Tottenham vs Wolves
Tottenham are set to face off with Wolves on Sunday afternoon.
Heading into the game, Wolves have essentially nothing to play for, sitting 12th in the Premier League table, clear of the relegation scrap but also well adrift of the European battle.
Spurs, on the other hand, are still firmly in the hunt to secure a Europa League spot.
The Lilywhites sit 7th in the English top-flight ahead of the weekend’s games. However, they are only clear of 8th on goal difference and just two points adrift of 6th, meaning the north Londoners cannot really afford to drop any points this weekend.
Securing a positive result may prove easier said than done, though, as Wolves have lost just once in their last five outings. Spurs, on the other hand, fell to a 3-1 defeat to Leeds last time out.
Ryan Mason on Ben Davies
Ahead of Sunday’s game, Ryan Mason spoke to the media on Friday afternoon.
When doing so, the interim Tottenham boss discussed a number of topics, including injuries and fitness.
First, it was confirmed that Ben Davies is unlikely to feature again this season, before Mason revealed his belief that Spurs’ squad is sufficiently fit to see out the season’s run-in:
#thfc Mason says he would “be surprised” if Ben Davies plays again this season but says too early to make a call on the Euros. Mason also dismissed suggestions that the squad is unfit – “Fitness isn’t at issue for our group at all.”

Nuno Espirito Santo also spoke to the media on Friday, and had the following to say regarding his squad:
“We have some players coming back, we have some problems. It’s the end of the season and we have to be very careful with our decisions. “We have to realise our players have to compete in the national teams, (so need to avoid playing) too much.”
