How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers

Ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur, Sports Mole looks at how Jose Mourinho's side could line up at Molineux.

Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers with the opportunity to move ahead of their hosts in the Premier League standings.

Heading into the weekend, Wolves hold a one-point and one-place advantage over the North London outfit, with the teams sitting in sixth and seventh position respectively.

While Wolves are unbeaten in the Premier League since September 22, Spurs have recorded nine points from four games since the arrival of Jose Mourinho.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how Spurs may line up for their visit to the West Midlands.

Having chosen to rest a number of players for the Champions League fixture with Bayern Munich in midweek, Mourinho could revert to the team which began the 5-0 win over Burnley last weekend.

That would see Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane all return to their respective positions.

Mourinho will hope to have more options at his disposal, with Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Erik Lamela having almost recovered from injury.

However, given the magnitude of the fixture, it appears unlikely that any of the trio will be included in the starting lineup.

One potential change could be the inclusion of Danny Rose, who may be used in place of Vertonghen due to the pace of Wolves winger Adama Traore.
