Tottenham to be without three key players for Wolves Premier League game as squad is revealed

Ange Postecoglou has been speaking about his squad ahead of their game against Wolves.

Tottenham will be without Fraser Forster who manager Ange Postecoglou says will need around two months to get back into training after suffering a knock in training. 

He will join Destiny Udogie and the relentless Pedro Porro as players who will be missing the game against Wolves later today. Spurs are brilliantly well coached and drilled by Postecoglou but missing his first-choice full-backs is another test for the Lilywhites.

Postecoglou confirmed Fraser would be out for long in his press conference ahead of the game: "Probably the major one for us is Fraser Forster – got a knock in training, got a fracture in his foot. He’ll probably miss conservatively a couple of months. They are the main three. Coming back, nothing from last week. Everyone is available."

On Udogie and Porro the Spurs boss appeared more hopeful even though he confirmed they ruled out of this game: "We’ve had a couple of setbacks this week. Destiny [Udogie] obviously picked up a little bit of a knock last week. Not available for tomorrow, don’t think it is anything too serious. With no game next weekend, he should be back. Pedro [Porro] picked up a strain at training. Again, probably a couple of weeks for him. With the game break hopefully, he doesn’t miss too many." 

Tottenham vs Wolves picks

Spurs have won five successive top-flight home games coming into this one while Wolves have won three of the past four top-flight meetings, although two of those victories have come at Molineux.

Son Heung-min has been directly involved in nine goals in his past eight top-flight appearances, with four goals and five assists with the Lilywhites are determined to finish in the top four of the Premier League table.

Tottenham expected team: Vicario; Dragusin, Van de Ven, Romero, Davies; Bissouma, Sarr; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison
