The new Spurs coach Nuno Espirito Santo will stand in the second round against his former team, which he led for the previous 4 years. To the surprise of many, the Spurs beat the current champion Manchester City 1-0 at the start of the championship. The home team showed a solid and brave game in that match, so despite the absence of the head of the star striker Harry Kane, they deservedly celebrated with a Heung-Min Son goal in the 55th minute.
The Wolves, on the other hand, suffered a minimal defeat by Leicester although they showed solid football in the debut match of another Portuguese coach on the bench of this team. The orange-black even managed to equalize in the match’s finish, but that goal was justifiably annulled due to the offside position.
The role of a slight favourite in this match is on the away side. There is a high probability that Harry Kane will be ready for this match, and I expect that with his help, the guests will record their second consecutive victory.
Wolverhampton Team News
Wolves have big problems with injured players. The reliable duo expects long breaks from the midfield of Neto-Podence and defenders Johny and Boly. What is positive news for this team is the return of former Barcelona player Nelson Semedo, who missed the first match of the season due to insufficient fatigue.
The club’s top player and scorer, Raul Jimenez, played all 90 minutes against Leicester, but it is obvious that the long absence has left consequences for him, and it is certain that he will need some time to get into recognizable form.
Tottenham Team News
Spurs have no problem with player absences. The somewhat forgotten Dele Alli, who was at the mercy of Jose Mourinho last season, has great confidence from the new coach and Steven Bergwijin, who played a great match against City and assisted on the winning goal.
