Wolves will be looking to return to winning ways when they host a wounded Tottenham side this weekend in the league.

Wolves had won their last two home games before surprisingly losing to Bournemouth at the Molineux.

They then got deservedly beaten by Liverpool in midweek and now find themself needing a big response against Spurs this weekend who are still without manager Antonio Conte.

Left-back Hugo Bueno who picked up a knock against Liverpool was expected to return for the home game against Tottenham but Julen Lopetegui will have to do without him after scans confirmed he was going to be out for a while.

Matheus Cunha is also still missing with his ankle injury while Malian Boubacar Traore is some way behind being involved in team training.

Matheus Cunha, who picked up a groin injury against Fulham is back in training and could be on the bench against Spurs.

He’s missed games against Bournemouth and Liverpool and so having him will be a massive lift to the team.

Striker Hwang Hee-chan is also making progress but the game against Tottenham will come quite early for him. The South Korean was looking really good when Lopetegui came in before picking up his injury.

Wolves have marginally improved since Lopetegui walked in but they face Spurs who have been wounded by the FA exit and will need to appease fuming fans in the league.

Tottenham have been good in the league and will look strength their grip top with a win away having beaten Chelsea 2-0 last weekend.

Harry Kane was partly rested for the FA Cup defeat to Sheffield so he should be fresh for this one.
