Wolves are back in Premier League action tonight and on the face of it, have their hardest game of the season.

It’s champions Liverpool at Anfield for Nuno, which is definitely a daunting prospect in theory.

That said, the Reds have been blighted by injury problems recently and there may, just may, be a point or more in this one for Wolves.

It’ll take a special performance to get something, especially without Raul Jimenez, but Wolves have frequently shown they can mix it with the best.

How Nuno sets up tonight will be interesting; the new four-at-the-back system has looked promising, but the manager may be tempted to revert back to old ways.

But surely Liverpool, with their weakened side, are there to be got at.

In goal Rui Patricio will obviously start, and it would be good to see Nelson Semedo, Conor Coady, Willy Boly and Fernando Marcal in a back four again.

The quartet did well against Arsenal, and skipper Coady will be desperate for a solid showing against his former club.

In midfield, Joao Moutinho deserves to feature after raising his game in recent weeks, and Leander Dendoncker should be his partner. It would be good to see Pedro Neto operating just ahead, picking up the ball in pockets of space.

In attack, Adama Traore has looked very dangerous in the system and should play from the right with livewire Daniel Podence on the left.

And replacing Jimenez might be Fabio Silva.

Hopefully Nuno puts his faith in the £35 million youngster (BBC Sport), who has been patiently waiting for his chance.

He did well against Arsenal, and showed his finishing capabilities against Doncaster Rovers in the Papa John’s Trophy.

With a good showing tonight, he can truly announce his arrival at Molineux.

It would be a risky lineup, but perhaps one that needs considering to try and take the game to Liverpool.
