Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Wolverhampton Wanderers


Tottenham Hotspur are on their way back up the table after having appointed Jose Mourinho, but they face a tough road test on Sunday at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolves lead the Premier League in draws with nine, but they have also suffered just one loss at home this season.

Wolves and their manager Nuno Espirito Santo have flown under the radar quite a bit this season, and Mourinho pointed that out:

“[He] is getting some praise for the work he is doing. In my opinion, not enough. He deserves more than what he is getting. Fantastic work.”

“He is a much better manager than a player. I’m not saying he was a bad player, but he’s a much better manager. Wolves are one of the best teams from a tactical point of view.”

So with that all said, let’s take a look at who Mourinho may select in his first team for this challenging away fixture.
