Match Thread: Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolves
Two great clubs
March 1 2020
Wolves make their first visit to the new Tottenham Hotspur stadiuum today, seeking to repeat their triumph over the North London club achieved at Wembley last season, and in the knowledge that three points could potentially lift the club into fifth place in the Premier League.
There is perhaps no better time to play Spurs than at the moment, due to the fact that two main elements of their strikeforce are out injured - Harry Kane and Heung Min Son. However Wolves Coach Nuno Espirito Santo will no doubt still be concentrating on the threat that the remainder of his former manager Jose Mourinho's team present.
Wolves defender Jonny Otto Castro is likely to still be absent today after suffering an injury at the end of the Norwich game, but no other injuries have been declared.
The game kicks off at 2pm and our referee will be Stuart Atwell

Crappy stream so far!!
Spurs 2 Wolves 1
This is a good competition with good play by both sides. Wolves have created several chances but lacked cutting edge at times. Spurs always look dangerous and some last ditch defending had been needed to keep them out. Auriers's goal was opportunistic and unpredictable. We now need to do to them what they did to us at Molineux!!
Spurs 2 Wolves 1
Essentially two overlaps in our left back position and Spurs score twice.
We’re not out of it by any means but not a classic performance so far
Traore doesn’t seem to be fully on his game at present so I hope that he steps it up in the second half or bring Podence on.
It’s a game of two halves so not over yet.
Spurs 2 Wolves 2
Jota sets up Raul and he takes it!!!!
Spurs 2 Wolves 3

Only slight negatives were that Traore and Boly seemed off their game a little and Moutinho played some uncharacteristic loose balls. On the other side of the coin, Coady was m.o.m for me, Saiss was pretty solid, Doherty and Jota did well.
The character to come from a goal behind twice away from home against a good team is encouraging and a fantastic third goal.
Three points off fourth now and, this will probably come back to kick me in the sack, but four winnable matches coming up.
Once again we fall behind, twice today, but continue to have the guts and character to come back ....... typifying this season.
6th it is .... on goal difference, 4th place within 3 points. Who would have thought it. 42 from 28, I think we can say we won’t go down!!! 😂👍🐺
Wolves have won 35 points from losing positions in the Premier League since the start of last season, at least six more than any other side during this period.
Wolves have both scored and conceded in 20 different Premier League games this season (W6 D9 L5), a competition high.
Since the start of last season, Matt Doherty has netted eight Premier League goals for Wolves, the joint most of all defenders in the competition alongside Liverpool skipper Virgil Van Dijk.
Raul Jimenez's 13 Premier League goals this season have been worth 16 points to Wolves, the joint most alongside Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Get used to it!!!!!!
