Where: Molineux, Wolverhampton, EnglandWhen: Saturday, November 11, 1:30 pm CET
The Wolves are hosting Tottenham in the opening game of the round. Both teams are coming off painful defeats from the previous round, with Wolves on the road against the worst team in the Premiership, Sheffield, while Tottenham lost at home to Chelsea in a controversial event. Therefore, the pressure on both units is very high. Wolves need to take three points to keep up with the teams from the upper part of the standings, while Tottenham has to do the same, only they need it to stay in the title race.
Wolves vs. Tottenham Preview
After four games in a row without a defeat, Wolves suffered a shocker at Bramall Lane, losing to Sheffield United, 2-1. That was the first victory for the Blades this year, something which will stay remembered for a long time.
The Wolves’ defense can’t get a grip on the situation, allowing at least one goal in the previous nine games and causing too much trouble for the manager, Julen Lopetegui. In all those meetings, Wolves have scored as well, but the results were mixed in the end.
This unit plays efficient games, with eight of the past ten ending with over 2.5 hits. As stated before, the offense is potent, but the defense is poor.
The first loss of the year took place against Chelsea on Monday night. The final result was 1-4, yet that won’t be remembered that much. Officiating is something that will be at the center of attention here, with the Spurs having two players sent off.
Even with nine guys on the field, the hosts looked competitive, but as time went by, Chelsea stabilized and began exploiting the entire situation and netting in the final phase of the game. This failure pushed the Spurs down to the second place in the EPL standings, with City taking over the wheel again.
Tottenham usually plays interesting and efficient events away from home. On six Premiership road trips, we’ve seen them net at least two goals in all the games but against Luton, where they triumphed 0-1.

Wolves vs. Tottenham Head to Head Games
Both games last year didn’t bring too much excitement, with only one goal involved in each. The first was at the Tottenham stadium, where the hosts triumphed, 1-0. The second saw the same result; only the Wolves were on the winning side.
Wolves vs. Tottenham Predictions
Wolves don’t know how to defend and stay safe. We’ve stated already that the defense is the main weakness of this unit. Meanwhile, Tottenham’s back line will be weakened without two players who received red cards against Chelsea, so this game should bring high efficiency, that is, over 2.5 hits.
Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
