Wolves are facing Brighton in the Premier League tonight, and some fans have wondered if Fabio Silva could get a rare start.

After narrowly losing 1-0 to both Liverpool and Manchester City, Bruno Lage is looking for a response at the Amex Stadium.

Tonight’s game is a great opportunity for Wolves to get back on track.

Brighton have been very good this season.

But they have a number of players unavailable for the game, so Wolves have got to capitalise.

Wolves only have a few absentees. Pedro Neto, Yerson Mosquera and Jonny Castro Otto are all still sidelined with injury.

But Raul Jimenez is also unavailable after getting sent off against Manchester City.

So Lage will be forced into a change up top – and some people have wondered if Fabio Silva might finally get a chance against Brighton.

The teenage striker has not started in the Premier League all season.

He got the nod against Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup. But chances have been few and far between for the youngster.

It has certainly been a difficult time for him, and tonight’s team selection will be very interesting.

As the only other natural centre-forward in the squad, Silva should be replacing Jimenez up top.

But Lage has shown a real reluctance to use him thus far.

Wolves fans discuss whether Fabio Silva should start against Brighton

On social media, some Wolves fans have been discussing tonight’s game and whether £90,000-a-week star Silva could get a rare start.

When Jimenez didn’t start against Aston Villa earlier in the season, Lage went with Hwang Hee-chan and Adama Traore in a partnership.

There’s a reasonable chance he could do that again.

Here’s what some fans said about the possibility of Silva starting:
