Ahead of tonight’s Europa League clash between Wolves and Slovan Bratislava at Molineux, Express & Star journalist Joe Edwards shared his expected Wolves line-up on Twitter [via @JoeEdwards_Star].
Wolves to go like this tomorrow v Slovan Bratislava?
Thinking with Jota suspended, bring Neto in, while Neves and Dendoncker are given a bit of a rest for Sunday.

If that is the team which is selected by Nuno Espirito Santo, there will be three changes in personnel from the starting XI against Arsenal last weekend.
Pedro Neto would replace the suspended Diogo Jota in attack, while Max Kilman and Ryan Bennett would come into the defence, with Romain Saiss reverting to midfield while Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker drop out.
There is no place in Edwards’ anticipated line-up, though, for striker Patrick Cutrone, who scored in the recent Carabao Cup defeat against Aston Villa but was substituted at half-time in Wolves’ win over Slovan Bratislava two weeks ago.
Can Wolves cope without Willy Boly?
The 21-year-old Italian has been in and out of Nuno’s starting XI this season, with two Europa League starts either side of a substitute appearance against Besiktas indicative of his campaign so far.
These Wolves fans on Twitter have called for Cutrone to be included from the start against Slovan Bratislava tonight, with some asking for Raul Jimenez to be rested:

No Cutrone, Joe?

Is Bennett 100%? don’t want to suffer another set back. Saiss/Donk in defense, Neves in midfield. Cutrone from the start.

Cutrone for Raul, Vinagre for Jonny and Vallejo for Bennett imo

I’d be playing Cutrone and rest Jimenez, possibly Traore as well
