Wolves striker Raul Jimenez could make his first competitive appearance at Molineux in nine months after returning from a fractured skull last weekend.

Defensive duo Yerson Mosquera and Willy Boly remain out with hamstring injuries.

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo says he will make a decision on whether to field unsettled striker Harry Kane after Saturday's training session.

A host of regulars are set to return following the midweek European defeat.

LAWRO'S PREDICTION

This is a very early return to Molineux for Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo, and I think his old team will cause his new one a few problems.

Wolves lost at Leicester last time out, but I thought they played OK and they created a few chances. The big news was Raul Jimenez's return after serious injury, which was great to see.

Prediction: 1-1

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

Wolves' 1-0 Premier League win in 2010 is their only home victory against Tottenham in 10 meetings in all competitions.
Spurs have won four Premier League fixtures away to Wolves, a tally bettered only by Arsenal and Liverpool, who have both claimed five victories at Molineux.
Tottenham can win consecutive top-flight games against Wolves for the first time since 2004.
Wolves

Wolves have lost four consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since a run of six in 2017.
They could sustain defeat in their opening two league fixtures for just the second time in 36 seasons.
Wolves failed to win their opening home game in all three Premier League campaigns under Nuno Espirito Santo.
They are unbeaten in each of the last 33 Premier League matches in which they scored the opening goal (W28, D5).
Wolves could fail to score in their opening two league fixtures for the first time since 1978.
Raul Jimenez has scored in three of his four Premier League appearances against Spurs.
Tottenham Hotspur

Nuno Espirito Santo can become the fourth consecutive Spurs boss to win his first two Premier League matches.
However, Tottenham have won their opening two Premier League fixtures in only one of the past six seasons.
They have won just four of their previous 15 league away games (D5, L6) and two of the past 10 in which striker Harry Kane was missing.
Spurs' run of scoring in 16 successive matches is the longest current streak by any Premier League side.
Forward Son Heung-Min has scored six goals in his last seven Premier League appearances when Kane was absent.

We have a dynamic duo for the Man Utd game. Mike Dean as referee and last week’s ref Atwood on VAR

No chance of an impartial performance from the notorious Penited fan, Mike Dean.

Traore is clearly a player that divides opinion. To me, with Neto out for months, if we sell Traore we would have to have a phenomenal week in the transfer window to end up with a team or squad as good as we had last season when we finished 13th. We already need two quality signings to progress without selling him
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Agree with this to a degree. If we sold him early the fine, but now I have zero faith we would do anything good with the money with a week left.

The fixture list computer hasn't done us any favours this year has it?

Yeah it is a little sad that we are basically happy to throw away the first month of the season. Our bench right now is pretty laughable.

Yeah we have more strength in depth on the treatment tables than we do on the bench.

Ruddy
Boly
Mosquera
Hoever
Jonny
Ait-Nouri
Gibbs-White
Dendoncker
Neto
Podence
Silva

I don’t think we’ve got a bad squad when everyone is fit. And we did have the benefit of few injuries in our first two years in the top flight. But there is a bit more depth to the squad now too. Mosquera, Trincao and Ait Nouri have been good signings, and Hoever, Gibbs White and Fabio are more ready now than they were a year ago.

All we need is to retain Neves and Traore and add two more of a similar quality. Sounds easy dunnit

Communists are masters at subterfuge and selective censorship. Read the hottest post at molmix and you'll see (or begin to see) why I and others do not want Fosun running Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.

Karl Marx's funeral was the most miserable of affairs. He was a hateful, cold, bitter man that was given over to reprobation by the God he envied, receiving his penalty long before the Manifesto he influenced.
