Wolves predicted line-up against Chelsea
Wolves will look to avoid a fourth successive Premier League defeat when they travel to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.
Bruno Lage saw his men slide to 1-0 defeats against Newcastle and Burnley respectively before being dispatched 3-0 by Brighton at Molineux last time out. Wolves are still in the hunt for European qualification, however, currently only three points behind seventh-placed West Ham, having played one game less.
A win at the weekend will be tough, even if they go to a Chelsea side themselves amid a bumpy spell. Here’s how Lage could settle down.
GK: Jose Sa- No clean sheet for five games, and one more would extend his longest streak without one – a stat that really shows what a great debut campaign he’s had.
DC: Willy Boly- The impressive Max Kilman is still out through injury so Boly is expected to continue his spell in the team.
DC: Conor Coady- Started all but one of Wolves’ Premier League games since the club’s promotion in 2018 and will inevitably skip the side again at Stamford Bridge.
CB: Romain Saiss Left on the bench a few times recently, but the heavy favorite should be set for a third straight start here.
RSF: Jonny- Nelson Semedo appears to have received a blow that will force him out for the rest of the campaign, so Jonny could come on as his replacement.
CM: Rubén Neves – The maestro’s half-time withdrawal last time out would have been just a precautionary measure, so expect him to start here.
CM: Joao Moutinho – Is still a central figure in the team and, at 35, is set to start for a ninth consecutive league start this weekend.
ASF: Rayan Aït-Nouri – The youngster has been in and out of the squad for the past few weeks but, with Jonny forced to substitute on the right, he should get the nod here.
RF: Hwang Hee-Chan – Daniel Podence’s injury should see the South Korean continue in the attacking line as he seeks his first goal in ten league appearances.
ST: Raúl Jimenez – Fabio Silva started last but the youngster is expected to make way for the more experienced and dangerous Jimenez.
RF: Pedro Neto – We could see the nervous Portuguese stepping into the fold for just a second Premier League start to the season.
