Wolves predicted XI to face Leeds United tonight

Wolves face Leeds United tonight in the Premier League and are looking to make it three wins on the spin.

After some rough results and performances, Wanderers bounced back last week by beating Watford and Everton.

The two victories have seen Wolves just about keep within touching distance of the teams above them.

Currently, the club are five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, although the Gunners do have two games in hand.

Wolves are giving themselves a chance, and need to beat Leeds to keep the momentum going.

It could be a tough game. The Whites are scrapping for survival down at the bottom, and they got their first win under Jesse Marsch last weekend.

Marsch was very complimentary about Wolves yesterday in his press conference, and clearly respects Bruno Lage.

He’ll definitely want to do a number on his counterpart, and it should be a cracking game at Molineux.

Predicted Wolves XI to face Leeds

Jose Sa will go in search of his 12th clean sheet of the season, but Lage may well make a change to his three-man defence.

Romain Saiss has played a lot of football this season. He could benefit from a rest here against the tireless Leeds.

He might not be the best choice to face Raphinha, and so Willy Boly might come in on the left side for only his second Premier League start, with Max Kilman and Conor Coady in their usual positions.

Jonny Casto Otto will likely keep his place on the right, and Lage might bring in Rayan Ait-Nouri for Fernando Marcal.

Like Saiss, Marcal can sometimes be rash. He might not be the best choice to deal with Raphinha, who plays from that right side.

Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves could continue as a pairing in the even that Hwang Hee-chan is fully fit to play.

The South Korean went off early against Everton, but he has been back in training ahead of the game.

If he is good to go, Lage could deploy him in attack with £17 million man Daniel Podence and Raul Jimenez.

If he isn’t, it could be Leander Dendoncker coming in to make up a three-man midfield. Either that, or one of Francisco Trincao or Chiquinho replaces Hwang directly.

Wolves (3-4-3): Sa/Kilman, Coady, Boly/Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri/Hwang, Jimenez, Podence.
