Tottenham vs Wolves match preview
Tottenham will hope to replicate their dominant home win over Southampton on the opening day of the season when Wolves come to town, though Lage’s outfit are generally a tougher nut to crack.
But it has been an encouraging first two games of the Premier League season for those of a Spurs persuasion. The fluidity and swagger of the Saints victory was followed up with a steely and battling draw at Chelsea, even if Conte’s clash with Tuchel dominated the headlines in the aftermath.
Crucially for Tottenham, there is now a sense that they have the firepower to dismantle lesser opposition at home, with new signing Richarlison waiting in the wings and Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski tormenting defences.
The contrast of the two performances will undoubtedly have pleased Conte, who has always been a manager able to instil both guile and tenacity in his teams.
Spurs will be clear favourites heading into the meeting with Wolves, but they will be wary of a drop off in intensity after the drama of the Chelsea contest.
For the visitors, the hope will be to capitalise on any lapses from the opposition and to keep things as tight as possible. They managed to do that throughout last season, earning a 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in February.
The start to this season has been a stuttering one for the visitors, who have scored just once in their opening two matches and only avoided back-to-back defeats because Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a late penalty last weekend.
Lage has switched to a back four system this term and admitted after the Fulham draw that his players still have work to do.
"I'm happy with the four at the back but now we need to work more," he said. "We started to improve and found spaces between the lines. Then we dominated more and created more chances – these are the things we need to improve in a different system.
"The other thing we need to grow up is emotional control. In the last 10 minutes we lost the position."
It could be that patience is key for Wolves, but a positive result on Saturday lunchtime may well kick start their campaign.
Wolves will be without Raul Jimenez and Joao Moutinho for the visit to Spurs, while Oliver Skipp is likely to be the only absentee for the home side. Barcelona loanee Clement Lenglet is expected to be in contention for a place in the squad after missing the Chelsea match.
