Wolves fans have been looking to the weekend’s game with Fulham and thinking about who should play in midfield.

The performance at the London Stadium was possibly the worst under Nuno so far, with the defence shaky, midfield uninspiring and attack unthreatening.

Midfield battles are always key, and Nuno has a decision to make regarding who he sticks in the engine room to face the Cottagers.
