Wolves winger Diogo Jota will miss tomorrow's clash with Tottenham – a team Nuno Espirito Santo admires but does not fear.

The 22-year-old is ruled out through an injury which Nuno did not specify.

He did confirm, though, everybody else is fit for the Molineux encounter against Mauricio Pochettino's charges who have the best away record in the Premier League, having won five and lost one on the road.

Nuno is under no illusions over the task at hand but not fazed by it.

"I know that they are very strong opposition," he said.

"We are conscious that we are going to face one of the best teams in the league, there is no doubt about it.

"The quality of the manager, the quality of the squad – Tottenham are very, very strong.

"I admire Mauricio because of the quality of the work they've been doing. It's amazing.

"The core of the squad, the amount of success they've had – success can not only be measured in titles – and there is no doubt Tottenham play very attractive, organised football.


"What I admire is what I see on the pitch, that reflects a very good coach.

"The statistic that I see is that they are the best team away from home in the league. That tells us a lot about what we will face.

"But we are not worried. We are conscious of the reality we will face but we want to play.

"We want to maintain our high standards against the best teams in the league."
