Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on the top four with a win when they take on Wolves at Molineux this evening. 

Spurs saw their title challenge derailed after losing 1-0 to Manchester City at Wembley last Monday night which has left them sitting fifth in the Premier League table and five points adrift of the leaders after ten games played.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win at West Ham on Wednesday night to book their place in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup and they’ll be looking to take advantage of two of their main rivals playing each other this evening.

Fourth placed Arsenal – who sit just one point above Tottenham – entertain second placed Liverpool in today’s 5.30pm kick-off so Spurs can climb in to the top four with a win at Wolves if the Gunners fail to collect all three points at the Emirates.

However, Tottenham will face a resolute Wolves outfit who’ve made a solid start to life back in the top flight with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side sitting tenth in the table having picked up 15 points so far.

Team news

Spurs will be without Eric Dier as the midfielder has been ruled out for the next two weeks with a thigh injury that he sustained against Man City while Danny Rose is also still missing with an on-going groin problem.

Centre-back Jan Vertonghen isn’t due to recover from his hamstring injury until December while midfielder Victor Wanyama has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with a knee injury.

However, Dele Alli made a successful return to the starting eleven in midweek after recovering from a hamstring injury – although Pochettino may not risk him from the start again tonight.

Wolves will hand a late fitness test to Diogo Jota as he’s carrying a minor knock but otherwise they have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Predicted Score

Wolves 0-1 Tottenham: The hosts have proven to be extremely difficult to beat this season as they’ve conceded just 9 goals so far – which is the fifth best record in the division – so this will be a tough game for Spurs. However, the north Londoners have a superb record against promoted sides as they’ve not lost in their last 38 meetings and I don’t see that run ending today. I’m going for a narrow away win.
