Team News for Both Sides

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Gio Lo Celso, battling a knock, it out for this one. Japhet Tanganga is also unavailable, due to a shoulder injury.

Meanwhile summer splash signing Gareth Bale is a doubt here, due to a calf injuiry. The Welsh winger came off at half time of the EFL Cup quarterfinal triumph at Stoke City. Bale opened the scoring in that match.

Flipping over to Wolves, they will continue to be without star striker Raul Jimenez, as he works his way back from surgery to repair a fractured skull. In addition to this long term injury absentee, Leander Dendoncker is also out of commission here.

In looking at the kind of team that Jose Mourinho might pick for this match at Wolves, it all seems somewhat straight-forward.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction (4-3-3) vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele; Bergwijn, Son, Kane.
