Wolves travel to face Leeds United at Elland Road today looking to make it four straight Premier League wins.
Here is a look at three questions which will be on Bruno Lage’s mind ahead of the clash with Marcelo Bielsa’s side…
Does he change system?
Lage left Raul Jimenez on the bench against Aston Villa last time around, and switched to a 3-5-2.
He explained that he started Leander Dendoncker to run off the home midfield, but the obvious choice this weekend would be to drop the Belgian for Jimenez.
That would see Wolves move back to 3-4-3. Francisco Trincao is also back in contention, which may influence Lage’s decision as well.
How do Wolves match Leeds’ energy?
Leeds are one of the fittest teams in the league and play a man-marking system which provides unique challenges.
The midfield pairing of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho may prove a bit too pedestrian against the hard running of Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
That said, Lage may decide that keeping the ball and keeping Leeds running is the way to go and Moutinho’s experience would be key for that approach.
Can Wolves start faster?
Wolves were on the back foot before that staggering comeback last weekend.
They need to start quickly against a hard-running Leeds side looking for a second win of the season.
Kalvin Phillips is a big miss for the hosts, and so is Patrick Bamford. Confidence could be low in the home ranks and Wolves can take advantage if they start better than they did at Villa Park.
