Some Wolves fans have suggested Nuno Espirito Santo should look to get Owen Otasowie into the starting XI against Arsenal.
The USA midfielder has been handed four appearances in the Premier League so far, and has caught the eye.
He’s only had one start against Burnley, with the other three appearances coming as a substitute.
The star has been unable to force his way into the starting XI and stay there, with Nuno preferring the likes of Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho.
There is also Vitinha and Morgan Gibbs-White in there for competition which makes life difficult for the talented youngster.
With Wolves really struggling at the moment, it is definitely not out of the question that the manager will look to shake things up.
It’s eight games without a win in the league and surely something has got to give.
On social media, the name of Otasowie has been thrown around quite a lot following the defeat to Crystal Palace.
It seems that quite a few want to see the star in from the start against the Gunners, with several people keen to see him featuring in a three along with Neves and Dendoncker:
Nothing to lose.
For example, Otasowie has looked very strong in centre midfield for me when we had a chance…
I’d also seriously consider putting Ruddy between the sticks.

Otasowie has to start for me. He’s shown bags of energy when he’s come on. Can tackle, run with the ball and gets in the box. #wwfc

When we went to a four we scored goals, put Kilman and Boly together in a back four with Otasowie on the cover and we will outscore teams. He wont do that and he wont drop his favourites in Moutinho and Coady. We have a proper striker to put away the chances we created in a four.

I don’t think Vitinha is ready for the No10 role though?
Maybe if we played Neves and Donk and give Otasowie the role/ box to box? I do think 4231 is the way forward.

Otasowie and Neves in CM for me.

Would rather give Otasowie a run in midfield than play him in there. Get a CENTRE BACK thats more important https://t.co/sAkbTHShCA
