Premier League: Wolves vs Tottenham Preview

7th placed Wolves holst 8th placed Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham!. Wolves are unbeaten in 11 Premier League (PL) outings (W5, D6) and in a testament to their resilience, every one of those draws saw them net the final match goal. All of the wins, meanwhile, yielded over 1.5 match goals with Wolves getting the first two goals each time, and winning the first half ‘to-nil’ on four occasions. Last season’s corresponding fixture was a five-goal thriller. However, just one of Wolves’ last five PL matches played at Molineux has produced over 2.5 total goals, though 40% of that quintet saw both teams score in the second half. Tottenham have won three of their first four league matches under José Mourinho, with each win producing exactly five goals and seeing Tottenham win the first half to-nil. However, Tottenham’s win-rate as away-day PL favourites is down 38.1% from last term. < p>

STATS:

The ‘Lilywhites’ are, however, amid a run of ten losses in 14 PL away games. A significant 80% of the losses in that run came by just a one-goal margin, with the last two of them seeing the decisive goal against Tottenham arrive from the penalty spot. Stat attack: Wolves’ last three PL home wins have seen them score exactly once in each half.

Players to watch: Diogo Jota’s double at Brighton on the last PL matchday saved a point for Wolves. In turn, two of his three PL goals this term have been the last of a drawn match. Tottenham’s Son-Heung Min scored a genuine FIFA Puskás Award contender in his last league outing (Dec 7). After his opener at West Ham (Nov 23), his last seven PL away goals have all come during victories.
