Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to finish the season with a flourish.

Nuno Espirito Santo has started to entrust some of the younger players in his squad in recent games, and they have had a positive impact.

The draw against West Bromwich Albion was a great performance, and there were some more positive displays in the win over Brighton.

Hopefully, the manager will continue to stick with some of those players that have caught the eye.

It’s Tottenham Hotspur standing in the way of another three points, and Spurs are looking to seal qualification for the Europa League.

A difficult game, therefore, potentially awaits.

Nuno may go with four at the back again in an attempt to familiarise the players with the system.

The quartet in front of Rui Patricio could be Ki-Jana Hoever, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Rayan Ait-Nouri.


Saiss, 31, dropped to the bench against Brighton, but actually scored in the reverse fixture against Spurs earlier this season and could come back into the starting XI at the expense of Max Kilman.

He and Coady could well be given one more chance to prove they can work as a centre-back pairing.

In midfield, Ruben Neves, Morgan Gibbs-White and Vitinha might be the trio of choice, with Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker to be rested.

Gibbs-White did well against Brighton and will be feeling confident after his winning goal. It would be nice to see him given the chance to build on his showing against the Seagulls.

In attack, £18 million star Adama Traore (BBC Sport) and Daniel Podence could be the wide men, with Fabio Silva through the middle.

Podence has struggled for form recently and one feels he needs the games right now.

Silva is getting better by the game and should get the nod over Willian Jose.
