Son Heung-min starts? – Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Wolverhampton Wanderers

Published

on

Tottenham return to Premier League action after a successful Carabao Cup game against West Ham United. Mauricio Pochettino shuffled his pack as they beat the Hammers 3-1 with Son Heung-min grabbing a brace.

Spurs face the Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, and it will be another test of our title credentials as the promoted side are no pushovers.

Pochettino has some selection headaches given our performance in midweek, and here is our predicted line-up for the clash against the Wolves.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Although Paulo Gazzaniga impressed against the Hammers, our captain should return to take on the newly promoted side.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier was given a rest in the midweek Carabao Cup game and should return to the first-team on Saturday.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez played in the win over the Hammers and was one of our better performers in the tie.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian wasn’t played in the Carabao Cup tie but Tottenham will count on him to perform well in the heart of the defence.

Ben Davies (LB)

The Welshman was another star that didn’t play in midweek and needs a good performance for Tottenham in this game.

Harry Winks (CM)

Winks looks to be close to his best and will continue to control the tempo of our play from midfield.

Eric Dier of Tottenham

Eric Dier

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier is another player that hasn’t been consistent this season. The Englishman has to rack up a few good games under his belt, and hopefully will have a great performance on Saturday.

Lucas Moura (LAM)

The Brazilian scored in our 2-2 draw against PSV and needs to find the back of the net after a bit of a barren spell in recent games.

Erik Lamela Tottenham

Erik Lamela (CAM)

Lamela has been one of our best performers this season and should return to the starting XI against Wolves.

Son Heung-min (RAM)

The South Korean is on fire, at least for now, and should start after his brace against the Hammers.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane was another star rested in the Carabao Cup fixture but the Englishman should return to the starting XI on Saturday.

Tottenham face competition from PSG for this 24-year-old Premier League defender

Published

Eric Bailly

Tottenham face additional competition for the signing of Manchester United defender Eric Bailly, according to the Daily Mail (h/t Express).

The United defender has been linked with a move to Spurs (h/t Express), however, the report claims that Paris Saint-Germain want to sign the 24-year-old.

The Ivorian hasn’t seen much playing time for United this season with only four starts to his name. His last game for the club was the 3-2 win over Newcastle United which came over a month ago.

The defender could be a quality addition to the side but Mauricio Pochettino has to work with Bailly to get the best out of him.

It has been a sapping time for the 24-year-old at United and the report adds that Spurs were tipped to sign the player having not signed anyone in the summer window.

The report adds that the United chiefs are set to meet to discuss the Ivorian’s situation. It will be interesting to see if United are willing to let go of the player, especially to a Premier League rival.

Tottenham are five points behind Manchester City after 12 games and face Chelsea one we return to Premier League action in a week’s time.

Mauricio Pochettino pictured at Barcelona watching youth game during break

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was busy during the international break as he was pictured watching a Barca B game recently.

Our next game is against Chelsea after the break is over, but it seems Pochettino wanted to keep an eye out for future talents from the Catalan side.

A report from Sky Sports adds that the gaffer and his coaching staff, Toni Jimenez and Jesus Perez, would be travelling to Barcelona for a conference to represent the Catalan Football Federation.

The Argentine was quoted (h/t Sky Sports) saying:

“The Catalan Federation asked us to go there and talk with the Catalan coaches, and I think it is a great opportunity to share, and explain how the Premier League is and Tottenham.”

Spanish reports (h/t Sky Sports) claim Pochettino could have been at the game to scout some Barcelona players.

Sky Sports adds that Spurs were interested in Barca B star Riqui Puig, who did play in the match Pochettino saw.

The manager knows the Spanish league well from his time at Espanyol, and given the history between Barcelona and his former employers, it will be interesting to see if we do snap someone up from the Catalan giants.

“It is definitely possible” – Harry Kane believes he can break this record for England

Harry Kane

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has Wayne Rooney’s record in sight as England prepare to face Croatia during the international break.

The former Manchester United striker played his last England game in our 3-0 win over the United States. Rooney ended his international career with 53 goals from 120 games.

Kane, for his part, has 19 goals for the Three Lions and was asked if he could break Rooney’s scoring record (h/t BT Sport).

“It is definitely possible.

“It is still a fair bit away, I don’t like to set my targets that far ahead in the future because a lot can happen.

“We will see over the years how many goals I have got. Hopefully I will still be fit and healthy and getting selected by the manager.

“It is achievable but not something I’m thinking about too much right now.”

Harry Kane Tottenham

The clash against Croatia would be a repeat of the World Cup semi which England lost. A win over the Croatians would send England into the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League but the away side will come with a lot of confidence.

Croatia defeated Spain in their last game, and Gareth Southgate has to be wary of the threat from the away side.
