Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers prediction, preview, team news and more


Tottenham Hotspur’s next Premier League assignment comes in the form of Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are set to travel to North London on May 16 for a mouth-watering clash.

As Spurs look to tighten their grip on a European spot, interim boss Ryan Mason will set his sights on as many wins in the last three matches. Everton are lurking, as they are only behind Spurs on goal difference.

A combative Leeds United attack proved too good for Tottenham in their last game, leaving wider holes in their defense with a 3-1 victory that was characterized by pacy, sharp attacking.

Meanwhile, Wolves reminded us of the team that took the Premier League by storm after promotion in their come-from-behind 2-1 win against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Nuno Espirito Santo has played a relatively young squad of late, perhaps as an audition for players ahead of next season. But if they can hunt as a pack and show similar levels of intensity as they did last time out, Wolves can upset an indifferent Spurs.

Spurs look largely disorganized at the back, while there’s a lack of order and structure in the way they have gone about their business under the new coach. One gets the feeling Wolves can bag their second win in as many visits to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
