Wolverhampton Wanderers will finally take to the field again tonight after what has felt like an eternity.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face West Ham United at Molineux in the Premier League and are looking to exact revenge on the Irons for the 4-0 demolition job back in September.

It was an awful night in London, with Jarrod Bowen scoring twice, Raul Jimenez scoring an own goal and Sebastien Haller adding insult to injury in the dying embers.

It’s going to be another tough game, with the Hammers having made huge strides under David Moyes this season.

£16 million man Rui Patricio (BBC Sport) is set to keep his 100% record of starting games this term in the Premier League going, having fully recovered from the head injury sustained in a collision with Conor Coady against Liverpool.

In front of him, there will likely be a back three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss, with Nelson Semedo and Jonny the wing-backs.


In midfield, Joao Moutinho is a doubt heading into the game and could potentially miss out.

That could and probably will likely mean a central midfield partnership of Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker.

Following an impressive international break, it would be great to see Vitinha given a chance, although it’s probable the manager will persist with Adama Traore despite the Spaniard’s recent form.

Pedro Neto will surely start, and Willian Jose could get the nod over Fabio Silva.
