Nuno Espirito Santo could recall Jonny Otto to left-back ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon, meaning Ruben Vinagre could miss out.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Tottenham?
John Ruddy, Max Kilman, Ryan Bennett, Ruben Vinagre, Oskar Burr, Patrik Cutrone and Pedro Netro started ahead of Rui Patricio, Romain Saiss, Jonny Otto, Matt Doherty, Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota as Wolves thrashed Besiktas 4-0 on Thursday, but Nuno could turn to his Premier League XI.
Vinagre started at wing-back against Besiktas in midweek, playing a full 90 minutes at Molineux, so he could be afforded a rest against Spurs. Jonny has been a regular at left-back ahead of the 20-year-old this season, making 15 league appearances from a possible 16 so far, but he’s often been given a break during Wolves’ European excursions.
The 25-year-old was an unused substitute in his side’s 2-1 win over Slovan Bratislava (October 24), played just one minute in the 1-0 winning return fixture (November 7) and was omitted from the squad entirely on Thursday. Otto has amassed 1270 minutes from a possible 1440, however, so he’s in contention of getting his place back.
