Tottenham return to Premier League action looking to close the gap to the Premier League top four.
Three wins from Jose Mourinho’s first four games in charge have elevated Spurs back into the top half and into contention for the European spots.
Should Ryan Sessegnon be a starter at Tottenham?
Having already secured qualification prior to their 3-1 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich, it was a game where Mourinho was able to rest some of his stars.
Spurs’ last Premier League outing saw them thrash Burnley 5-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but they should face a much sterner test away at Wolves; Nuno Espirito Santo’s side sit one point above them.
So how will they lineup?
Mourinho looks likely to make seven changes to the side that lost in Munich. Paulo Gazzaniga continues to deputise for the injured Hugo Lloris. while the defence is starting to look pretty settled. Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld have become the centre-back pairing, while Jan Vertonghen is preferred to Danny Rose on the left.
With Tanguy Ndombele expected to miss out due to a groin problem, Moussa Sissoko should be retained in midfield; the Frenchman has scored in two of his last three Premier League games. Harry Winks has returned to training and could get the nod alongside him despite missing the games against Burnley and Bayern. His 763 passes in the Premier League this season are more than any other Spurs midfielder, second only to Toby Alderweireld in the squad.
There could be changes in the front four. Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Heung-min Son look settled for their places, all starting in that emphatic win over Burnley. Lucas Moura also featured, but Christian Eriksen remains a competitor for the time being. However, after his goal at the Allianz Arena in midweek, Ryan Sessegnon could get his first Premier League start for Spurs since joining from Fulham in the summer.Like what the TT have on offer?
