Watford, on the other hand, are eighth in the table and will look to beat Wolves to move closer to European qualification.

Team News

Nuno has a clean bill of health ahead of the Watford encounter.

Probable Wolves XI

Formation: 3-5-2

Manager: Nuno Espírito Santo

Rui Patricio (GK)

The Portuguese shot-stopper has had a solid debut season in the Premier League. He is set to start in goal at the weekend.

Matt Doherty (RWB)

The Irishman has been one of Wolves’ best players this season as he provides a brilliant balance between the attack and the defence.

Ryan Bennett (CB)

Bennett has been a regular fixture in Wolves’ three-man backline this campaign. He is expected to retain his place in the team.

Connor Coady (RCB)

The skipper has been a mainstay in the Wolves squad and is expected to lead the backline against Watford on Saturday.

Willy Boly (LCB)

Boly has been a rock at the back for Wolves this season and his presence will be important against an exciting Watford side this weekend.

Jonny Castro (LWB)

Castro has made a good impact in his first Premier League season and deserves to keep his place at left wing-back against Watford.

Ruben Neves (CDM)

A classy operator of the ball, Neves scored a fantastic free-kick in the 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Wednesday. He is an undoubted starter at Vicarage Road.

Joao Moutinho (LCM)

The Portuguese international has been massively influential for Santo’s side so far and his creativity in the midfield could determine Saturday’s result.

Leander Dendoncker (RCM)

After a difficult start to life in the Premier League, Dendoncker has settled in nicely and is now one of the first names on Santo’s team sheet.

Diogo Jota (LS)

With 8 goals and 4 assists in the Premier League, Jota has been a vital player for Santo and he will be hoping to continue his tremendous form on Saturday.
