Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur will be aiming to get back to winning ways in the 2020-21 English Premier League season when they meet on Sunday evening.

Wolves fell to a third defeat in four matches, going down 2-1 away to Burnley on Monday evening. The result leaves the West Midlands club in 11th spot on the league standings, 11 points off top spot and 10 points above the relegation zone.

Spurs fell to a second straight defeat, going down 2-0 at home to Leicester City days after suffering a 2-1 loss to league leaders Liverpool. As a result, the North London club ended the round of fixtures in sixth spot, six points behind the Reds.

“I didn’t think either team played very, very well,” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho told the BBC following their loss to the Foxes. “It’s a game where your goalkeeper doesn’t make a single save, but it’s a game that we didn’t play very well.

“We deserved to win the game at Liverpool and that would have made it an amazing week because nobody has done that for a long time – the team was phenomenal at Liverpool. Now if you look at the table everybody is there.”

The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-1 win for Spurs. Lucas Moura opened the scoring before Adama Traore equalised for the hosts but the North London club claimed all three points thanks to a late Jan Vertonghen strike.
