Wolves vs. Tottenham Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
Wolves vs. Tottenham
After a stunning defeat that ended their unbeaten run in the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur is determined to conclude the pre-international break period positively. Their next challenge comes in the form of a clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux for the Saturday lunchtime kickoff.
In Monday’s match, Ange Postecoglou’s squad, reduced to nine players, suffered a resounding 4-1 loss against London rivals Chelsea. Meanwhile, their upcoming opponents, Wolverhampton Wanderers, experienced a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United, marked by another VAR decision sparking controversy.
In another weekend marred by controversies for the PGMOL, Wolves manager Gary O’Neil found himself on the receiving end of yet another contentious decision that went against his team at Bramall Lane. This unfortunate turn of events unfolded as newly-promoted Sheffield United secured their inaugural top-flight victory of the season on their 11th attempt.
Wolves vs. Tottenham
Wolves seemed poised to secure a draw with an 89th-minute goal from Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, responding to Cameron Archer’s earlier piledriver that had broken the deadlock. However, with the clock ticking past 100 minutes, Oliver Norwood converted from 12 yards out. This penalty came after Fabio Silva was deemed to have fouled George Baldock.
As Bramall Lane celebrated a long-awaited maximum, Gary O’Neil didn’t hold back his frustration towards the officials on yet another agonizing afternoon. He expressed his belief that the footballing landscape, particularly with VAR, is in a “crazy place.” O’Neil also suggested that Baldock may have strategically drawn the foul leading to the dramatic late penalty for the Blades.
what to remember – Wolves vs. Tottenham
While some commended Tottenham and Postecoglou for their bold approach against Chelsea, deploying a high defensive line, others criticized the Australian manager as Jackson scored three times in the final 20 minutes. Nevertheless, it’s evident that the Spurs boss is unwavering in his commitment to such tactics, regardless of the available personnel.
Even with only nine players on the field, Tottenham managed to create opportunities on Monday. Considering Wolves’ recent trend of both scoring and conceding goals, it’s conceivable that Saturday’s lunchtime clash might unfold as an engaging draw.
