Tottenham Hotspur find themselves in a fix after failing to win a single match from their last five in the Premier League recording four losses and a draw while Brighton and Hove Albion are in better condition in terms of form, managing to pick up eight points from the last available fifteen.

Spurs’ most prominent exit over the summer was prolific hitman Harry Kane who left the North London side for Bundesliga big boys Bayern München in search of a new challenge. Other notable exits include Harry Winks who left for relegated Leicester City, Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele to Turkish giants Galatasaray, Lucas Moura to Sao Paulo on a free transfer. Sergio Reguilon, Japhet Tanganga, Djed Spence, and Joe Rondon secured loan moves away to Manchester United, FC Augsburg, and Leeds United respectively.

Spurs also welcomed new faces into their fold signing Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest, English midfielder James Maddison from Leicester City, Dutch center-back Micky van de Ven from VfL Wolfsburg, Pedro Porro from Sporting CP, Dejan Kulusevski from Italian giants Juventus, and current starting goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli. Exciting winger Manor Solomon joined from Shakhtar Donetsk on a free transfer while Giovanni Lo Celso returned from his loan spell at Villarreal.

After a very exciting start to the 23/24 Premier League campaign which saw Tottenham Hotspur sit top of the Premier League table after going unbeaten in their first ten games, they have hit a bad patch of form picking up just one point from the last fifteen that have been up for grabs. Their winless run kick-started against fellow London rivals Chelsea in a match that saw them go two men down after Christian Romero was sent off in the 33rd minute for a reckless challenge on international teammate Enzo Fernandez inside the penalty box after which Udogie received his marching orders after committing a second bookable offense in the 55th minute. 

The Blues did well to capitalize on the opportunity and hammer their local rivals courtesy of a Nicolas Jackson hat trick. Narrow 2-1 losses against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa were followed by a thrilling 3-3 draw away at The Etihad, home of defending champions and favorites Manchester City with their most recent loss coming against another West London outfit, West Ham. The game ended 2-1 in favor of the Hammers.

Wolves made some personnel changes over the summer themselves as they looked to meet the needs of their manager Julien Lopetegui. They brought in Brazilian center-forward Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid, Jean-Ricner Bellagarde from Ligue 1 side Strasbourg, Santiago Bueno from Girona, Boubacar Traore from FC Metz and Enso Gonzalez from Libertad. Matt Doherty and goalkeeper Tom King joined from Atletico Madrid and Northampton on free transfers while Tommy Doyle transferred from Manchester City on loan.

Summer departures from the Wolves ranks include Matheus Nunes who sealed a move to reigning champions Manchester City, Ruben Never to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia, Nathan Collins to Brentford, English center-back Conor Coady to Leicester City, Raul Jimenez to Fulham, Ryan Giles to Luton Town and Hayao Kawabe to Belgian top-flight team Standard Liege. Daniel Podence and Goncalo Guedes sealed loan moves away to Olympiacos and Benfica respectively while the likes of Diego Costa, Joao Mutinho, and Adama Traore left for Botofago, SC Braga, and Fulham respectively on free transfers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers find themselves in a similar struggle in the Premier League this season. A disappointing start to the season saw Wolves lose four of their first five Premier League matches. Wolverhampton Wanderers must have felt unlucky after a narrow 1-0 loss against Manchester United at Old Trafford in their season opener as they probably deserved more from that game with the way they played. 

Brighton and Hove Albion added insult to their injury as they inflicted a 4-1 thrashing on Wolves at the Molineux before a trip to Goodison Park saw Wolverhampton Wanderers triumph with a hard-fought 1-0 win. Their joys were short however with back-to-back defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Liverpool respectively bringing Lopetegui’s men back down to earth. Wolverhampton Wanderers’ recent form is similar to that of the Blues as Wolves have only been able to manage 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in their last five Premier League matches.
