Jones knows how to predict

This is a big period for Jose Mourinho.

To a manager who guarantees results, three consecutive defeats in the league would not exactly suit everyone worried about the Spurs. In fact, it’s something they haven’t experienced in the Premier League since November 2012 when they suffered direct defeats from Wigan, Manchester City and Arsenal.

The Wolves ended Burnley’s typical performance on a wet and windy night at Turf Moore – a match in which Nuno Espirito Santo cleverly diverted attention from the failure of his team’s selection by a rather unnecessary dig by referee Lee Mason. For this one, where a counterattack will be on the menu, Adam Traore will surely be brought back from the start.

It’s always easy to forgive a team for a defeat in Burnley, and in Molineux, the Wolves are still an awkward team for big teams to deal with – as seen when they beat Chelsea in their previous match.

The first goal will undoubtedly shape this match more than usual. It’s too tight to call.

JONES KNOWS FORECASTS: 1-1 (6/1 with Sky Bet)

General statistics

  • After a 3-2 win over the Spurs in the last Premier League meeting between the parties, the Wolves are trying to secure victories against them for the first time since the 2009-10 campaign, when they completed their double league result.
  • The Spurs have won each of the last three Premier League away games against the Wolves, netting at least twice each time. In fact, only one of four Spurs defeats by the Wolves in the Premier League came to Molineux (0-1 in February 2010).
  • Since returning to the Premier League in 2018, the Wolves have won 17 of 19 home games in the Premier League when they scored the first goal, drawing the other two.
  • Tottenham have lost their last two Premier League games, as they have in the previous 22 in the competition (W12 D8). The Spurs have not lost three consecutive league games since November 2012 under André Villas-Boas.
  • After winning the first four away games in the Premier League this season, the Spurs are without a win in the last three away games (D2 L1). However, they have yet to lose consecutive away games under José Mourinho.
  • After scoring 15 goals in their first five Premier League games this season (3 per game), Tottenham have scored just 10 in their last nine games in the competition (1.1 per game). 20 of the 25 league goals this season (80%) were scored by Heung-Min Son (11) or Harry Kane (9).

Review Post Plot: What if Man Utd really clicked? Plus: Arteta’s statistics have been revealed

Manchester United are arguing that they have barely played this season – how good could he be if he really clicks?

In the latest Pitch to Post show in 2020, Jasper Taylor is joined by Gerard Brand and Ben Ransom to discuss Manchester United’s chaotic 6-2 win over Leeds, and whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in fact candidates for the title ( 04:12). As for Leeds, we analyze Marcel Bielsa’s unapologetic style and whether it can last (13:00).

The demolition at Arsenal continues as they are beaten at Everton, and after Mikel Arteta channeled his inner Rafa Benitez with a list of stats, the panel provides some other damn metrics (16:47).

In the Regional Review, Adam Bate discusses West Brom, Aston Villa and the Wolves (32:59), and in the fourth part we watch Tottenham lose to Leicester while Jose Mourinho played in his game to make up for a bad week (42:36).
