Wolverhampton Wanderers team news: Key man out of Spurs clash

Champions League hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers will square off against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Both teams will be eyeing victory during the game in order to bolster their chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

The two sides last met  in the league at Molineux in December and the game was won 2-1 by the Lilywhites with Lucas Moura and Jan Vertonghen scoring for them. Adama Traore was the scorer for Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will have to make do without the services of wing-back Jonny for their game against Spurs according to BBC Sport. 

The 25-year-old had to leave the field whilst playing against Norwich City last weekend.

Wolves  beat Spurs 3-1 during their last away league clash against them at Wembley in December 2018. If they win Sunday’s clash, they would have claimed consecutive away victories against the North London side for the first time in history.

Wolves will go into the game as the slight favourites due to Spurs injury problems. Jose Mourinho’s side will have to make do without the services of key players Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.

Nuno’s side can be confident in terms of containing Spurs defence. Willy Boly has been exceptional in defence for Wolves this season with his side to conceding just one goal in the last six games which he has played in.

Wolves have also kept three consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League and they can be confident of securing their fourth as Spurs attack will not be at its best.
