Wolverhampton Wanderers, despite two draws from two games in the Premier League, have started the season in positive form, after stepping one foot into the Europa League group stages in midweek.
Wolves will play their third game in seven days today, after Nuno Espirito Santo’s men endured a hard-fought battle in Turin, putting themselves in strong contention for a Europa League spot.
After the tough test against Manchester United on Monday and the dogged performance against Torino in midweek, the Wanderers will now welcome Burnley to Molineux on Sunday.
So, how will the Nuno Espirito Santo set his side up this time?
Ryan Bennett was rested in midweek, meaning he could come back in alongside Conor Coady and Will Boly.
Ruben Neves’ stunning goal and 8/10 match rating against United only added to his already excellent collection, so he should come back into the side after being rested against Torino. Joao Moutinho received a very impressive rating of 8/10 for his performance against the Italian club and Belgium’s Leander Dendoncker should keep his place.
Despite Adama Traore ‘tearing apart’ Christian Ansaldi in midweek – receiving an 8/10 rating – three days after he gave Luke Shaw a similar treatment, he could be back on the bench as Matt Doherty stayed home on Thursday.
Up top, both Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored in Italy, however, with Patrick Cutrone seeing some Premier League time and a lot of Europa League minutes, the Ex-Milan man could start ahead of Jota, who received the lowest match rating in Turin, which could be a sign of the busy schedule taking its toll.Like what the TT have on offer?
