Tottenham vs Wolves: Preview and Prediction

Tottenham Hotspur take on Wolves in the Premier League this weekend and they will look to continue their push for Champions League qualification with a win at home.

They are coming into this game on the back of three wins from their last five league matches and the home fans will be expecting a strong performance here. Tottenham are fourth in the league table and they cannot afford to drop points at this crucial stage of the season.

Wolves are 11th in the league table and they have been quite mediocre in their recent outings. They have picked up just one win from the last four league matches and they will need to bounce back strongly. They have recently picked up a win over Chelsea and it remains to be seen whether they can pull off an upset against Tottenham.

Team news and tactics


Tottenham Hotspur will be without the services of Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, Destiny Udogie and Pedro Porro because of injuries. The two full backs are expected to return in the next match while the likes of Solomon and Sessegnon are sidelined for a few weeks.

Spurs are expected to start in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Guglielmo Vicario in goal.

Radu Dragusin could be handed a start here in the absence of the two full backs. The former Genoa man could start as the right back here with Emerson Royal on the left. The two players will be expected to help out defensively and provide an outlet during counter attacks.

Cristian Romero will start alongside Micky van de Ven in the central defensive role.

In the midfield pivot, Pape Matar Sarr will start alongside Yves Bissouma. The two players will look to break up opposition attacks and win the ball back for Tottenham.

James Maddison will continue in his attacking midfield role and he will look to create goal scoring opportunities with his vision, passing and link up play in the final third.

Dejan Kulusevski and Son Heung-min will start in the wide areas. The two players will look to add creativity, goals and flair. Richarlison will lead the line for Tottenham.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Dragusin, Romero, Van de Ven, Royal; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison


The visitors are without Matheus Cunha who suffered a serious hamstring injury against Brentford. The visitors will start in a 3-4-2-1 formation with Jose Sa in goal.

In the back three, Max Kilman will start alongside Craig Dawson and Toti.

Nelson Semedo and Ryan Ait-Nouri will start as the wingbacks. They will look to help out defensively and contribute to the offensive phase of the game as well.

Mario Lemina will start alongside Joao Gomes in central midfield. They will look to add creativity and drive to the side.

Pedro Neto and Pablo Sarabia will operate as the wide players here and they will look to drift inside as the attacking midfielders from time to time. Hwang Hee-Chan will lead the line for Wolves.

Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Sa; Kilman, Dawson, Toti; Semedo, Lemina, Gomes, Ait-Nouri; Neto, Sarabia; Hee-Chan

Apart from his ability to score goals, the Brazilian will help out creatively with his link up play. He is our key man to watch out for.


Tottenham 2-1 Wolves

Wolves are no pushovers and they will look to make life difficult for the home team. However, Tottenham have enough quality in their side to grind out all three points here.

Players like Richarlison are in impressive form and Tottenham will certainly head into this game as the favourites.

Despite the injury problems at the back, they have enough quality to emerge victorious here. A narrow win for the home side is on the cards this week.
