‘Tottenham will concede’ – Chris Sutton predicts the score for Wolves clash 

Chris Sutton has admitted that he has been impressed by how Tottenham seem to be able to find a way to get over the line in matches, backing Ange Postecoglou’s men to overcome Wolves relatively comfortably on Saturday.

While the race for Champions League qualification appears to be getting quite tight, with Aston Villa and Manchester United breathing down Tottenham’s necks, the Lilywhites potentially have their eye on a much bigger prize.

This was admitted by Postecoglou himself last week, with the Australian stating that his side will look to chase down the teams above them until it is mathematically impossible to do so (Football.London).

Something similar was suggested by Son Heung-min after Spurs’ win over Brighton, with the South Korean telling NBC Sports that he and his teammates are dreaming of achieving ‘something special’ this season.

If Tottenham are to do the impossible and chase down the likes of Man City and Liverpool, these are the sort of games that will be looking at as a must-win, with Wolves coming into the clash relatively low on confidence after losing two of their last three league matches.

Tottenham are expected to beat Wolves this weekend

Sutton believes that the relentless of Tottenham’s attacking play would be difficult for Gary O’Neil’s men to cope with.

The former Celtic striker told BBC Sport: “Wolves won the reverse of this fixture in November with two goals in stoppage time but I can see Tottenham getting their revenge here.

“I was right last week with my hunch that Spurs were going to beat Brighton, although my guest – the actor Stephen Moyer – did even better and got the 2-1 scoreline spot on.

“Spurs just find a way, don’t they, with ‘Ange-ball’? They never stop coming forward, which is why they keep scoring goals. Son Heung-min is back from the Asian Cup and he will start this week.

“Tottenham will concede, even with Wolves forward Matheus Cunha out injured, but they are just relentless in attack, and they are going to give someone such a hiding soon.”

Prediction: 3-1 to Tottenham

Spurs Web Opinion

Postecoglou would have not been happy with the lacklustre start that his side made against the Seagulls last week. He will demand that the players come flying out of the blocks, press Wolves from the front and put them under pressure from minute one of the game.
