Tottenham team news: striker making good progress, attacker to feature as sub

Tottenham Hotspur team news ahead of their clash with Wolves on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur have been given some positive injury news surrounding Harry Kane, ahead of their clash with Wolves on Sunday.

The Spurs striker is making good progress, as reported by BBC Sport, as he looks to return from a hamstring injury that threatened to end his season.

While Kane won’t feature for Tottenham against Wolves, supporters will be delighted to hear that their talisman is nearing full fitness sooner rather than later.

Jose Mourinho is still without another influential figure in Son Heung-min, as the attacking midfielder is set to miss out for a number of weeks after fracturing his arm.

Also on the Tottenham injury list are Juan Foyth, Ryan Sessegnon and Moussa Sissoko, although there is some positive news ahead of the visit of Wolves.

Erik Lamela should make the substitutes bench despite being hampered by an injury himself, with Mourinho able to call on the attacker if needed.

Spurs have won three of their last four Premier League fixtures heading into Sunday’s clash, as they were beaten by Chelsea last weekend.

During that period Tottenham did overcome Manchester City, picking up an impressive 2-0 home victory of the reigning champions.

Wolves have only beaten Spurs once in their last seven league meetings, as they came away from Wembley with a 3-1 win last season.

Tottenham are on the verge of winning three consecutive home games in the league for the first time this season, but they do face a side that have a great record in the capital of late.

Since their promotion to the top flight in 2018, Wolves are unbeaten in all eight of their visits to London and will be confident of coming away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a positive result.

Spurs are currently four points adrift of the top four, with their opponents hot on their heels just a point behind, so Mourinho’s men can’t afford many more slip ups if they are to retain their place in the Champions League.
