Tottenham Hotspur will play hosts to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley Stadium on Saturday looking to close the gap to Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. Spurs have proven their worth in recent weeks and could be the outside contenders for the Premier League title. Mauricio Pochettino will demand a win from his players this weekend, but it won’t be easy against a dogged Wolves side who are quite hard to beat when they are performing well.
The Spurs boss is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make a few changes for this clash this weekend.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Hugo Lloris will start in goal for Spurs after keeping a clean sheet against Bournemouth on Wednesday afternoon. The French goalie is slowly returning to his best and would aim to keep things tidy in between the sticks against a dangerous Wolves side on Saturday.
Both Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth should continue their partnership at the heart of the Tottenham defence as they look to keep the Wolves attackers at bay this weekend. Jan Vertonghen is still expected to be sidelined due to injury while Davinson Sanchez is a major doubt for this clash at Wembley.
Both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier would be in a race against time to be fit for this contest, so Kyle Walker-Peters could operate as the right-back in Pochettino’s starting XI. Spurs have made a habit of switching left-backs for each game so Ben Davies should start against Wolves following Danny Rose’s heavy involvement versus the Cherries in midweek.
Both Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko have worked well together at the centre of the park so they are guaranteed starters for this weekend’s home encounter against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. The terrific trio of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, and Heung-min Son could be unleashed ahead of them as they look to link up with each other in the opposition half and cause a lot of problems for the Wolves defenders.
The attacking duo of Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura will be available on the bench and could come on during the match if required.
Harry Kane managed to find the back of the net against Bournemouth on Wednesday and is currently enjoying a rich vein of form in the league at the moment. The English forward is currently playing at his peak so we can expect him to register his name on the scoresheet against a solid Wolves defence.
