Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has insisted that Spurs have to somehow find a way to get all three points in the all-important clash against Wolves tomorrow afternoon.
Wolves come into the game just a point below the Lilywhites and the result might have a major impact on the race for Champions League qualification.
The 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge yo Chelsea last weekend was a big blow to Tottenham’s hopes of a top-four finish but a win tomorrow could bring Jose Mourinho’s side right back into the race.
Spurs come into the game as the fresher side with their opponents having been in Europa League action against Espanyol on Thursday night.
Although Nuno Espírito Santo rotated his squad for the clash, he chose not to leave any of his regulars back in England, opting to travel to Spain with his entire squad (Daily Mail).
Berbatov believes Spurs must make their additional rest count whilst insisting that the result is more important than the performance.
Speaking to The Metro, the Bulgarian said: “Spurs need to win this one, after losing to Chelsea last week, but it won’t be easy against one of the strongest attacking sides in the Premier League.
“Spurs should be the fresher side after Wolves’ Europa League trip to Espanyol on Thursday night.
“Jose Mourinho needs to get his players pumped up for this match because the only important thing for them is that they get the three points. It doesn’t really matter how they do it.”
Spurs Web Opinion
The clash on Sunday will certainly be interesting as both Wolves and Spurs are arguably more threatening when the opposition has the ball and so neither side will be too fussed about keeping possession. It will be interesting to see if Jose decides to match up Wolves’ system as he did against Chelsea last weekend.
