Tottenham Hotspur host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.
Both clubs emerged with a point against west London opposition last weekend from matches of drastically contrasting drama. While Tottenham battled Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a contest as enthralling as it was explosive, Wolves eked out a 0-0 draw against Fulham in a game that could boast just 14 shots all game – only two matches in the entirety of the 2021/22 campaign saw fewer efforts at goal.
Here’s everything you need to know about the meeting between this differing duo.

Tottenham team news
Antonio Conte is yet to start one of his new summer arrivals and left Clement Lenglet out of last weekend’s squad entirely while he recovered from fatigue. The Frenchman is expected to be available again this weekend.
Oliver Skipp, however, is still edging his way back from a heel injury which may keep him out until the end of August.
Tottenham Starting 11: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bissouma, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.
Bench: Forster, Doherty, Sanchez, Richarlison, Bryan, Perisic, Tanganga, Moura, Hojbjerg.
Wolves team news
Raul Jimenez has returned to the training pitch with the ball at his feet as he continues his recovery from an MCL strain. While the Mexico international could feature before September sweeps in, the exciting winger Chiquinho is at risk of missing the entire campaign after undergoing knee surgery in the summer.
Joao Moutinho has also been spotted back in training as the veteran midfielder appears to have shaken off a foot problem he sustained by striking the ball with his weaker left side. If Moutinho does return against Spurs, they’ll know which foot he’ll favour when taking aim.
Wolves Starting 11: Sa; Jonny, Collins, Kilman, Ait Nouri; Neves, Moutinho; Gibbs-White, Podence, Neto; Hwang.
Bench: Sarkic, Boly, Guedes, Semedo, Gomes, Ronan, Traore, Cundle, Dendoncker.
Bruno Lage lamented a lack of ’emotional control’ as his side gave in to the frustration prompted by their spurned chances against Fulham. Conte’s emotions also got the better of him last weekend as he received his marching orders at the final whistle.
However, even without his energetic presence in the dugout, Tottenham are favourites against a side that has been searching for a Premier League victory since 2 April.
Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 Wolves
