Tottenham Hotspur would look to continue their unbeaten run of the season, as they face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon. The Lilywhites are currently fourth on the table, having scored six goals and conceded three. They are behind Manchester City, Arsenal, and Brentford.
Antonio Conte’s side came from behind to earn four points against Southampton and Chelsea. They won the match against Southampton and had a controversial draw against Chelsea.
Their opponents, Wolves currently sit 14th in the League table. After a loss against Leeds and a draw against Fulham, they currently have a single point. Bruno Lage’s men would be eager to finally secure more points on the table.
In terms of injuries, Tottenham have a largely fit squad. Most key first-team players and substitutes are healthy. Academy product Oliver Skipp is out with a heel injury. He is likely to return to training by the end of the month, according to Conte.
Barcelona loanee Clement Lenglet was unavailable for the match against Chelsea. Reportedly, this was due to “a minor issue” with his adductor, according to Conte’s description. However, that seemed to be just a precaution, and he should take a spot on the bench.
Antonio Conte received a red card after the London derby on Sunday. This was due to his tiff with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel. He will be absent from the dugout for this match.
Key Players for Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs have one of the most dangerous frontlines in the League. As proven last season, the trio of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, and Dejan Kulusevski is extremely dangerous to even the best defences of the League. Neutralizing them would be the key to Tottenham’s victory.
Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg are other significant players, alongside goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. New signings Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, and Djed Spence are also probably eager to show their worth and fight for spots on the Starting XI.
