Stat Attack: Wolves v Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back from Monday night’s Premier League defeat to Manchester City when we travel to newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow evening.

Since the start of the 2014-15 season, Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored 25 Premier League goals against newly promoted sides – six more than any other player.

Wolves are winless in their last four Premier League meetings with Tottenham (D2 L2).

Tottenham have won four of their last six top-flight games against Wolves at Molineux (D1 L1).

This will be the fourth Premier League game kicking off at this timeslot on a Saturday, after Southampton 4-0 Arsenal (26/12/2015), Leicester 2-2 Man Utd (23/12/2017) and Tottenham 1-3 Man City (14/04/2018). 

Wolves were the last promoted side to beat Spurs twice in the same season (2009-10). 

Wolves have failed to score in their last two league games – they have never failed to score in three consecutive league matches under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs have won 71% of their Premier League points this season (15/21) in away matches – only Crystal Palace (75%) and Newcastle United (100%) have a higher percentage. 

Wolves have won none of their last 24 Premier League matches against sides starting the day in the top half of the table (D10 L14) since winning 1-0 against Man Utd in February 2011. 

Tottenham had just four shots in their previous Premier League match against Man City – their fewest in a game under Maurico Pochettino; they last had as few as four in January 2014, also against Man City. 

Despite playing just 250 minutes of Premier League football this season, no player has completed more dribbles than Wolves’ Adama Traore (24) – the only player with as many is Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, who has played 417 more minutes.
