With the Christmas turkey done and dusted for another year, Tottenham Hotspur now turn their attention back to the pitch with a tough trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on the cards.
Jose Mourinho’s side have dropped eight points already this month after being held at Crystal Palace and back to back defeats at the hands of Liverpool and Leicester City.
A trip to Molineux against a Wolves side struggling with form is next up for the North Londoners.
Following their 3-2 win at Spurs in the last Premier League meeting between the sides, Wolves are looking to secure back-to-back league wins against them for the first time since the 2009-10 campaign, when they completed a league double over them.
Spurs have won each of their last three Premier League away games against Wolves, netting at least twice each time. Indeed, just one of Spurs’ four Premier League defeats to Wolves has come at Molineux (0-1 in February 2010).
Since their return to the Premier League in 2018, Wolves have won 17 of their 19 Premier League home games when scoring the first goal, drawing the other two.
After winning their first four Premier League away games this season, Spurs are winless in their last three on the road (D2 L1). However, they’re yet to lose consecutive away league games under José Mourinho.
Having netted 15 goals in their first five Premier League games this season (3 per game), Tottenham have netted just 10 in their last nine in the competition (1.1 per game). 20 of their 25 league goals this season (80%) have been scored by either Heung-Min Son (11) or Harry Kane (9).
