City (14/04/2018).
  • Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 38 Premier League games against promoted sides (W35 D3). Wolves were the last promoted side to beat Spurs twice in the same season (2009-10).
  • Wolves have failed to score in their last two league games – they have never failed to score in three consecutive league matches under Nuno Espirito Santo.
