Title hopes have taken a step in the backward direction for the North London club and Jose will rely on his star duo of Kane & Son to secure all the three points at Molineux.
Wolves will have to continue without their star forward Raul Jimenez as he continues to receive treatment for his fractured skull while Johnny & Leander Dendoncker are unlikely to be available for selection.
As for the Lilywhites, Japhet Tanganga is definitely out with a shoulder problem while Giovani Lo Celso will also be out of the fixture due to the thigh issue that he picked up against Leicester. Four time UEFA Champions League winner Gareth Bale will most likely miss this match due a calf injury, he suffered in the first half of the clash with Stoke City.
