Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is set to make a number of changes as he takes his team to Molineux to face Wolves.

The former Manchester United coach decided to rest several first-team stars for the trip to Germany on Wednesday, with Spurs eventually losing 3-1 to Bayern Munich.

Spurs were already through to the knockout stages before kick-off and Mourinho is now set to revert to the team that cruised past Burnley.

Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane should all return after helping their team beat Burnley 5-0. Midfielder Harry Winks is close to returning from injury, but Tanguy Ndombele is a doubt and will need to pass a fitness test to feature.

Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo is set to follow a similar plan after his side beat Besiktas 4-0 in the Europa League on Thursday.

Rui Patricio, Romain Saiss, Matt Doherty, Jonny, Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez were rested for the game at Molineux and should return to the starting XI. Nuno has no new injury woes to worry about as Wolves look to move closer to the top four.

The Midlands outfit are sixth heading into the weekend, and they are five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Nuno’s men are unbeaten in their last nine games and they could move four points ahead of Tottenham if they win. Spurs’ title hopes may be over, but Mourinho claims they will still be competitive this season under his management.

Spurs are 23 points behind league leaders Liverpool, but they have scored nine goals in their last three Premier League matches.

Wolves have failed to win any of their last five meetings with Spurs and the latter have good form when they travel north to Molineux. Spurs are unbeaten in their last three visits to the famous venue, including last year’s exciting 3-2 win.
