Michael Owen on who will come out on top between Spurs and Wolves

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes that Tottenham Hotspur will find it difficult to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley tomorrow.

Spurs have enjoyed a prolific spell in front of goal recently having scored eleven goals in their last two Premier League matches against Everton and Bournemouth.

While Tottenham are currently going about their business quietly in trying to chase down Liverpool’s six point advantage at the top of the Premier League table, Jurgen Klopp’s side face tough matches against Arsenal and Manchester City which could see Spurs further chip away at the gap.

However, Owen believes that Tottenham will find it more difficult to break down a resolute Wolves side and will scrape a win with a narrow goal advantage.

Wolves are unbeaten in Premier League games in London this season (W2 D2). Indeed, they’ve won three of their last six Premier League games in the capital (D2 L1), more than they had in their first 18 such games in the competition (W2 D4 L12).

Owen told BetVictor: “Spurs have scored 11 times in their two games over the Festive period, but I feel they will find Wolves a tough nut to crack at Wembley.

“Spurs are without a draw in their first 19 PL games of the season and, if they are to mount a realistic title challenge, they need to pick up maximum points.

“Prediction: Spurs to win 1-0.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Against Wolves, we need to be on the front foot once the whistle blows and we cannot afford to start slowly. I hope the Spurs players treat this game as important as any cup final or treat it as a NLB and give much respect to the Wolves players. They are not minors and if we are not careful, we will be punished by them. All our players must pull up their socks, fight as hard as possible for a win. My concern is are we able to break open their defence for the first half an hour? If they are going to park their bus and put 10 men behind the ball, how are we going to tackle it? Wolves proof that they are no pushovers when we played them at the Molineux. Our defence need to pay double attention to their attacking players. COYS!!! We believe in you! Show us your fighting spirit and never give up mentality!
