Tottenham defender Juan Foyth can right a wrong against Wolves

Dom Toner

Tottenham host Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League and will be looking to close the gap to leaders Liverpool.

Spurs are currently second in the table after winning eight of their last nine league fixtures and look in brilliant form.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino does have defender Davinson Sanchez back available for selection following his injury problems, but should resist recalling him against Wolves.

Spurs youngster Juan Foyth should get the opportunity to exorcise his demons, as he had a day to forget on his Premier League debut earlier this season against Wolves.

Foyth is still a highly-rated defender that appears to be going from strength to strength every time he plays and has now featured six times in the league.

The Argentinian is a ball-playing centre-back and it could be a smart piece of management from Pochettino to give his youngster a chance to perform well against Wolves.

He looked comfortable in the 5-0 win over Bournemouth on Boxing Day alongside Toby Alderweireld and the same centre-back pairing should take to the Wembley pitch against Wolves in what would be a huge vote of confidence.

Spurs do face Cardiff City just days later on 1 January and reintegrating Sanchez on that fixture would make perfect sense.
