Many Wolves fans were left scratching their heads at Nuno Espirito Santo’s decision to switch to an apparent 3-5-2 after their starting line-up was revealed that will face West Bromwich Albion in the Black Country Derby this afternoon.
In their place, Adama Traore came in alongside Fabio Silva as part of a front two, with Willy Boly dropping back into the backline in place of Rayan Ait-Nouri.
As first impressions go, Nuno had set out his side in a 3-5-2 formation, with Pedro Neto playing in the left wingback role.
Will Wolves beat West Brom?
Because of this, supporters were confused with some suggesting that it will eventually merge into more of a 4-3-3 as the game goes on, with Neto joining the attacking line.
Fans surprised by Nuno system
“Oh wow didn’t expect the 3-5-2, but thank god Boly Adama and Neto are all back.”
“It’s 4 at the back surely”
“I’m not sure what to think this could be a back 4”
“Surely that’s Saiss LB in a back 4. Club always get the formation wrong. Happy with that though #wwfc”
“Could just as easily/more likely be a back four with Saiss at left-back. Seems like a waste to push Neto further away from the opposing goal. #WWFC”
“Not the line up I thought but cmon wolves”
