Wolves confirmed XI to face Tottenham Hotspur

Wolves are facing Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League shortly – and the team news is in.

Bruno Lage is looking for a response from his side, after they were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal on Thursday night.

Wanderers fell to a Gabriel Magalhaes goal, and could not find an equaliser after Gabriel Martinelli had been sent off for two yellow cards in the same passage of play.

There is a good chance to respond today though, with Spurs – like Wolves – coming into the game having lost their last two matches.

That said, Antonio Conte has had a good impact on Spurs on the whole.

Today’s game won’t be easy, especially with Heung-min Son having another great season. Harry Kane is also finding his feet in the league after a slow start. The England captain has four goals in Spurs’ last seven matches in the competition.

It’s a quick turnaround, but perhaps good for the players to be able to make amends so soon after Thursday night’s defeat.

Confirmed Wolves XI to face Tottenham – Luke Cundle makes first Premier League start

With kick-off scheduled for 2pm, both teams have now released their starting XIs.

Lage was clearly fairly happy with what he saw at Molineux against Arsenal.

He has made only a couple of changes to the team that started against the Gunners.

The big news is that teenager Luke Cundle is making his first Premier League start for Wanderers.

The youngster has only made four appearances for the club, and recently made his Premier League debut against Southampton when he came on right at the end.

Rayan Ait-Nouri comes in in place of Fernando Marcal, after the Frenchman replaced the Brazilian midway through the second-half against Arsenal.

Joao Moutinho picked up an injury before the Arsenal game, and it seems the veteran is still struggling with the issue. He is once again absent from the matchday squad.

Leander Dendoncker therefore pairs up with Ruben Neves again in midfield.

In attack, Lage has gone with Raul Jimenez and Daniel Podence, with Francisco Trincao dropping to the bench as a result of Cundle’s inclusion.

Hwang Hee-chan, who suffered a back spasm before the game with Arsenal, is back on the bench for Lage.
