Antonio Conte backed Eric Dier to become 'one of the best in the world' shortly after his arrival in north London, but has been unable to deploy the centre back since the winter hiatus. Medical advice prevented Conte calling upon the 'important player' in midweek but there is a possibility that he will be available following a thigh issue this weekend.

Oliver Skipp has been set the challenge of returning from a groin problem in half the time Tottenham's medical department predicted by his demanding manager. Either timescale, however, makes his involvement on Sunday unlikely.

Japhet Tanganga is also a doubt with a knee injury he suffered in Tottenham's third straight defeat to Chelsea last month.

Wolves team news

Long term absentees Pedro Neto and Willy Boly - two previously pivotal figures under Nuno Espirito Santo's reign - have returned to the grass but are still limited to training with physios rather than their teammates. Yerson Mosquera (thigh) has been placed on a similar recovery trajectory towards the end of February and beginning of March.

Joao Moutinho, the scorer of Wolves' last goal back in January, missed Thursday's defeat to another north London club with a minor issue Bruno Lage was decidedly vague about: "Let's see how he goes in the next couple of days."

Tottenham vs Wolves head-to-head record

Over more than a century of meetings, Tottenham come out clearly on top with 51 victories to Wolves' 29 (and 21 draws apiece).

However, in recent years the Midlands-based outfit have fared well against the capital side, particularly in London. Wolves have won half of their last six league trips to the various stadia Tottenham have called home during this time span.

In fact, Wolves are one of only four teams to have beaten Spurs in the Premier League at White Hart Lane, Wembley and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham vs Wolves score prediction

Despite coming into the contest on the back of consecutive Premier League defeats, the improvement Conte has overseen from the timid shell of a side he inherited is undeniable.

Lage - another Espirito Santo replacement - has also built upon the foundations laid by his compatriot. However, Wolves' lack of a goal threat doesn't bode well against a Spurs side that is a bit leaky at the back but reinvigorated going forward.

Prediction: Tottenham 1-0 Wolves
