Kane on the bench, Skipp starts again – Possible Spurs starting line-up vs Wolves


Tottenham will aim to continue their 100% start to the Premier League season when they face Wolves on Sunday, and Nuno Espirito Santo has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection against his former club.

In his press conference on Friday, the Spurs boss suggested Harry Kane could play a part this weekend but Tanguy Ndombele has been left out of the squad after reportedly asking to leave the club.

Despite Kane’s potential availability, we think Nuno will go with the exact same line-up that started in the victory over Manchester City on the opening day of the new campaign.

That means, Hugo Lloris will again be protected by a back four of Japhet Tanganga, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Sergio Reguilon. Cristian Romero probably isn’t quite ready to start league games.

In midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be partnered by Oliver Skipp. Dele Alli will join them as part of a trio but might be given a bit more licence to join attacks against Wolves.

Son Heung-min will be supported by Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, who will hopefully get among the goals. Kane should be on the bench.
