Wolverhampton Wanderers welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Molineux today.
Wolves legend Steve Bull spoke exclusively to the Express & Star, and predicted that his former side will be more than a match for Tottenham at Molineux today, highlighting the 19:45 kick-off as something that might just work in the home team’s favour.
The Black Country outfit have lost two Premier League games on the bounce, but their fine start to the campaign has ensured that they are still in a respectable position in the league table.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be desperate for his team to end their losing run as soon as possible, and what better way to do just that than by turning over Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side.
Bull, who scored a club record 306 goals for Wolves, suggested that his former side might just have an advantage due to the fact that the game is scheduled to kick-off at 19:45 at night, as quoted by the Express & Star:
“Up against Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld – to name a few – there is no doubt it will be a very difficult test, but I am confident that we can match them. I think the 7.45pm kick-off could play into Wolves’ favour. It is pretty unheard of to be playing at that time on a Saturday so I reckon there will be a fantastic atmosphere at Molineux, getting on the Tottenham players’ backs right from the outset – unsettling them – and being that 12th man to clinch that point, if not all three.”
The game can be seen exclusively live on Sky Sports.
