How Will Nuno Espirito Santo and Bruno Lage do at Tottenham and Wolves?

On May 21st, after 4 largely successful years Nuno Espirito Santo and Wolves decided to part ways. But Wolves' loss is Tottenham's gain. However, it took Tottenham 72 days to hire Espirito Santo and he wasn't their first choice after deals with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso fell through.

Wolves' search was far less dramatic, hiring ex-Benfica manager Bruno Lage. Today we ask: how will both managers do at their new jobs and are they good fits?
