Wolves take on Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day, and Jose Mourinho’s side have hit a bump in the road.

The north Londoners are down to fifth in the Premier League table now after losing against Liverpool and Leicester, and there is a potential opportunity for Wolves.

The defeat last time out against Burnley was a big disappointment, and the fans are expecting a big response from Nuno and his players.

Wolves haven’t had a clean sheet in any of their last seven matches and Rui Patricio will hope that changes on Sunday.

 

He could be protected by a back five of Nelson Semedo, Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Max Kilman and Fernando Marcal.

In midfield, if Leander Dendoncker is fit then he has to play and it could be that Owen Otasowie gets another chance having done well against the Clarets despite playing a strange advanced role.

In attack, Daniel Podence and Pedo Neto are practically nailed on to start such has been their fantastic form, and Fabio Silva could be set for a recall after his cameo on Monday.

Silva is off the mark now after he won and converted a penalty at Turf Moor, and he might get the nod after Nuno’s glowing assessment of the teenager.
