Three questions Bruno Lage will be looking at in Wolves’ EFL Cup tie vs Tottenham

Wolves face Tottenham for the second time this season in the EFL Cup tonight.

The match of course brings Nuno Espirito Santo back to Molineux for the second time in the space of a month.

Nuno’s Spurs won 1-0 last time around but there were plenty of positives for Bruno Lage to take from that game as he goes in search of revenge tonight.

Here is a look at three questions Lage may be asking himself ahead of the clash tonight…

How many changes does he make?

Lage does have the capacity to make changes in most areas of the pitch tonight, like he did against Nottingham Forest in the previous round.

But this is a tough assignment tonight, against Nuno, and with Wolves looking for a response after the weekend loss to Brentford.

Lage might be tempted to play more of his first-teamers than he usually would for a midweek cup clash; time will tell.

Does he switch to a back four?

It has been reported this week that Wolves worked on a back four in a training session after that Brentford loss.

Perhaps Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera could be involved here, and a four-man defence could work.

The question will linger until Lage makes the switch; for some fans, it would represent a really clean break from the Nuno era.

Can Lage get a reaction?

The Brentford loss was the most disappointing result and performance of the season.

Lage needs to get a response from his players and knocking Spurs out of the cup would be a real shot in the arm.

The squad appear united and determined to improve results, but Lage’s ability to get a reaction will be tested here.
