Antonio Conte has totally transformed this Spurs team within just a couple of months and based on their current performance, there’s every chance they are going to challenge Man City for the Premier League title.
Spurs scored an injury-time winner to draw against Chelsea but after the final whistle, both Conte and Tuchel picked up red cards which means when Tottenham take on Wolves this weekend, their manager will have to watch from the stands.
Wolves are still winless this season, drawing one and losing one in the league and with the form that Tottenham are in right now, we don’t think Bruno Lage’s side will be able to stand up against them on Saturday.
The last time these two sides met, Wolves won that game 2-0 but back then, Conte was still figuring out his best XI. Now, it’s a totally different story because the manager has been able to pass on his winning mentality to his players so it’s very hard to predict anything other than a Spurs victory.
Tottenham team news and possible tactics:
Clement Lenglet narrowly missed the Chelsea game so Antonio Conte should see his return this weekend.
The manager had said last week: ‘I don’t think he’s available for Chelsea. For sure, for the next game. He has a little problem with fatigue; he’s a bit tight in his adductor, in the muscle, nothing serious, but as a precaution, it’s not good to take risks.’
Lenglet’s availability will be a big boost for the manager but there’s very little chance that he’s going to break into the first XI.
Oliver Skipp remains sidelined with a calf injury meaning right now, there’s only Yves Bissouma to challenge the pairing of Hojberg and Bentacur in central midfield.
Bissouma played 11 minutes against Chelsea but we don’t think the manager is going to hand him a start just yet. Bentancur is undroppable while Hojbjerg was the standout player at the Bridge so there’s no way Antonio Conte is benching either of them.
Sessegnon had a muted game last weekend while Ivan Perisic came off the bench to provide an assist so the summer signing should be coming into the first XI.
Richarlison is also waiting in the wings eagerly to get a start and this might be the match he replaces Son on the left wing. Wolves are not the toughest of opponents and after the Chelsea game, Son does deserve a rest.
Spurs predicted line up vs Wolves:
Predicted Starting Line up(3-4-2-1): Lloris; Eric Dier, Romero, Ben Davies; Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic/Sessegnon, Royal; Richarlison/Son, Kulusevski; Harry Kane.
