Tottenham Hotspur had the chance to move into the top four in the Premier League in mid-week. They spurred that opportunity, and will now be looking for a victory on Sunday to move within a point of West Ham United.
Premier League Preview
Antonio Conte’s bright start at Tottenham Hotspur is threatening to come unstuck, as Spurs have lost their last two goals. They still have the added advantage of having games in hand over their rivals above them in the standings, but their position in the race for Champions League places could have been much stronger.
Tottenham only had themselves to blame in mid-week, as they threw away a 1-0 lead before losing 3-2 at home to Southampton. Heung Min-Son put Spurs ahead for the second time in the game after 70 minutes, but two goals in the final ten minutes meant that the Saints were able to take the points.
Conte would have certainly been most disappointed at how his side defended balls coming into the box, with both of Southampton’s goals in the space of two minutes were free-headers. They can ill-afford to make the same mistakes against Wolves.
It has been an excellent season to this point for Wolves, as they sit eighth in the Premier League. Bruno Lage has certainly made the team from the Midlands much more of an attacking threat, as they predominantly play on the front-foot as opposed to a defensive style of play that was adopted in previous years.
Wolves saw their three-game winning run ended in mid-week, as they were beaten by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. It was a huge win for the Gunners, and now means that a place in the top-four looks an unlikely target for Wolves. However, they could move up to seventh with a victory this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolves Head to Head

Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolves Prediction
This is a huge match in the context of the seasons for both sides. However, we very much like the chances of Wolves this weekend, as they have been able to get fine results on the road against the top teams this season. We can see their counter-attacking style of play hurting Spurs, as the travelling side take the points.
