Wolves 0-1 Tottenham

Five minutes added on at the end of the first half as Royal is booked for bringing down Semedo as he raced down the wing.

Wolves have lacklustre from set pieces so far but Bellegarde has a golden opportunity to create a chance here.

The ball is dragged along the box to Ait-Nouri but his strike is blocked by Dier for a Wolves corner.

This delivery is better, and reaches Lemina at the back post but he is unable to direct his header towards goal.

Vicario makes another solid save, this time from Ait-Nouri, getting down swiftly to block with his left boot but the assistant’s flag was already up.

Gary O’Neil’s side have already they are capable of punching above their weight at Molineux this season, but they will no doubt feel disappointed if they fail to convert this momentum into a goal before the interval.

The stats show that Spurs are dominating the ball here at Molineux but the visitors have yet to create consistent chances from their success.

Wolves have looked more like scoring since the opening goal and they’re looking to make another chance here…

Ait-Nouri finds Semedo, who plays in Lemina and the summer signing forces a good save out of Vicario who palms away for a corner.

The goalscorer Johnson finds space on the wing and attempts to find an onrushing Son in the penalty box but his low cross is well claimed by Sa.

Moments later the former Nottingham Forest player has a coming together with Hwang but neither man is cautioned.

There’s a real battle developing between Ait-Nouri and Porro developing on the right flank as Porro concedes a foul halting the Algerian’s advance.

Wolves are pressing high up the pitch but Vicario does well to find his pass.

Gomes brings Porro down as the Spaniard again looks to make a run down the right-hand side.

Porro is walking off the pitch gingerly and you have to think Postecoglou will be anxious to ensure his side avoid sustaining any further injuries, particularly in defence.

After the mandated 30 seconds on the sideline the former Sporting star returns to action.

Ait-Nouri bombs through the middle of the pitch as Wolves continue their search for an equaliser but Cunha is unable to get past Davies as Spurs are able to absorb the pressure.

We have a slight break in the action as Lemina is tended to by medical staff before being cleared to continue.

Porro again tries to get forward, he and Kulusevski have enjoyed a really bright start down the right flank so far, Wolves will need to be weary going forward.

Wolves have now conceded first in their last four Premier League games but they’ve responded well here.

KICK-OFF: Wolves 0-0 Tottenham

The two sides line up at the centre circle as a moment of silence is held for armistice day.A perfectly observed silence is maintained before the Last Post is played out at Molineux.

The hosts kick-off to get us started as Hwang passes straight back to Sa in the Wolves goal.

Kick-Off is less than ten minutes away!

With the warm-ups complete and the players returned to their dressing rooms we are now less than ten minutes from kick-off as both Wolves and Spurs attempt to return to winning ways.

Make sure to stay right here as we will detail all the action from kick-off at Molineux.

Tottenham’s trip to Wolves will make Premier League history with bodycams to be used for the first time.

A player from each side will wear a bodycam during the warm-ups at Molineux at Saturday lunchtime after TNT Sports and the Premier League struck an historic partnership.

During the summer Aston Villa and Newcastle trialled bodycams during a match on their US tour, but their use at Molineux is a first on a Premier League pitch, giving fans a brand new perspective of a player’s pre-match routine.


Tottenham Form Guide

Like Gary O’Neil, Ange Postecoglou was faced with the task of revitalising a team in crisis when he took the reigns this summer. However, unlike his opposite number this afternoon, the Australian wasted little time in getting results on the pitch.

The departure of Harry Kane promised to usher in a new era for better or worse at the North London club, but thanks to some shrewd buisness this summer the club have barely taken a backwards step since.

As recently as last week, Spurs sat top of the Premier League table, yet to lose in the competition and having dropped points just twice in ten games.

However, defeat to Chelsea on Monday has been compounded by injuries to James Maddison and Micky van de Ven which have threatened to derail what has been a promising start to the campaign.

Wolves Form Guide

After Julen Lopetegui departed by mutual consent in August having guided Wolves from the relegation zone to safety last season, the incoming Gary O’Neil was faced with the unenviable task of picking up the pieces and contiuing to build at Molineux.

The departures of Ruben Neves and Mattheus Nunes this summer followeed by just one win from their first five Premier League games did little to inspire confidence, but the O’Neil managed to get the wheels turning.

The side followed up a 1-1 draw with Luton by handing Man City their first defeat of the season, then defeated Bournemouth with respectable draws against the likes of Aston Villa and Newcastle.

Defeat away at Sheffield United to hand the newly-promoted side their first win of the season will have come as a shock, but O’Neil will be hoping the result was will prove little more than a blip as they look to continue their good form this afternoon.

The popular Australian has taken English football by storm since taking charge in the summer and saw his side go unbeaten in their first 10 games.

Spurs’ progress was slightly halted by a chaotic 4-1 defeat to Chelsea on Monday after they were reduced to nine men, but it has still been a fine start to the campaign.
