TOT vs WOL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Tottenham Hotspur will be looking for their sixth consecutive win in the Premier League when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Wembley Stadium, in London, on Saturday night (IST).
Out of nowhere, and beyond the grasp of any prediction, Tottenham Hotspur are 2nd in the Premier League as things stand. Only six points behind current leaders Liverpool and a point above the reigning English Champions Manchester City.
After losing the bragging rights of the best team in North-London against Arsenal in which they lost 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium at the start of this month, Spurs have won five games on the bounce in the league for the first time this season. And look how a good winning streak can change the scenario for any team in the league.
Unai Emery’s Arsenal leapfrogged Tottenham in the table with that 4-2 resounding win. But in the last five games, the Gunners have drawn two, lost once while winning twice. That’s eight points out of total 15, while Spurs have bagged all that games could offer in the last five games. And the result is – Spurs are seven points better off than their rivals coming into this weekend’s matches.
Mauricio Pochettino is getting all the praise for the upturn in Sours’ form and profile under his managership. And it’s a long time due.
The former Espanyol boss is running the club on a very tight budget and has spent nothing in comparison to both the Manchester Clubs and most recently Liverpool. He could be hailed as the young version of Arsene Wenger and it’s not an exaggeration considering how Wenger went about his business at Highbury and took it to the then-new Emirates Stadium back in 2007.
Another manager in the Premier League with a growing reputation is Nuno Espírito Santo. He may have been given the funds to spend, has a very good squad at his disposal but we all know how the mindset can hinder or propel an athlete or teams during the marathon or in the league which lasts for more than nine months.
Take Fulham for example. The Cottagers became the first ever promoted team in the whole world to spend in excess of $100 million in a single transfer window. They bought some of the biggest stars, like Andre Schurrle who has won both Premier League and the FIFA World Cup. Jean Michael Seri who was on the transfer radar of both Liverpool and Barcelona. And not to mention other high profile players like Sergio Rico and Mitrovic.
But Wolves are showing that they are not targetting a survival in the very first season in the top-flight but they are going something big. The Wanderers 10th in the table coming into this match but only six points separate them from sixth-placed Manchester United.
Though, Nuno’s men are not expected to finish in the top six as both United and Everton have had a poor season up until now, a top-eight finish is well within their grasp.

TOT vs WOL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News:
Injured – Defender Jan Vertonghen (thigh) and Midfielder Victor Wanyama (knee) both have made progress in their rehabilitation but are not expected to get involved in this match.
Also, Mousa Dembele (ankle) and Eric Dier (appendix) remain a few weeks away from returning to the action. While striker Vincent Janssen will be missing the match as well.
Suspended – None
Questionable – Right-back Serge Aurier is back in the training. The former PSG defender has been suffering from a groin problem. However, this game may have come too soon for him and he remains questionable.
Also, midfielder Dele Alli was withdrawn at the halfway stage against Everton and wasn’t involved against Bournemouth. He remains a huge doubt for this match.
Note: Son will be unavailable in January as he will be representing his team in the Asian Cup. It means he should start in this game and shouldn’t be the part of rotation we may see in this game.
Talking about that, Moussa Sissoko may be given a rest having used in almost all the matches in the last two months or so. As a result, Harry Winks could be handed a start.
While Kyle Walker-Peters and Kieran Trippier will be fighting it out for a place at the right-back.
Key Players – Kane, Son, Eriksen
Injured – Wolves have only one injury absentee in Diogo Jota.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – None.
Note: Manager Nuno is not known for making changes to his squad, and named the same XI in the first six games. Expect the team to remain the same as it was against Fulham.
Key Players – Neves, Jimenez
TOT vs WOL Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Tottenham Hotspur– Lloris (GK), Davies, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Trippier, Winks, Skipp / Sissoko, Lamela, Eriksen, Son, Kane
Wolverhampton Wanderers– Patricio (GK), Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Doherty, Saiss, Neves, Moutinho, Jimenez, Traore
TOT vs WOL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Anything other than all three points will be a disaster for Spurs. Expect the hosts to be at full strength. Kane and Son will be leading the attack for Spurs while Jimenez is Wolves best striker.
The likes of Eriksen and Lamela provide more potency from the midfield, while Neves and Saiss can pop up with goals for Wanderers.
Kane and Jimenez will be the striking partnesp.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Wolverhampton Wanderers will head into this game high on confidence and would take heart from their recent showings. But in Tottenham Hotspur, they face one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League. Also, the Wembley is feeling more like a home for Spurs if we take the result of the last few games into consideration.
A home win.
