Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City 1-0 in their most recent English Premier League fixture. A second-half goal from South Korean forward Son Heung-min ensured victory for Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham Hotspur.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Wolverhampton Wanderers endured a poor 2020/21 season under Nuno Espirito Santo, who subsequently left the club this summer and became the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. The return of Raul Jimenez after a serious injury last season has been received well, and the Mexican will once again be tasked with providing the goals for Wolves.
Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, continue to dominate headlines due to the Harry Kane saga. Manchester City are heavily interested in signing the superstar striker, and Kane reportedly wants to move as well. Both teams looked deprived of a no.9 last week, when Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester City narrowly.
Tottenham Hotspur looked defensively sound against Manchester City, which is a hallmark of good Nuno Espirito Santo sides. Bruno Lage is an unknown quantity, and it remains to be seen what he does with his Wolves side. A win for Tottenham Hotspur seems likely.
Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
