The Spurs players and backroom staff including Cristian Stellini have arrived at Molineux ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The north Londoners are still without head coach Antonio Conte, who is expected to return to his duties at Hotspur Way from tomorrow after spending just over the last two weeks back in Italy to continue his recovery from gallbladder removal surgery.

Stellini said to Football.London during yesterday’s pre-match press conference: “I said he would come back this week and straight after the match against Wolves he will be in London and will be in charge again from Sunday.

“When pushed about why the Italian is returning a day later than today’s match, he added: This is a question for the medical department because they decide the time schedule was one month.

“One month after the surgery stops on Saturday and they ask Antonio to come back on Sunday so this is a question for the medical department.

Spurs are looking to dust themselves off following Wednesday evening’s disappointing FA Cup fifth round exit at the hands of Championship side Sheffield United and will be looking to take all three points to keep themselves in contention for a top four finish.

Among the players spotted arriving at the stadium were Harry Kane and Clement Lenglet.
