Spurs beat Manchester City in north London last Sunday to kick off their Premier League season with a bang, but a meek 1-0 defeat to Pacos de Ferreira in Europe saw, as Nuno Espirito Santo put it, the “feel-good factor disappear”.
That may be a tad hyperbolic given Nuno fielded a completely different starting XI to the one which saw off Man City, and Spurs will be a different animal on Sunday with the likes of Heung-min Son returning to the fold.
Harry Kane has travelled with the squad so his availability remains an option.
While the win over Pep Guardiola’s champions was undoubtedly a fine day for Spurs as they embark on a new era, Nuno’s return to Wolves may be a better test of where his new squad stand on their journey.

Wolves vs Tottenham team news
Given Spurs failed to land a shot on target in Portugal, it would be a shock to see any of that XI line up from the start at Molineux.
Cristian Romero has not travelled, though Bryan Gil and Ryan Sessegnon were bright and will be pushing for minutes from the bench.
Kane has travelled but expect Son to lead the line again for now. Tanguy Ndombele will miss out after being frozen out during pre-season despite no injury concerns.
As for Wolves, Daniel Podence, Jonny Castro Otto, Pedro, Yerson Mosquera, Hugo Bueno and Owen Otasowie are sidelined, and Willy Boly is expected to miss out with a hamstring strain.
Wolves vs Tottenham prediction
Wolves were narrowly beaten at Leicester last weekend, so it should prove to be a tight game once again for Bruno Lage’s men. A goal either way should be enough, but both teams would probably shake on a point right now.
Wolves 1-1 Spurs
