English Premier League – Round 36
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers – 16th May
Bagging the Champs of the North
Despite an upsetting win against Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur has maintained its stance as a force to be reckoned with. Thus far in the game, they have faced each of the top six and recorded a win against Arsenal, a draw against Liverpool, and several other phenomenal games with a total of sixteen wins, eight draws, and eleven losses.
Each of these games had its own highlights and holds importance for several reasons, but the Spurs will not be satisfied with their season until they secure a standing among the top. They still have a chance to do that if they successfully manage to beat their London rivals – Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Predicted Line-Up: Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Sergio Reguilón, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Lo Celso, Pierre Emile Højbjerg, Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min, Dele Alli, Harry Kane.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, or Wolves, have earned plaudits this season for their fearless, high-tempo attacking play, but in shutting out Chelsea at Molineux they also demonstrated the sort of defensive qualities that will be essential in a match of such magnitude.
That comes in as being especially important when you take into consideration the fact that they have successfully managed to hold the game against Tottenham Hotspur in three of the last six games played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Predicted Line-Up: Rui Patrício, Ki-Jana Hoever, Conor Coady, Maximilian Kilman, Rayan Aït-Nouri, Rúben Neves, João Moutinho, Adama Traoré, Morgan Gibbs-White, Daniel Podence, Fábio Silva
The match is scheduled to be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the new home stadium for Tottenham Hotspur after the beloved White Hart Lane. Thus far, Tottenham Hotspur has played eighteen games at home and has won nine of them this season. What is interesting to note is that the Spurs has lost three of the last six home games played against Wolves.
A 1-1 draw resulted from the last game Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers played together. Ever since, both teams have been meritorious of banter. They have kept their stand against rivals and given fierce performances every so often.
