Adrian Clarke looks at key tactical points ahead of Matchweek 28.
Which formation should the head coach go with in north London?
Both front men played superbly, and scored, in a resounding 3-0 success at home against Norwich City.
That system also inspired this season’s fabulous 2-0 win at Manchester City.
However, it forces Nuno to leave out his lightning-quick winger Adama Traore, who was introduced last weekend only in the 72nd minute.
So, does Nuno stick with his strike partnership, or revert to 3-4-2-1?
Over the course of the campaign Wolves have been better with two attacking midfielders offering support to Jimenez as a lone striker.
Jota’s previous three goals were all scored in that set-up, and the Portuguese is very comfortable floating in from the left to link play with the leading scorer.
Changing a winning strategy is not ideal but for this crucial match it is likely the Jota-Traore-Jimenez trio will be unleashed on Spurs.
With Willy Boly also back in the side providing a solid foundation, it would surprising if Wolves do not go back to the 3-4-2-1 shape that has been most successful for them this season.
Part 1: Van Aanholt key to positive Palace approach
