WOLF – TOTTENHAM STREAM LIVE
Nuno Espirito Santo, who played for Jose Mourinho at FC Porto, has to dig his Wolves out of a tough spot after suffering two defeats from Aston Villa and Burnley in the last three.
As for Mourinho, his team from Tottenham is also in decline as they have lost head-to-head games against Liverpool and Leicester City and without a win in three Premier League appearances. That said, they have reached the semi-finals of the League Cup where they will face second division side Brentford at home to qualify for the finals at Wembley.

The Wolves are without a star, striker Raul Jimenez, who is continuing his return from surgery on a broken skull, while Leander Dendoncker is also out.
Tottenham could be without Gareth Bale who came out at half time in a League Cup win in Stoke after scoring a goal. Bale has problems with his calf, while Gio Lo Celso struggles with knocking and Japhet Tanganga is out with a shoulder injury. Eric Lamela returned due to injury against Stoke.
What are they saying
Nuno Espirito Santo in the January transfer window: “The transition period is coming, and we are getting ready because we have to rebalance our team.”
Jose Mourinho on winning the Spurs League Cup in Stoke: “But I believe the boys did well. Erik Lamela, Moussa Sissoko, when they came in, they gave us a little more intensity, a little more dynamic both with the ball and without the ball we pressed much faster and a lot more, so the second goal came and the third goal killed the game, so the job is done. “
Odds and ends (full odds are provided by our partner, PointsBet)
The Wolves (+255) are outsiders (not a play on words), but they did pretty well against Tottenham in recent meetings. The Spurs (+112) are small favorites and it will be interesting to see how they can react after some negative results. Drawing at +220 seems tempting.

I will sit firmly on the fence and draw a draw. The fact that the Spurs have a few days less rest than the Wolves due to their League Cup quarterfinals makes a difference at this time of year. Vuk’s trio Podence, Neto and Traore will create problems for the Spurs. Wolves 1-1 Tottenham.
