2019/20 Premier League
28 February – 1 March 2020
In a key battle for places in European football next season, Tottenham Hotspur will host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday 1 March 2020, kick-off at 14:00. The match is one of eight spread from 28 February to 1 March for the 28th
round of the 2019/20 Premier League
season, with two fixtures postponed due to the League Cup final between Manchester City and Aston Villa.
Tottenham come into the game on the back of a disappointing 2-1 away loss at the hands of London rivals Chelsea last weekend, a result which dents their hopes of reaching European club football next season.
“I have no complaints about my players that is for sure. The result could be different. Could be 3-1, could be 2-2. Difficult for my players to do any more,” said manager Jose Mourinho, who is having to cope with an injury crisis, especially up front.
“What we have at the moment with the power we have or don’t have, with the situation we’re in which is almost unique. If they press high they know we have to go long and we can’t. If they do a deep block we struggle to get into the box. Our opponents know.”

Wolverhampton Wanderers returned to winning form in the Premier League by crushing Norwich City 3-0, with goals from Diogo Jota (two) and Raul Jimenez.
“The way they recover, the way they respect themselves, the way the staff dedicates, we don't have days off," revealed manager Nuno Espirito Santo. "We are always preparing ourselves to compete. This is how we want to compete, and the difficulty is to sustain it, so it requires a lot of hard work, and every day is harder. But it's our job. We embrace the challenge, so everybody has to help – everyone."
