Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been discussing today’s Premier League match with Leicester City.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face the Foxes at Molineux and are hoping to build on their badly needed victory against Arsenal earlier this week.
The 2-1 win brought to an end a winless run that had stretched to eight matches, and the relief was palpable at the final whistle on Tuesday.
Today’s clash with Leicester has the potential to be much more difficult than the game against the Gunners.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have wowed this season and currently sit third in the table.
They’re in a fight to finish in the Champions League places, and are definitely one of the most dangerous outfits in the league.
They’re a team with pace and invention, and Wolves will need everyone at the races if they are to take three points.
There has been a particular focus on which players Nuno should be selecting in defence, given Leicester’s potential to rip teams apart.
Max Kilman has come back into the team in recent weeks, and against Arsenal he featured as a left-back due to injuries to Rayan Ait-Nouri, Fernando Marcal and Romain Saiss, with Jonny not yet match fit.
Although he grew into the game, he never appeared totally comfortable and some fans think playing him there against the Foxes could be asking for trouble:

No. He’s a cracking CD but no lb or LWB he just doesn’t have the pace for the role. Has to be semedo and hoever at rwb imo.

With who’s available I’d move Semedo over and play Hoover RB. Kilman is not a full back and looked totally uncomfortable and vulnerable for the whole game. #wwfc

Not a left back, was caught out too many times. I really like him as a CB though we have players who can play as LB let’s stop using square pegs for round holes.

Nope, looked uncomfortable and will damage his confidence. Think Semedo is the only option.

No. No slight on Max, v good at CB, but I’d go Semedo on left and Hoever at RB.

Quite simply no

Kilman struggles with fast players on the sidelines
