Wolverhampton vs Tottenham Hotspur Football Preview and Predictions 2021

Wolverhampton vs Tottenham Hotspur predictions for Sunday’s Premier League skirmish at Molineux. Wolves look to put their first points on the board when Nuno Espirito Santo returns to Molineux in charge of Spurs. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Six of Wolves’ last nine Premier League games have featured three or more goals.
Tottenham’s two games this term have yielded a total of just two goals.
Wolves have lost their last four league games, with two of those ending 1-0.
Tottenham have won their last two Premier League matches.
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven Premier League meetings between these sides.

Lage era begins in disappointment
Nuno Espirito Santo returns to Molineux just a few months after parting company with Wolves on Sunday and successor Bruno Lage will be hoping for a better afternoon than last weekend, where he watched his side lose 1-0 away to Leicester.

They were quite unfortunate to lose that game but the fact remains that Wolves seem to really struggle going forward. They created 12 chances in that trip to the King Power Stadium but mustered just three shots on target in total, and they have scored only once in their last four league games.

Additionally, with Bruno Lage seemingly adopting the same 3-4-3 system as his predecessor, Santo will know exactly which areas to target when he returns to Molineux with Spurs.

Midweek defeat brings Spurs down to earth
Tottenham got their own campaign off to a fantastic start as they beat reigning champions Manchester City, but they were brought back down to earth in midweek as they lost their Europa Conference League tie with Pacos Ferreira.

In fairness, it was a heavily rotated Tottenham side fielded in Portugal and you can’t read too much into that defeat. Tottenham have won five of their last seven in the league and after last weekend’s result you have to consider them favourites here.

Goal drought expected at Molineux
I’m not expecting a neutral-friendly spectacle, though. Wolves have seen fewer than three goals in six of their last nine league matches and Santo isn’t exactly renowned for his attacking football. There have been just two goals in Tottenham’s two competitive games so far and backing under 2.5 goals on Sunday looks a good choice.

A Spurs win appeals in the correct score market too. Two of Wolves’ last four league games have ended in 1-0 defeats and both of Tottenham’s games this season have yielded that scoreline, albeit with different winners.

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Hoever, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal; Trincao, Traore, Jimenez

Tottenham predicted lineup: Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Hojberg, Skipp, Alli; Moura, Berwijn, Son
