Wolves to stand firm in North London

Tottenham Hotspur will be aiming to build on the promising start that they have made when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Wolves have picked up one point so far, losing at Leeds United in the opening game and then drawing 0-0 at home to newly promoted Fulham, and relying on an Aleksandar Mitrovic missed penalty to get up and running for the campaign.

Spurs drew 2-2 at Chelsea, in a fiery encounter, following their impressive 4-1 win over Southampton in their first game.

Wolves have not had the most inspiring transfer window and Raul Jimenez remains out through injury, it will be interesting to see how Bruno Lage utilises his squad after a slow start and a disappointing end to last term.

Process

Spurs have been very clinical so far, netting six times from just 3.6 expected goals (xG) for, with some poor defending from the Saints contributing to the winning margin last time out.

Tottenham equalised twice with some unconventional goals at Chelsea at the weekend, but in the end will reflect on a very good point, with Harry Kane stepping up in a vital moment as he has done so many times over the years.

Wolves have scored just once so far, from 2.3 xGF, coming very early on in their defeat at Leeds United.

They have been fairly porous defensively, and will not be able to rely on Jose Sa to the extent that they did last season.

Lage may set up the visitors to spoil the game in North London, and playing on the counter-attack with the likes of Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto threats on the break, Adama Traore will also be in the squad could be a worthwhile tactic.

For that reason and unders play appeals, with Spurs too short to back outright.

Team news

Clement Lenglet and Oliver Skipp are sidelined for Spurs, while Chiquinho and Jimenez will miss out for the visitors, with Joao Moutinho doubtful.

It will be interesting to see how the newly formed central defensive partnership of Nathan Collins and Max Kilman deals with Spurs’ attacking talent.

It goes without saying how impressive Dejan Kulusevski has been since arriving in January, providing a significant goal threat alongside Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane.

Spurs are rightful favourites but I do not want to get involved with them at such a short price.
