  • 1st Half
1' 

Martin Atkinson gets the game started as Spurs kick-off

14:00 

Kick-off is less than five minutes away as both side make their way out on to the pitch

13:55 

Before the game Mason made it clear his team won't be under estimating this young Wolves side "They are a very good team, young, exciting players and what you probably find when you have a lot of young players, sometimes you’ll find inconsistency but, on their day, they are a very good side and they have proved that in the last couple of seasons in the Premier League. We have to be fully prepared and fully focussed and respect them as a team to win the game.”

13:50 

Mason took the Spurs job on at a time where moral at the club was low, but under his stewardship the London Club has secured victory in each of his two home league fixtures to date. The last Spurs manager to win each of their first three home Premier League games was Harry Redknapp back in 2008

13:45 

Remarkably under Nuno, 87 of Wolves' 133 Premier League goals have been scored in the second half (65.4%), making it the highest percentage of goals scored in the second half for any manager to have seen 100+ goals scored in their favour in Premier League history.

13:40 

Despite Wolves season falling away, Spurs will need to be at their best as records show they have lost three of their six home Premier League games against the visitors

13:35 

Wolves winger Traoré has been rewarded a starting place in the squad as he begins to find the kind of form he was hitting last season. He has been involved in four goals in his last six Premier League appearances (2 goals, 2 assists) following a run in which he didn't score or assist in 35 consecutive games.

13:30 

Mason will once again be looking to goal scoring duo of Kane and Son. The pair have the best shot conversion (15.3 per cent) in the Premier League despite averaging only 11.4 shots per game as a team - which is the lowest Tottenham have averaged in a Premier League season since Opta started keeping records in 2003/04

13:25 

Against Brighton last week Wolves started five players born in the 2000s which was a Premier League first. In the lead up to today's match Nuno stressed the importance of youth players within his squad “We trust the young player and lets see now for the remaining matches how we’re going to balance the team. It’s all about balancing the youth with experience, even the senior players can learn a lot from the youth players, so we’re trying to make the games useful for us in the future."

13:20 

Last time these two sides met was back in December with the game ending in a 1-1 draw at Molineux. Tottenham were in search of their first win in four matches and found themselves ahead after 57 seconds through Ndombele's 25 yard effort. But a late Saiss header in an 86th-minute dashed their chances of leaving with all three points.

13:15 

And this is side that Nuno has selected.

There are four changes to the team that started in their win over Brighton. Traore is recalled after coming off the bench to score against the Seagulls, while Semedo, Saiss and Dendoncker also return.

13:10 

Here is how the home side have lined up.

Interim head coach Ryan Mason only makes one change to his side as Tanganga comes in to replace Aurier in defence

13:05 

Good afternoon and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Both teams have very different ambitions coming into today's game, while the hosts are looking to stay ahead of Everton in the table in their bid for a European qualification spot, the visitors still have an outside chance of finishing in the top half for a third successive season. Despite these differences the importance of the three points remains the same, making this fascinating fixture. All the team new, facts and stats to follow with kick-off at 14:05.
