- A last-gasp Harry Kane header rescued a point for Spurs in a dramatic and emotionally charged encounter with London rivals Chelsea last weekend, with all the talk in the aftermath revolving around the touchline fracas between Antonio Conte and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
- Conte is forced into at least one change due to an injury to Cristian Romero but the Spurs boss has reiterated that he is likely to keep faith with the team he trusted last season, meaning the likes of Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison are kept waiting for their first start.
- Missed chances was once again a common theme for Wolves in their goalless draw with Fulham, but they can thank goalkeeper Jose Sa for their point after the Portuguese stopper saved Aleksandar Mitrovic’s penalty deep into the second half.
- The sale of Morgan Gibss-White leaves a gap that needs to be filled in the attacking areas, and Adama Traore – back at Wolves following a fairly disastrous loan spell at Barcelona – will be considered for a start.
THE TEAM NEWS
PREDICTED XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessengnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
UNAVAILABLE: Romero (Injured), Skipp (Injured)
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Sa; Jonny, Collins, Kilman, Ait-Nouri; Neves, Dendoncker; Traore, Podence, Neto; Hwang
UNAVAILABLE: Chiquinho (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Moutinho (Fitness), Jimenez (Fitness)
Although Spurs were thoroughly outplayed by Chelsea last week, the fact that they came away with a point is testament to the resilience that they have built since Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club. There is clearly still a good deal of work to do when it comes to challenging for the title, but the signs are positive and you’d expect them to kick on now. Wolves have been wasteful in their two games so far, and the departure of Morgan Gibbs-White will weaken them until they can find a replacement in the transfer market. Expect Spurs to put a couple past them here in what is likely to be a routine victory for the hosts.
TIP: TOTTENHAM TO WIN
