Wolverhampton Wanderers have had a difficult start to the season, and they will be hoping to turn things around when they play Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup third round. Both teams are coming off defeats, with Wolves losing 2-0 at home to Brentford.
That was their fourth game without scoring in six this season, and both of their triumphs have come away from home. They've lost four straight games at home, and seven of their last ten.
This will be their second match against Tottenham this season, and it won't be one they're looking forward to, as they've lost all three of their previous meetings with Spurs. Their league meeting earlier this season ended in a 1-0 defeat, bringing it two defeats in a row against the North London side.
Tottenham are winless in their last three games entering this match.They've lost two of their three games and have given up at least two goals in each of them. They haven't played as well defensively recently as they did when they started the league season with three straight clean sheets.
Their most recent game ended in defeat, with a 3-0 loss to Chelsea, and they will need their top man, Harry Kane, to start scoring again after failing to do so in the previous four games. Spurs had their South American players back against Chelsea, and Japhet Tanganga's suspension is coming to an end.
In their last ten away matches, they have three wins and four losses, so things aren't looking good for them. Nonetheless, they enter this competition hoping to improve on their previous season's League Cup final loss to Manchester City.
Both Spurs and Wolves are coming off losing streaks, and the fact that this is their second meeting this season further adds to the challenge. Spurs have a bad away record, whereas Wolves have a bad home record. At 90 minutes, a draw appears to be the most likely result. The game will be played today at 7:45 PM Nigerian time.
