Having scored 11 goals in their last two games, Tottenham Hotspur are absolutely on fire right now. Having now leapt up to second place in the table, surging at the same time Manchester City is sagging, the north London side is definitely NOT the team you want be to playing right now.

That’s a bummer for Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are the next team slated to face Mauricio Pochettino’s men. What makes Spurs’ recent run of form even more astounding is how they have been able to do it despite having such an injury-plagued midfield. Winning big, despite all the injuries, also kind of blows up all the arguments we all made in the summer about Spurs’ historically uneventful transfer window.

For now at least, it’s been no summer additions, no problem; even with plenty of injuries this term. Let’s take a look at who Pochettino could start on Saturday against Wolves.
