Tottenham have slipped from being top of the league to sixth position after just two losses. After a last-minute Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool a 2-1 win over Spurs, Jose Mourinho's side were outplayed at home by Leicester City, as they lost 2-0.
Questions have been asked of Mourinho's approach to the Leicester game, as Spurs were dominated and were lucky to have only lost that game by two goals. James Maddison even had a goal curiously ruled out by VAR for an offside.
However, in midweek, Tottenham managed to beat Stoke 3-1 to qualify for the semifinal of the Carabao Cup, where they will face Brentford.
As for Wolves, they are searching for consistency. The last time they played at home, they produced a fabulous second-half performance to beat Chelsea 2-1, with Pedro Neto scoring the winner in injury time. However, on Monday, they went to Turf Moor and were second best for large parts of the game, which they eventually lost 2-1.
