I say Conte will shake up Spurs and replace the flat duo from the Chelsea clash with much brighter sparks

By Harry Hotspur -

Tottenham hosts Wolves early doors tomorrow, and all eyes will be on Spurs to assert themselves convincingly over the West Midlanders, who they’ve beaten 8 times in the last 16 Premier League meetings.

So far, this term, Wolves have been beaten by Leeds away and held to a goalless draw at home by Fulham. Primed for a hammering, by a free-scoring Spurs, surely?

Ryan Sessegnon and Dejan Kulusevski both struggled against the Blues last weekend. As wing-backs go, the Englishman made just one attacking-third pass, and the Swede gave us a reprise of his dull first-half showing against Southampton.

Of course, Antonio Conte may well view Wolves as easy pickings and stick with his preferred starting XI, but I take a view that we need to see far more of Richarlison, given the Brazilian’s eye-watering fee, and Ivan Perišić is surely guaranteed to add more wit and bite than Sessegnon.

We’ll have the confirmed team-sheets for you tomorrow morning at 1130am.

Line ups about right. I would also like to see Bissouma start over Benty…. Wolves look weaker without Coady at the back.

East Stand.

Kulusevski needs to step it up against the better teams. Ironically he’ll probably do alright against wolves.

Great post as always. The year of birth definitely adds gravitas and integrity to the graphic. Very modern.
It’s really difficult to predict Conte’s line up’s. He’s such a scatter brain. It could be anyone from a 100 different players. There doesn’t seem to be any consistency to anything that wild Italian does.
Hopefully you can fax this over in time for the game tomorrow so he can give us a fighting chance against Wolves. It’s worrying he needs his hand held so much.
Don’t know about you guys but I fail to see why Conte is our manager. What has he really achieved?
Just a typical, en vogue continental appointment.

More rubbish from a club that takes no direction from experts that are so easy to access. Will they ever learn? Probably not.

Apparently you won’t be satisfied until ENIC somehow pull off getting both Pep and Klopp to manage our first team at the same time.

Are you suggesting that Daniel Levy (ENIC) wants to pull off both Pep & Klopp at the same time?

Reminds me of when the great Una Stubbs on ‘Give Us A Clue’ pulled off 12 Angry Men in under 2 minutes

I think it will be the same team except Sanchez for Cuti. Conte likes consistency. Plus then he can bring on the older guys like Perisic and Doherty if we need goals, and Richy and Bissouma to shake things up. Maybe even get Tanganga or Skipp some minutes to shake the rust off.

Can you put in a decent cross and/or mark someone adequately on set pieces? If so, you may be on to something.

Why on earth aren’t we using Moura as first choice RWB now? Especially against teams that we won’t have to defend so intensely against (like City or Racist FC). Every time I see Royal’s name on the sheet I get a slight diarrhea.

If Perisic is 100%, he may start over Sessegnon, but I expect Kulu to start over Richarlison, given Richy’s ability to cover all three front positions. Does Bissouma start over either Hojberg or Bentancur? Again probably not, but is a great sub to be able to bring on if either are under par. Otherwise Sanchez for Cuti and the rest unchanged.

Would like to see bizzy start with Bentacur in midfield.

Wolves have played some really good football this season, they just can’t buy a goal. They were a bit of a handful for us last year too at our place so we’ll see if Conte has learned anything because I don’t think he learned a thing from how Chelsea set up against us last season. Most of us knew the battle in midfield was key and we got out thought, out fought and battered for large parts of the game.

Isn’t it good though to have decent options? Before Kulu we had Moura and Bergwijn as the second option. Now we have Kulu and Richarlison with Moura as a utility man aka Not good enough!

It was stated today that our newboy Destiny is one for the future, no doubt to go along with Fiddy Spence. I don’t mind this approach as long as we have good players for them to usurp. I was worried about Perisic’s pace on Sunday, or lack of it, so it will be interesting to see how he copes. Traore isn’t playing is he?

Probably jinxing it, but I say Son should sit this one out. Kulu at least contributed against Soton in the second half, while Son has looked off the pace in both games.

Oh and looking at that back 3…how far we’ve come, eh?

Conte had them both tucked in against he chavs in an attempt to get royal and sess space. Both got smothered mostly played backs to goal, not even on the half turn and Sess only got in the once and fluffed it. I’d like them to be given a chance to find some form and sharpness
