Tottenham are in the Premier League for the first time this season when it comes to the Wolves on Sunday.
Winners in their first game of the campaign, beating Masters Man City 1-0 in N17, will seek to continue their winning momentum and stay at the top of the league.
In the encounter at Molineux, Nuno Espirito Santo returns to his former club for the first time since leaving Wolves in May.
Undoubtedly, the Spurs boss will get an excellent reception in front of the home fans. He hopes his new players will shut up Wolves believers full-time on Sunday afternoon.
So who will he choose on his team against the wolves? Our Tottenham reporters at football.london named the side they would choose at Molineux.
Alasdair Gold – Tottenham Hotspur correspondent
Nuno Espirito Santo won’t be interested in splitting a winning side when Tottenham heads to the Wolves.
While a provisional Spurs team lost in the Europa Conference League mid-week, the starting line-up that started when they beat Manchester City will be fresh and ready for this game.
Espirito Santos co-head coach Ian Cathro stayed with them on Hotspur Way to prepare them for the game.
With all this preparation, it seems unlikely that the returning Spurs boss will make any changes to this page.
The only temptation might be to bring on Cristian Romero but after his first 90 minutes in more than six weeks from his knee injury, Espirito Santo could decide this Premier League game is early.
Gold’s team: Lloris, Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Skipp, Hojbjerg, Alli; Lucas, son, Bergwijn.
Rob Guest – Tottenham Hotspur reporter
Nuno Espirito Santo has a relatively easy decision to make when it comes to his Tottenham team taking on the Wolves as few who were involved in Thursday’s defeat to Pacos de Ferreira took their chance.
Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez deserve to start again as center-backs after an excellent performance against Man City. Cristian Romero hasn’t done enough in the Europa Conference League to really push the duo.

Giovani Lo Celso had the opportunity to plead for a place at Molineux but he just didn’t use it, leaving Dele Alli to continue with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Son Heung-min in midfield.
Harry Kane is back in training and could well add to the coach’s deliberations to start this weekend.
However, it may be best to put him back into action from the bench first as it would be incredibly tough for Lucas Moura or Steven Bergwijn to miss him after thrilling at home against Man City
Guest team: Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Skipp, Hojbjerg, Alli; Lucas, son, Bergwijn
