Another week of Premier League action means another week of Mark Lawrenson’s weekly predictions column.
The BBC pundit has delivered his verdict on how he thinks Wolves will get on against Tottenham tomorrow.
Bruno Lage’s first competitive home match in charge is a visit from his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo.
Mark Lawrenson’s Wolves vs Tottenham prediction
Spurs come into this game on the back of beating champions Manchester City on the opening weekend of the season.
But then a much-changed side suffered an embarrassing 1-0 Europa Conference League loss against Pacos de Ferrera on Thursday.
“This is a very early return to Molineux for Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo, and I think his old team will cause his new one a few problems.
“Wolves lost at Leicester last time out, but I thought they played OK and they created a few chances. The big news was Raul Jimenez’s return after serious injury, which was great to see.
“Spurs got a brilliant win against Manchester City but let’s see how they follow that up. This game is a very different test which will tell us a lot about where they are at. 1-1.”
If Wolves start like they did last week against Leicester, it’ll be a tough afternoon.
If they replicate their second half performance from the King Power Stadium for the whole 90 minutes, they’ve got every chance of getting a result.
Being more clinical will be crucial though, and if Adama Traore gets his shooting boots on, Wolves could be in business.
