Spurs take on Wolves in their second match of the Premier League season and as per the manager’s comments, Harry Kane is still not 100% to start.

Kane joined pre-season training late which is why he did not feature in the matchday squad for the Manchester City game. And according to Nuno Espirito Santo, the forward is available for selection this time around but he did not guarantee a start.

The manager said earlier this week: “He trained today, he trained good, and he’s going to train tomorrow, and tomorrow we will make a decision. It’s a day by day decision.

“All the players that are involved in training sessions are options for us.”

Joe Rodon is another player who missed the midweek game against Pacos and he’s still not ready to feature on Sunday.

The manager said, as per the club’s official website: “Joe missed the game (at Pacos de Ferreira), and that was disappointing for us because he’s one of the players who needs to play, who needs to get real competition time. He’s better, but not well enough to join us on Sunday.”

Cristian Romero played in the Conference League but he seemed to have a problem towards the end of the game. The manager though has made it clear that it was basic fatigue and not an injury.

But given that he played just a few days ago, Romero should be starting on the bench against Wolves.

Nuno added: “I think it was due to fatigue, it was his first game in a while, he played 90 minutes intensely. He is well today and he is recovering, but he is OK.”

And while talking about Tanguy Ndombele, the Spurs boss has made it clear that the 24-year-old will not be involved at Molineux.

The manager admitted: “I can be completely honest with you, Tanguy is not going to be involved in the squad on Sunday.”

Some reports have hinted that Harry Kane could be named in the matchday squad against Wolves but Nuno will be reluctant to use him in the starting line-up with Man City still interested in him.
