Wolves vs Tottenham: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today
Tottenham face Wolves in the Premier League today, eager to move on quickly from their shock FA Cup upset in midweek.
Inconsistent Spurs lost all the momentum from back-to-back London derby wins over West Ham and Chelsea as they were dumped out in the fifth round by Championship promotion-chasers Sheffield United in an upset at Bramall Lane on Wednesday night.
Such a costly loss will ensure that their 15-year wait for a major trophy continues, bar an unlikely triumph in the Champions League, while also throwing up more questions over the respective futures of manager Antonio Conte and talisman Harry Kane.

Conte will not be in the dugout again today, though is expected back in London this weekend and back at work for the Champions League decider against AC Milan this week. Assistant Cristian Stellini will once again lead the team today as they try to strengthen their grip on fourth place and apply pressure on Manchester United in third, with Newcastle four points behind but with two games in hand now.
15th-placed Wolves will hope to capitalise on the damage inflicted by Sheffield United as they bid to move further clear of the relegation zone under Julen Lopetegui, having generated a three-point buffer with their draw at high-flying Fulham and valuable wins over Liverpool and Southampton that were sandwiched by a poor home loss to Bournemouth.
They were beaten 2-0 at Anfield on Wednesday night in a rearranged fixture to leave them glancing nervously over their shoulders once again.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Tottenham vs Wolves is scheduled for a 3pm GMT kick-off time today on Saturday March 4, 2023.

Wolves vs Tottenham prediction
Spurs’ sheer inconsistency will be infuriating for supporters - with excellent results against Manchester City, West Ham and Chelsea over recent weeks mixed in with defeats by Leicester, AC Milan and Sheffield United.
It seems that every time they appear to be making positive progress towards their aims, along comes a really poor performance and result to throw a spanner in the works and dampen any budding enthusiasm.
They will be favourites to get back on track at Molineux, though will have to be careful with Wolves, despite their struggles, more than capable of brushing aside big teams lacking in performance.
I’m expecting a low-key and attritional affair, with Tottenham to narrowly come out on top.
Tottenham to win, 1-0.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
Tottenham have won four of the last five meetings between these two sides, including a 1-0 victory on home soil back in August when Kane scored his 250th goal.
Wolves’ only win over Spurs since 2020 came in north London last February, when Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker were on target to punish a sloppy display from the hosts.
Wolves wins: 30
