Forwards and Formation
Harry Kane leads the attack, as always.
The big question is whether Dele Alli retains his position in support of Tottenham’s gunslinger. For me, it’s an unequivocal yes. While slightly fortuitous on Tottenham’s goal against Leeds, Dele’s incisive, albeit deflected, pass found a way through to Sonny, who finished with aplomb. Dele was also influential on Kane’s phantom offside goal.
Yes, there were times Dele didn’t track back. He was slightly lazy in periods of the match. However, at times he did his utmost to pressure Leeds’ defenders when they were on the ball. He’s not in the team to defend. That responsibility falls on the Tottenham’s back four, Hojberg and, to a lesser extent, Lo Celso.
So let’s see what Tottenham’s dynamic quartet have in store for Wolves at home. A more expansive pitch should allow Tottenham to play on the front foot, a setting conducive to a fluid and enterprising style of attack. Doherty and Davies can stay put, negating any chance of Wolves’ counter.
What, if anything, would you change about this starting side?
