Ottenham’s long quest for silver resumes as they begin their Carabao Cup campaign with a trip to Molineux to face Wolves.
Spurs reached the final of last year’s competition but were beaten by Manchester City as their trophy drought stretched to 13 years since they lifted that cup in 2008.
The game will see Nuno Espirito Santo return to face his former club for the second time already, with Spurs claiming a 1-0 Premier League win over Wolves just last month.
Kick-off date, time and location
Wolves vs Tottenham is scheduled to kick off at 7.45 p.m. BST on Wednesday 22 September 2021.
Where to watch Wolves vs Tottenham
The game will not be televised live in the UK.
Wolves vs Tottenham team news
Nuno Espirito Santo’s injury and availability crisis has been mitigated by the return of his South American contingent and forward Heung-min Son, while Japhet Tanganga is available again after a suspension.
Oliver Skipp and Bryan Gil are among the young players likely to start, while Pierluigi Gollini is expected to get the green light in goal.
Wolves vs Tottenham predictions
It seems unlikely that there will be much between these teams, but Nuno should take this competition particularly seriously, given the importance that silverware of any kind would have in his first season in charge in North London.
Tottenham wins on penalties.
