Spurs’ campaign this season will be decided in the last three games, and so will Ryan Mason’s future. They are expected to secure a win in the last three games and hope their rivals stumble. With only two points away from West Ham on the fifth, it seems still very likely for Harry Kane and Co to snatch one place in Europa League.
The teams’ previous matches
Tottenham has been really struggling to stay consistent this season. Last weekend, they suffered another loss while travelling to Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa’s men hit them hard and smashed them 3-1. Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo Moreno brought a nightmare towards their defence while Spurs could only reply once through Son Heung-min.
The caretaker Ryan Mason will stick to 4-2-3-1 formation with Harry Kane leading the attack supported by Delle Alli or Erik Lamela behind him. On both flanks, Gareth Bale and Son Heung-min, will be operating the area. Only Ben Davies is ruled out for this fixture.
Meanwhile, Nuno Santo is likely to deploy the similar formation. However, several key men are still on the sideline such as Pedro Neto, Johnny, Marcal, Willy Boly beside Raul Jimenez. Therefore, Adama Traore, William Jose and Ruben Neves will be the vital figure in the attacking build-up. Morgan Gibbs-white shall continue occupying the attacking midfield role.
Players to watch
The skipper Harry Kane remains the most dangerous figure in Spurs this season by contributing 21 goals and 13 assists. Another notable name to watch is surely Gareth Bale who has netted nine goals and provided two assists since his return to Tottenham.
In Wolves, the La Masia graduate, Adama Traore is one of their top perforners although he has only bagged two goals and made two assists. Another vital figure to focus on is Daniel Podence with three goals and two assists.
Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Prediction
Spurs will be facing a tough opponent here although Nuno Santo’s men are sitting in the mid lower table. Yet, their continental target shall push them to bounce back from their loss in Leeds. Ryan Mason’s side could still secure a narrow win here.
