1pt Yves Bissouma anytime goalscorer at 14/1 (Sky Bet)
Wolves left South Yorkshire empty handed after Sheffield United’s last gasp winner at the weekend. Ollie Norwood converted from the spot in 90+10th minute to earn the Blades their first Premier League win at the 11th attempt.
The novelty of it was lost on Gary O’Neil, he felt his side had been diddled for the second time in as many games and he did not mince his words in the post match presser.
The Wolves boss could learn some lessons in grace and decorum from the man in the opposite dugout Saturday.
Tottenham’s 4-1 defeat against Chelsea on Monday was pure chaos. The hosts finished two men light and had as many goals chalked off yet Ange Postecoglou was as classy as ever.
I don’t think he has grasped the Barclays spirit yet.
There is the off chance that in James Maddison’s absence through injury, YVES BISSOUMA is pushed into a more advanced role on Saturday.
The midfielder is yet to break his duck this campaign but is averaging an xG per game of 0.10 and based on this alone, the 14/1 about him TO SCORE ANYTIME looks large.
Bissouma has only failed to register a shot in one league game this season, when he was sent off at Kenilworth Road, and has hit two or more in half of his 10 appearances.
With an xG of 0.9 racked up this season, he is due a goal.
The Wolves legs of this bet builder clicked when Wanderers beat Manchester City 2-1 and since that victory they have held Aston Villa, Newcastle and beaten Bournemouth. So, they can do it against possession based teams.
Given Tottenham’s injury woes, it would not be a massive shock to lose their second game in the space of a week.
Score prediction: Wolves 2-1 Tottenham (Sky Bet odds: 9/1)
Pedro Neto is unavailable for the hosts, the hosts will miss his creativity as he has the most Premier League assists. Rayan Ait-Nouri will continue on the left hand side of midfield and Hwang Hee-Chan on the right.
The visitors are sweating on the fitness of Maddison, Spurs creator-in-chief hobbled off in the first half alongside Micky van de Ven. The latter will not make the cut on Saturday and joins a list of eight players unavailable.
Postecoglou has only one fit senior centre back available, Eric Dier, so Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg could slot into the heart of defence flanked by Pedro Porro and Emerson Royal at full back.
Alternatively, Ashley Phillips has been left out of the Tottenham under 23’s squad.
Wolves: Sa; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Toti; Hwang, Lemina, Bellegarde, Ait-Nouri; Cunha, Kalajdzic.
Tottenham: Vicario; Porro, Dier, Hojbjerg, Royal; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Johnson; Son.
