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.”
