The exciting race for a top-four finish in the Premier League continues when Tottenham Hotspur host Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

Jose Mourinho‘s men are currently sixth, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea after their defeat to the Blues last weekend.

Two places but just one point behind Tottenham are Wolves, who ended a three-game winless run last weekend and will be looking to leapfrog the London side this weekend.

Can they do it, or will Tottenham come out on top and keep the pressure on Chelsea?

Ones to watch

Tottenham: Steven Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn burst onto the scene at Tottenham, scoring on debut against Manchester City to help secure a win and has caused problems on the flank.

However, against Chelsea last weekend, the Dutchman was tasked with leading the line in the absence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, something he did struggle to do.

Bergwijn was anonymous at times in west London and was taken off for Dele Alli with just over 10 minutes remaining having had very little impact. That could see Bergwijn return to the wing this weekend, where he will look to help break through a tough Wolves defence.

Key stat: Bergwijn has averaged 1.9 chances created per 90 minutes in the Premier League.

Wolves: Joao Moutinho

Wolves have once again been so good in the Premier League this season and are chasing a European spot. Just like last season, Joao Moutinho has been key to that.

The 33-year-old still oozes class in midfield and is so integral to everything Wolves do. Although they can call upon the pace of Adama Traore and finishing of Raul Jimenez, that wouldn’t be possible without Moutinho pulling the strings.

And that’s where Wolves can exploit Tottenham if they do not pay enough attention to Moutino.

Key stat: Moutinho has created more chances (59) than any other Wolves player in the Premier League this season.

Squawka prediction

Tottenham may have had a free week compared to Wolves but Espirito Santo’s side look more like a team than the fractured squad currently playing under Mourinho.

The north London side have been hit hard by injuries with an already small squad and their overuse could count against them this weekend.

Scoreline prediction: Tottenham 1-2 Wolves
