Wolves: Fans call for much-changed starting line-up for Carabao Cup trip to Aston Villa

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo appears set to ring the changes for tonight’s Carabao Cup clash away to Aston Villa.

Tim Spiers, who covers the club for The Athletic, tweeted via @TimSpiers that a much-changed line-up is expected, with youngsters such as Taylor Perry and Benny Ashley-Seal mooted for starting berths, adding that the Carabao Cup is not a priority for the Wolves boss.

Nuno made 10 changes to his starting line-up for Wolves’ previous game in the competition against Reading last month and, with the trip to Villa Park the third of four matches in a 10-day period, the manager could well decide to rest many of his regular starters.

The squad has been impacted with injuries recently, with Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly both missing last Sunday’s trip to Newcastle and the latter set to be ruled out for a while after breaking his ankle at the weekend, as per the Express & Star.

With a Premier League trip to Arsenal coming up on Saturday, these Wolves fans on Twitter have called for a much-changed line-up for tonight’s Carabao Cup clash at Aston Villa:
