Tottenham Hotspur were up against it in their most recent Premier League clash against Chelsea last weekend, a game that they eventually lost 2-1.
Spurs not only came into the match with key injuries to Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Moussa Sissoko, but they were also far from well-rested.
The Lilywhites had played a big Champions League match against RB Leipzig just three days before the Chelsea game. In fact, Tottenham played at 20:00 on Wednesday and 12:30 on Saturday.
In comparison, Chelsea were last in action on the Monday in a match against Man United, giving them an extra two/three days to rest and prepare tactically.
This week, it is Tottenham who have the advantage over their rivals as they are scheduled to play Wolves in the Premier League.
While Spurs have over a week to prepare for the match, Wolves are in action just three days before in the Europa League against Espanyol, and an away match at that.
Of course, Wolves are 4-0 up in the Europa League tie, but they may still take some first-team players with them to Spain in order to see the match out.
Tottenham will be looking to take advantage of that fact, just as Chelsea did with them last week, as their legs should be far fresher, in theory.
