Tottenham Hotspur will be hosting Wolves on Sunday. The fixture will take place at 7:30 pm IST at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs will play their 22nd match of the league while Wolves will play their 23rd match of the league. Wolves have been a tough nut to crack this season whereas Tottenham are fighting for a position in the top four.
Tottenham Hotspur recently lost 2-3 to Southampton. Although they look like a tough team to beat, there are a few areas where Tottenham has to work on. Moreover, Wolves is one team that can hurt you if you do not finish the game when you have the chance. Spurs will have to be on the top of their game to defeat Wolves and take home the three points.

Wolves have conceded the 2nd least number of goals this season. They have a very strong defensive unit and can trouble Tottenham with this defense. Moreover, their midfield can also be a lot to handle for the opponents. However, their attack can be a weakness while facing Tottenham and will have to be clinical as they might only get a few chances.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Spurs team news
Tottenham will once again be without Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga due to their injuries. Moreover, Eric Dier also remains a doubt because of a thigh injury. If he is fit to play then Dier might start in the back three.
If that is the case then Conte might also give Rodrigo Bentancur his full debut since Hojbjerg failed to impress against Southampton. Dejan Kulusevski is also another option for a full debut if Conte goes with 3-4-3. However, he is likely to opt for 3-5-2 to strengthen his midfield which will see Lucas Moura on the bench.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup
Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son
Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur: Wolves team news
Joao Moutinho will be a huge loss for Wolves as he is one important player in the midfield. Wolves will not risk playing if he is deemed fit to play. Hwang Hee-Chan was on the bench in midweek and may feature against Spurs.
Pedro Neto, Willy Boly, Yerson Mosquera will also be absent due to injuries. Chiquinho’s display against Arsenal could earn him a place in the starting lineup ahead of Trincao. Rayan Ait-Nouri is likely to start as a left-back as Marcal was injured against Arsenal.
Wolves possible starting lineup
Jose Sa; Maximilian Kilman, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Chiquinho, Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence
