Tottenham will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the new season when they host Wolves live on talkSPORT this Saturday lunchtime.
Spurs are currently fourth in the table after Harry Kane’s late equalizer saved a 2-2 draw at Chelsea last time out.

But despite their poor start to the season, the West Midlanders have won more away games at Tottenham than any other side since returning to the Premier League in 2018.

Tottenham v Wolves: Match Facts
- Since returning to the Premier League in 2018, Wolves have won just 29% of their Premier League games without Raúl Jiménez in the starting XI (12/41), compared to 41% when he started (46/113) . The Mexican has also scored in all three of Wolves’ wins against Tottenham since 2018.
- Tottenham’s Son Heung-min has scored more Premier League goals in 2022 than any other player (15). Still, the Korean has faced Wolves without ever scoring more often than any other opponent in the competition (7).
- Harry Kane has scored 184 goals for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. His next strike will see him become the highest single-club goalscorer in the history of the competition (currently tied with Sergio Agüero at Man City).
- Tottenham have conceded first in their two Premier League games this season, coming back to beat Southampton and draw with Chelsea. The last time they conceded first but avoided defeat in three consecutive Premier League games was in October 2010, beating Aston Villa and Fulham before drawing with Everton.

- Wolves are winless in their last nine Premier League games (D3 L6), their longest top-flight winless streak since a run of 17 between February 2012 and August 2018.
