Predicted Wolves XI to face Everton tonight

Wolverhampton Wanderers face Everton in their penultimate game of the 2020/21 Premier League season – and fans, even if only a small number, are finally back.

The game will take place at Goodison Park, and Wolves are looking to bounce back from defeat against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

It’s another fairly quick turnaround, so it’s likely there will be a number of changes.

Rui Patricio will keep his place, and in front of him there could be a return to the side for Willy Boly, who Nuno Espirito Santo said today is doing much better after struggling with Covid-19 after effects.

The £10 million defender (BBC Sport) could partner Conor Coady who was superb against Spurs, with Rayan Ait-Nouri and Nelson Semedo as the full-backs in a back four.

In midfield, £50,000-a-week star Ruben Neves (Spotrac) could be rotated back in in place of Leander Dendoncker, and there could be starts for Joao Moutinho and Vitinha.

In attack, Morgan Gibbs-White could again start having looked promising in recent weeks, with Adama Traore on the opposite flank. It could be that the duo interchange throughout the game.

It really is crunch time for him if he wants to earn a permanent move to Molineux, and Nuno could give him the chance to stake a final claim against the Toffees and also Manchester United on Sunday.

The Brazilian could really do with a goal or two, as it currently feels like he’ll be heading back to Real Sociedad.
