Latest performances in all competitions
On Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur will look to claim a vital three points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when they host Bruno Lage’s Wolves.
Antonio Conte’s side come into this tie on the back of a disappointing 3-2 home loss to Southampton in their last game. Despite taking the lead through an own-goal from Jann Bednarek, Spurs still lost to the Saints thanks to goals from Serbian striker Armado Broja, Mohammed Elyounoussi and Che Adams.
The results leave them trailing fourth-placed West Ham by four points, albeit with three games in hand. They remain in pole position to finish inside the top four remains high, but they must address the inconsistency that is threatening to wreck what has been a good start by Antonio Conte.
The London side have come a long way since Conte took over with bouts of coronavirus and injuries, limiting the team from reaching their full potential under the Italian tactician.
Meanwhile, they have lost just three of their 11 home league games this season. And with such an impressive home record, they will be hoping to get their season back on track against Wolves.
Thankfully, Conte can count on Korean talisman Son Heung-min, who returned to action against Southampton with a goal and has scored five goals in his last five home games for Spurs.
Possible Tottenham starting line-up
Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal , Harry Winks, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Sergio Reguilon; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.
Injured: Oliver Skipp
Doubtful: Eric Dier, Japeth Tanganga
Wolves run of five games without a loss was halted by Arsenal in midweek, with the Gunners claiming maximum points courtesy of a solitary goal from defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
The loss has left them rooted in the middle of the table in the eighth position, four points above Brighton and six points from the top four.
Bruno Lage’s wards will be hoping to take maximum points against a Spurs side who haven’t been solid defensively and whose last clean sheet came against Watford on the first of January.
But having loaned out Adama Traore to Barcelona, Bruno Lage is lacking in creativity in the final third. However, youngster Fransisco Trincao also on loan from Barcelona, looks ready to solve that problem as he put in an excellent performance against Spurs alongside fellow countryman Daniel Podence. As such, the situation doesn’t really seem bleak.
With a place in Europe up for grabs, the visitors will come into this tie desperate for a win to increase their chances of a top-seven finish. A win in this game will be enough to push them ahead of Spurs and higher up the European football spots.
Possible Wolves starting line-up
Jose Sa; Max Kilman, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss, Nelson Semedo; Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker, Joao Moutinho, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence.
Injured: Hee-Chan Hwang, Willy Boly, Pedro Neto, Yerson Mosquera
Tottenham 1-1 Wolves
