Wolves vs Watford predictions: Wolverhampton Wanderers line-up

A spot in the FA Cup finals will be up for grabs on Sunday when Wolves lock horns with Watford at the Wembley Stadium.

Wolves have been a thrilling side to watch this season in the Premier League as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side sit seventh on the table. They dumped Manchester United out of the competition in the quarter-finals and repeated their heroics in the league as well, beating Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 2-1 earlier this week.

But Nuno’s side have to be wary of Watford, who beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the last round of the competition.

Team News

Nuno has a clean bill of health ahead of the massive showdown at Wembley on Sunday.

Probable Wolves XI

Formation: 3-5-2

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo

Rui Patricio (GK)

An experienced shot-stopper, Patricio has been a stellar for Wolves this season.

Ryan Bennett (RCB)

Bennett has been a regular fixture in Nuno’s team this season and should keep his place on Sunday.

Conor Coady (CB)

Coady has been an absolute rock at the back for the Midlands outfit this term. Nuno will expect a big performance from his skipper at the Wembley.

Conor Coady 1

Willy Boly (LCB)

Boly likes to be adventurous on the ball and launch attacks from the back. He’ll have to be at the top of his game to keep Deeney and co. quiet at the weekend.

Matt Doherty (RWB)

One of the stars of Wolves’ campaign, Doherty has been fantastic as a wing-back, using his pace and crossing abilities to cause problems for the opposition.

Jonny Otto (LWB)

Came on a substitute in 2-1 victory over Manchester United but will likely start at left wing-back against Watford.

Ruben Neves

Ruben Neves (CDM)

Neves dictates the tempo of the game with his passing range and tackling ability. His presence keeps Wolves ticking all over.

Leander Dendoncker (RCM)

The Belgian midfielder has been a revelation since breaking into the Wolves first-team in the second half of the season and should keep his place.

Joao Moutinho (LCM)

Moutinho is a shrewd operator of the ball. He gives a different flavour to the team’s attack.

Raul Jimenez (RS)

Jimenez has struck a fantastic understanding with Jota up front, making Wolves such a threat. The Mexican continues to impress week in and week out and deserves to start in the FA Cup semi-finals.
