It hasn’t been a great start so far for Wolverhampton Wanderers, and they will be looking to get their season on track when hosting Tottenham Hotspur in the third round of the League Cup.
Both teams are coming from losses; Wolves were beaten 2-0 at home by Brentford.
That was their fourth game in six this season without scoring and their two wins this season have come away from home.
They go to this game with four straight losses at home, and seven in 10.
This will be their second meeting with Tottenham this season, and it isn’t a game they’ll really be looking forward to, having gone winless in each of their last three matches against Spurs.
Their meeting in the league earlier this season ended 1-0, making it two straight losses against the North London side.
Tottenham head to this game winless in their last three matches.
They have two losses in the three games and have conceded at least two goals in each of the three matches.
For a side that opened their league campaign with three straight clean sheets, they haven’t done so well defensively lately.
Their last game ended in disappointment, losing 3-0 to Chelsea and they will need their main man Harry Kane to start firing again, having failed in the last four matches.
Spurs had their South American stars back against Chelsea and will have a further boost as Japhet Tanganga finishes his suspension.
They have three wins and four losses in their last 10 away matches so it isn’t also very rosy for them going to this game.
Still, they start their run in this competition looking to improve on their loss to Manchester City in the League Cup final last season.
