Here come the teams, Spurs heading out onto the pitch first. A victory today would put them back into the top four.

Harry Kane has scored nine league goals – a 10th would see him become just the fourth Englishman to reach double figures in seven consecutive Premier League campaigns.

This match comes a year to day since Adama Traore scored his last Premier League goal. He has failed to score or assist in any of his last 21 top-flight appearances.

After four clean sheets in their first seven league fixtures of the season, Wolves have conceded in all of their last seven.
Wolves have scored just three goals from set-pieces in this season’s Premier League – prior to the latest round of fixtures, only Burnley had scored fewer.

Harry Kane has had 10 assists in this season’s top flight, more than any other player.
Eight of those assists have been for Son Heung-min – one more would equal the Premier League record for most assists for a team-mate in a season, set by Blackburn’s Mike Newell (for Alan Shearer in 1995/96) and Liverpool’s Stan Collymore (for Robbie Fowler, also in 1995/96).

Tottenham could lose three league matches in a row for the first time since November 2012.
Spurs are also in danger of losing consecutive away league games for the first time under Jose Mourinho.
They won their opening four away league matches of the season but have not won any of the last three (two draws and on defeat).
