Tottenham are in pole position for a top-four finish but they need to maintain their consistency if they are to secure a Champions League berth for next season.

They host a tricky Wolves side that have had a strong campaign under Gary O’Neil but have lost two of their last three games.

Ben Davies could set a Tottenham record after Ange Postecoglou’s injury update

Ben Davies is set for a return to the starting XI against Wolves this weekend.

This is after the news broke that both Destiny Udogie and Pedro Porro will miss this weekend’s game against Wolves, with manager Ange Postecoglou saying:

“Destiny picked up a knock last week and he’s not available for tomorrow, but I don’t think it’s anything too serious. “Pedro picked up a strain in training, probably a couple of weeks for him. With game break hopefully he doesn’t miss too many.”

“The structure won’t change and the way we set up won’t change but different players bring different attributes. Pedro and Destiny have been outstanding for us this year. “It doesn’t change the way we play but I think I’ve said in the past a player brings their own sort of unique ability to each position.”

After filling in at CB in Micky van de Ven’s absence before Christmas, the Welshman is now set to return to his favoured position at left-back and could also set a new club record. He currently sits on 16 Premier League assists for the club alongside Danny Rose and if he was to provide another assist this weekend, he would overtake his former teammate and become the defender with the most assists for Tottenham in Premier League history.

Team news

Tottenham are set to be without Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessegnon, who are both long-term absentees, while Giovani Lo Celso is a doubt. It will also have to be all change at full-back for Spurs, after Ange Postecoglou confirmed that both Destiny Udogie and Pedro Porro would miss this weekend’s game.

Wolves’ Matheus Cunha suffered a major hamstring injury last time out and could miss the remainder of the season, while O’Neil is also sweating on a late fitness test for Hwang Hee-Chan.

Predicted XIs for both teams

Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Emerson, Romero, Van de Ven, Davies; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison.

Wolves (3-4-2-1): Sa; Toti, Dawson, Kilman; Semedo, Lemina, Gomes, Ait-Nouri; Sarabia, Neto; Hwang.
