Wolves v Spurs Match Preview
Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham will be looking to return to the summit of the Premier League table with a win at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.
Tottenham Hotspur will be making the trip to Molineux to face Gary O’Neil’s Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday. The Lilywhites have been in outstanding form this season with 8 wins, 2 draws and just a single defeat from their opening 11 matches – they only lost their unbeaten record after being defeated by Chelsea in their most recent game in the league.
As a result of Spurs’ start, they have accumulated 26 points and are in 2nd place, with only a point separating themselves and current Premier League leaders Manchester City. Ange Postecoglou’s team are still 2 points ahead of Liverpool and North London rivals Arsenal, who sit in third and fourth place respectively.
Three points in the West Midlands on Saturday would not only return them to the top of the table, but it would also further strengthen their hopes of securing a return to European Football after they had to settle for 8th place, missing out on Europe last season.
