Brave attacking choice as Gary O’Neil axes ‘sloppy’ defender - Wolves predicted XI vs Tottenham - gallery

Here’s how we predict Wolverhampton Wanderers to line up against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers return to Molineux this weekend as they play host to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. Kicking off at half past midday on Saturday, Wolves will be eager to take advantage of a stricken Tottenham side that was hit for four by Chelsea on Monday.

Ange Postecoglou has done a tremendous job to win eight of his first 11 league matches in charge but fresh injuries to James Maddison and Micky van de Ven could change Spurs' fortunes. Suspensions for Destiny Udogie and Cristian Romero certainly don't help their case, either.

Wolves won't be complaining as it has now become arguably the best time of the season so far to play Tottenham. Gary O'Neil's side are in good form on home soil, too, with five points out of nine against Manchester City, Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

The Old Gold suffered a surprise defeat to Sheffield United last time out and we think O'Neil will respond by changing back to a defensive three. We also reckon there could be a couple of brave switches in midfield and attack. With that in mind, here's our predicted XI for Saturday.
