Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo will have to plan without Willy Boly for their next Premier League game against Chelsea after the 28-year-old was sent off against Everton on Sunday.
With the France-born defender suspended for the visit of the Blues to Molineux, Wolves Live on Twitter (@WolvesFC_latest) asked supporters whether they think Romain Saiss or Jesus Vallejo should take his place at centre-back.
Still a while to go, but who would you have come in for Willy Boly against Chelsea?
Like – Saiss
RT – Vallejo

Vallejo, who is a natural centre-back replacement for Boly, has started three games for Wolves in the Europa League qualifiers since joining on loan from Real Madrid in the summer, but has yet to make his Premier League debut.
Saiss plays primarily as a defensive midfielder but has occasionally deputised at centre-back, having played there nine times for Nuno’s side last season, with one of those coming in a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the league six months ago.
These Wolves fans feel that the Morocco international should be chosen ahead of Vallejo to deputise at centre-back for Boly against Chelsea:
I’d have to go with Saiss, knows the system well and never lets you down

Saiss, purely down to experience in the Prem.
Can’t make my mind up on Jesus yet from what I’ve seen of him
