Wolverhampton Wanderers will play hosts to Huddersfield Town at the Molineaux Stadium on Sunday at the back of a strong 1-1 draw versus Arsenal in the previous gameweek. The Terriers will be full of confidence going into this match at West Midlands after picking up 4 points from their last two league matches.

Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to keep changes to a minimum and could line up his team in a 3-4-3 formation. However, the home team will be without the services of Jonny who is out injured so Ruben Vinagre might replace him as a left wing-back.

3-4-3 Wolves Predicted Lineup To Face Huddersfield Town

Defence

The Portuguese shot-stopper, Rui Patricio would start for the West Midlands outfit this weekend while John Ruddy has to settle for a spot on Nuno Santo’s bench. The ever-present trio of Ryan Bennett, Conor Coady and Willy Boly would make up the three-man defence for Wolves. They have featured in every league match at the Molineaux Stadium during this campaign so far and have developed a strong understanding amongst each other.

The Wolves manager will demand a good defensive showing against the Terriers, who have found it very difficult to score goals in the English top-flight this season.  It is hard to look past anything other than a clean sheet for the home team this weekend.

Midfield

The all Portuguese midfield pair of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are likely to continue their wonderful alliance at the centre of the pitch. Matt Doherty is a major doubt for this clash but should recover in time to start as the right full-back.

Jonny, who has been a first-teamer under Nuno Santo this season, is set for a spell on the sidelines due to injury. So Ruben Vinagre could start down the left flank as he looks to put in some good crosses from the wide areas.

Attack

The dynamic attacking duo of Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa might be deployed behind Raul Jimenez, who will lead the charge for Wolves this weekend. The Mexican prospect has often found himself either scoring or setting up goals for others which has made him ‘untouchable’ in Nuno Santo’s first-team. It will be up to Jimenez once again to produce some moments of magic inside the Terriers penalty area.

Adama Traore will start as a substitute and might come on during the game if needed.
