Wolves vs Tottenham LIVE! Latest team news, lineups, prediction, TV and Premier League match stream today
Tottenham are looking to get their title challenge back on track when they take on Wolves at Molinuex tonight.
Jose Mourinho’s side enjoyed a terrific start to the season, but have faltered in recent weeks, taking just one point from their last three league games.
Mourinho’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace a fortnight ago and have followed that up with back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Leicester, though they did at least see off Stoke City to reach the Carabao Cup semi-final in midweek.
Wolves, meanwhile, will be looking for some sense of consistency, having followed a terrific win over Chelsea with a disappointing defeat at the hands of Burnley.
Raul Jimenez is expected to be in attendance at Molineux for the first time since his horror head injury, but the game will again be played behind closed doors due to coronavirus restrictions.
Wolves XI: Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Marcal, Joao Moutinho, Neves, Daniel Podence, Traore, Silva, Pedro Neto
Subs: Hoever, Ait Nouri, Vitinha, Ruddy, Perry, Kilman, Otasowie, Corbeanu, Cundle
Tottenham XI: Lloris, Doherty, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Winks, Ndombele, Son, Kane
Subs: Hart, Alderweireld, Rodon, Tanganga, Aurier, Sissoko, Dele, Bergwijn, Lamela
As is the want for Football Twitter, a brief panic among Spurs fans as Kane was not shown on Tottenham’s pre-match arrivals video. He’s at the ground, though. Have no fear.
Liverpool aside, as it stands, results have gone Tottenham’s way over the Xmas break. They can move up to third with victory today, which of course is by no means agiven.
Defeat will leave them in eighth, which is quite the reality check after being leaders for a good few weeks.
TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or Sky Go app.
Predicted Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Sissoko, Hojberg; Begwijn, Ndombele, Son; Kane
Confirmed teams to come in about 45 minutes.
Wolves have lacked cutting edge since the horrific injury suffered by star forward Raul Jimenez, while Spurs have struggled to live up to the high standards they set early in the season.
It is hard to see this being a free-flowing affair and a draw may be the most likely outcome.
Tottenham suffered a significant injury blow this week, with manager Jose Mourinho confirming that midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso is set to be out until the New Year.
The midfielder was injured during Spurs’ defeat at Leicester last weekend and is unlikely to return during the Christmas period.
Gareth Bale is another injury concern for Spurs after the winger asked to be substituted at half time during the 3-1 Carabao Cup win against Stoke on Wednesday, complaining of a calf problem.
Tanguy Ndombele was left out of the Spurs squad for the match, but he will be available for the upcoming games.
