Predicted Wolverhampton Wanderers XI to face Fulham in the Premier League

Wolverhampton Wanderers should have plenty of positives to take from their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Friday night and Nuno Santo’s men will be the outright favourites to claim all three points when they make the trip to face bottom table Fulham on Wednesday.

Wolves dropped to 10th in the Premier League standings after their three-game winning run came to an end last week and they will be desperate to climb up the table when they face the Cottagers.

Claudio Ranieri’s men played out a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United in their last game and they will need to get something out of this fixture to move out of the relegation zone.

Team News

Nuno Santo has no major injuries to contend with for the mid-week clash. Diogo Jota remains the only player to be ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Predicted XI

1. Rui Patricio (GK)

The Portuguese veteran was hardly to blame for either of the goals in the last game and has always been a reliable presence between the sticks.

2. Ryan Bennett (RCB)

He looked quite solid against a potent Liverpool attack in the last game and has been one of the standout performers at the back this season.

3. Conor Coady (CB)

The Englishman has been the leader of the backline this season and he should be in high spirits after putting in a solid shift in the last game.

4. Willy Boly (LCB)

He was a bit inconsistent last week and struggled occasionally at the back but he has been really solid overall this season.

5. Matt Doherty (RWB)

The Irishman defended with a lot of composure against Liverpool and played some exquisite long balls to set up attacks.

6. Jonny Otto Castro (LWB)

He wasn’t particularly sharp last week but he has been a regular for Wolves and will be expected to get another start.

7. Ruben Neves (CM)

The Portuguese international struggled to make an impact last week and he will need to put in a better shift this time around.

8. Romain Saiss (CM)

The Moroccan had a positive impact against Liverpool and showed good intent going forward.

9. Joao Moutinho (CAM)

The veteran looked really sharp last week in a more advanced role and Nuno Santo should bank on him to spark that creativity in the final third.

10. Raul Jimenez (ST)

The Mexican impressed with his hold-up play and vision last week and will be expected to continue his good work.

11. Adama Traore (ST)

The youngster found life tough against van Dijk last week but he showed enough promise and should get another start this week.
