2023-24 Premier League: Week 12 – Wolves vs Tottenham

Title chasing Tottenham Hotspur look to rebound from their first loss of the season away to Wolves at Molineux.

Victory could put Wolves as high as 11th ahead of the mid-afternoon kick-offs, whilst Tottenham can go top with a win until Sunday teatime.

Wolves have no fresh injury concerns to report after their defeat at Sheffield United.

Joseph Hodge (shoulder), Hugo Bueno and Pedro Neto (both hamstring) remain absent.

Tottenham will be without Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie after the pair were sent off in an ill-tempered defeat to Chelsea.

Mickey van de Ven (hamstring) and James Maddison (ankle) were injured during that match, and will both be sidelined for this match as will Richarlison who was an unused substitute with a groin injury.

Ben Davies (knock) is a doubt but Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring), Manor Solomon (knee), Ivan Perisic (ACL) and Alfie Whiteman (ankle) remain ruled out.


When is Kick-Off?

Wolves host Tottenham at Molineux in a 12:30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday 11 November, live on TNT Sport 1 in the UK.


Stat Attack

  • Wolves have won two of their last five league meetings against Tottenham (W2, L3).
  • Tottenham have claimed 13 points in their last six league visits to Wolves (W4, D1, L1).
  • Last season saw the team playing at home in this fixture win by 1-0 results.
  • Wolves haven’t picked up the first booking in any of their five league matches at home this season.
  • Son Heung-min has scored six goals in three of his last four away appearances for Tottenham.



Despite missing Neto’s presence in last weekend’s loss at Sheffield Utd, Wolves should take confidence from how well they played in terms of attacking play despite a lacklustre end product, whilst they were unlucky with the inconsistenct mess that is VAR at the end to lose the game.

Tottenham meanwhile should be totally fired up for this clash after their own fiasco with VAR and atrocious refereeing in their loss to Chelsea, where they simply lost discipline once ahead but full credit for trying a high line even when down to nine men.

Romero, van de Ven, Udogie and Maddison though will all be huge losses for this game and unless Ange Postecoglou can cook up a tactical corker, I don’t see Spurs winning this game but a draw might be their realistic option if can regroup and channel their frustrations wisely.

Prediction: Wolves 1-1 Tottenham

Result: Wolves 2-1 Tottenham
