Saturday’s Premier League action concludes at Molineux where Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The hosts have started well to life back in the top flight though they do go into the game on the back of back-to-back defeats, the second of which coming at Brighton and Hove Albion last time out.

A return to winning ways here will see them remain in the top ten while they could finish the day in as high as eighth place depending on results elsewhere.

Nuno Espirito Santo changed his league starting line-up for the first-time last weekend, bringing in Adama Traore for Diogo Jota, and the Portuguese midfielder won’t feature here.

Raul Jiminez can be backed at 8.0 (7/1) to get the first goal of the game, ahead of 9.0 (8/1) chance Leo Bonatini.

The home win is as highly priced as the 3.45 (27/11) on offer from Unibet with the visitors favourites at a widely available 2.3 (13/10). The draw can be backed at 3.4 (12/5) with most firms.

Spurs were narrowly beaten by league leaders Manchester City on Monday with Riyad Mahrez’s early strike enough to separate the sides on a somewhat battered Wembley pitch.

They bounced back with a 3-1 win over West Ham United in the fourth round of the EFL Cup midweek and another win here will take them to within two points of the table toppers.

Midfield duo Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have been ruled out through injury and join Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen on the sidelines.

Harry Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 4.5 (7/2) with Son Heung-Min, fresh from a brace at the London Stadium an 8.0 (7/1) shot with several bookmakers.

It’s been seven years since these sides last faced each other at Molinuex and on that occasion the North London side ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe.

A Tottenham win to nil this time around can be backed at 4.0 (3/1) with some firms while Paddy Power offer 3.1 (21/10) for Harry Kane to score in an away victory.
