Pablo Sarabia gets new role as midfielder dropped - Wolves predicted XI gallery v Tottenham

Here’s how we predict Wolverhampton Wanderers’ starting lineup to look against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers return to home soil for the first time in two weeks on Saturday afternoon as they play host to Champions League chasers Tottenham Hotspur. Without a victory in their last three Premier League matches, Wolves will be keen to get back to winning ways at Molineux.

It won’t be easy, though, as Spurs have been in brilliant form of late, with four wins in five. Antonio Conte’s absence has certainly been felt with a hiccup 4-1 defeat to Leicester City and a shock FA Cup exit against Sheffield United, but Tottenham look pretty dangerous for the most part.

Both teams come into the match fatigued from midweek fixtures so there could be quite a few changes made. There were also some injury troubles that emerged on Wednesday, with Hugo Bueno taken off with a hamstring problem for Wanderers and Harry Kane sitting out with “a lack of fitness” for Spurs.

With that in mind, here is the slightly rotated starting XI we think Julen Lopetegui will go with on Saturday afternoon – in a 4-3-3 formation.
