Tottenham vs. Wolves live score, updates, highlights & lineups from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

As Wolverhampton Wanderers try to end a five-match winless away run which has featured four defeats, Bruno Lage could do worse than show his players a replay of one of their finest results of the 2021/22 season, when they won at Tottenham Hotspur in February.

The only issue in recapping that victory might be that striker Raul Jimenez, who scored the first of Wolves’ two goals in the opening 16 minutes in their 2-0 victory, remains sidelined through injury, watching on as his teammates drew a blank in their goalless draw at home to Fulham on Saturday.

Spurs had a more dramatic weekend, twice coming from behind to earn a fractious 2-2 draw at Chelsea sealed by a controversial 96th-minute Harry Kane equaliser.

The Sporting News has live coverage of both sides’ third game of the league season.

Spurs vs. Wolves live updates and highlights

1 Hrs 15 mins to kickoff: Conte is impressed by Wolves’ spending spree. “It means that they have a lot of ambition,” he said in his pre-match remarks, in between answering one or two awkward questions about that tussle with Tuchel.

“I have a great respect for Wolverhampton and their players. They have Ruben Neves and many, many good players with a good coach.

“I give great respect to them because they are doing very well and for sure the game will be difficult for us. The recent past is also important for us, to understand that the game, it won’t be easy tomorrow.”

“At home, it’s very important to create the right atmosphere to make it difficult for our opponent. It will be a difficult game against Wolves but, at the same time, we are ready to play a good game in front of our fans.”

1 Hrs 30 mins to kickoff: “Conte has already won one Champions League and we’re going to play against top players, and that’s the challenge every week,” Wolves boss Lage said in his pre-match press conference.

Discussing the arrival of Matheus Nunes for a club record £42.2m from Sporting Lisbon on Thursday, Lage predicted: “He can be very important for us.

“We know what he did, especially in the last two years, in Sporting. He can be an important player for us.

“The challenge was for him to come and to compete in the Premier League. The Premier League is a hard league to play in.”

1 Hrs 45 mins to kickoff: Wolves needed six minutes take the lead as part of a memorable win when they last came here.

Raul Jimenez put them ahead, then Leander Dendoncker added the second after 18 minutes to give Bruno Lage’s side a lead they retained.

2 Hrs to kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ coverage as Wolves target their first win of the season against a Spurs side seeking a second successive home win to start the campaign following their come-from-behind victory over Southampton on the home day.

Wolves could have almost £70m of new signings on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium pitch in the form of central midfielder Matheus Nunes and attacker Goncalo Guedes, who they will be praying can solve their struggles in front of goal during two promising performances that have yielded only a point so far, from a 0-0 draw at home to Fulham last week.

Much of the focus, though, has been on that spectacular spat between Tottenham boss Antonio Conte and his Chelsea counterpart, Thomas Tuchel, during their teams’ mega-dramatic 2-2 draw last week, for which the Italian has been fined £15,000.

Some are disbelieving that Conte has avoided a touchline ban for his farcical dust-up with Conte. The man himself must be privately relieved that he will be allowed in the technical area today, even though he did his best to play the Battle of Stamford Bridge down.

He’ll be hoping for less theatrical tension today and a greater share of goals for Spurs, who responded to James Ward-Prowse putting Saints ahead against them last time out here by scoring four times in 43 minutes without reply.

Tottenham vs. Wolves predicted lineups

Spurs boss Antonio Conte left France centre-back Clement Lenglet out against Chelsea as a precaution because the Barcelona loanee had an adductor muscle issue. Conte said he would be available “for sure” against Wolves.

Midfielder Oliver Skipp is expected to be at least a week away from fully recovering following a hairline fracture in his ankle.

Tottenham predicted lineup (3-4-2-1): Lloris (GK) — Romero, Dier, Davies — Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon — Kulusevski, Son — Kane

Hwang Hee-chan led the line energetically in Jimenez’s continued absence, although Lage is hopeful that his most established goal threat could return before the end of August.

Wolves’ glaring lack of goals could see forward Goncalo Guedes, who signed for £27.5 million/$33.3 million from Valencia last week and replaced Hwang during the second half, handed his first start for the club.

Matheus Nunes, a club-record signing from Sporting CP, is expected to start on the bench.

Wolves predicted lineup (4-3-2-1): Sa (GK) — Jonny, Collins, Kilman, Ait-Nouri — Neves, Dendoncker, Gibbs-White — Podence, Neto — Guedes
