Wolves fans have been looking ahead to Friday night’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side missed out on three points against Newcastle United on Sunday, with Josh Murphy cancelling out Raul Jimenez’s strick with a late free-kick.

It was a disappointing result given the general lack of threat from the Magpies but given the crazy start to the new season, Wolves do actually sit just three points off top spot at the moment.

That’s a real positive given the lack of a proper pre-season and the getting used to a new way of playing.

Up next for Wolves is Palace, who have made a bright start to 2020/21.

Roy Hodgson’s side ended 2019/20 in dismal form, but have come out quickly this season to win three of their first six games, drawing two and losing just one.

It’ll be a tough game at Molineux, but one that fans would still expect three points from.

Nuno has some thinking to do, and one position that is currently in the spotlight is left wing-back.

Romain Saiss has been deployed there for the last three matches to accomodate Max Kilman, but the Moroccan has not looked comfortable.

On social media, Wolves fans have been discussing possible changes they’d make for the visit of the Eagles, and many were saying the 30-year-old should make way for either Fernando Marcal or Rayan Ait-Nouri:
