Nuno Espírito Santo or Peri-Peri Pulis as a West Brom fan I know likes to call him will have his work cut out this evening. Wolves in the cup is one matter, but Arsenal in the Premier League at the weekend won’t make life any easier.
Steven Bergwijn is out with an aggravated ankle injury, is out for tonight, and will have to be assessed ahead of the weekend. Ryan Sessegnon’s injury is listed as ‘other’ and he still has no return date. Lucas Moura is also sidelined with an ankle/foot injury and also has no return date.
For Wolves, Jonny Castro Otto is out – after knee surgery. Pedro Lomba Neto is also seeing a specialist about his knee, and Hugo Bueno is still nursing a thigh/hamstring injury, according to Premier Injuries.com
The bookies see little between the two sides, with the hosts being 6/4 and Tottenham at 7/4; the draw is 2/1.
