Wolverhampton Wanderers are in Premier League action against Leeds United tonight.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side returned to winning ways last weekend with Pedro Neto’s excellent goal against Southampton sealing all three points down on the south coast.

That saw the Wanderers leapfrog the Saints in the table, and they can do the very same thing to Leeds with a win over the Whites at Molineux.

Last time out Wolves won 1-0 at Elland Road, and Marcelo Bielsa will no doubt be keen for a spot of revenge.

It promises to be a great game, with Leeds having been extremely unpredictable this season.

Rui Patricio will start his 25th game of the season between the sticks, and in front of him it’s probably quite likely there will be a back three/five.

Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Max Kilman might be the trio, with the latter having arguably put in his best display of the season at Elland Road.

 

Nelson Semedo and Jonny are surely in line to start as the wing-backs.

In midfield, Ruben Neves is the likeliest to start and then realistically it’s a question of Leander Dendoncker or Joao Moutinho.

Perhaps the Belgian would be the better bet to start, with £5 million man Moutinho (BBC Sport) to potentially go on as a substitute once Bielsa’s men start to tire in the second-half.

In attack, Pedro Neto and Adama Traore could well start on opposite flanks compared to usual following their showings in the second-half against Southampton.

Willian Jose will probably be preferred to Fabio Silva, with the Brazilian still searching for his first Wolves goal.

Potentially this will be a very difficult game, but victory over Southampton will hopefully have the pack feeling hungry.
