Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking for their first win of the Premier League campaign as they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday. The Wolves are coming on the back of a 2-1 win over Torino in midweek that has helped them qualify for the main stage of the UEFA Europa League this season. And they will be keen on maintaining that winning momentum against the Toffees.
Here is how Nuno Espirito Santo’s men could lineup at the Goodison Park this weekend.
Rui Patricio is the undisputed number one choice in between the sticks for Wolverhampton at the moment. He will retain his place in goal, ahead of John Ruddy.
Nuno made one important change in defence against Torino, with Jesus Vallejo coming in. He could revert that change this weekend, meaning Ryan Bennett is likely to return to the starting lineup. The 29-year-old will be partnered by Willy Boly and Conor Coady in the three-man backline.
These three defenders haven’t exactly managed to replicate last season’s performances. And keeping a clean sheet against Everton should be the club’s main priority. A lot will depend on how they manage to deal with the likes of Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
We could expect a lot of changes in midfield this weekend. Ruben Neves is expected to return to the starting lineup after being rested against Torino. As for Leander Dendoncker, he picked up a knock in midweek. Youngster Morgan Gibbs-White will likely replace the Belgian.
Both Neves and Gibbs-White will be partnered by Joao Moutinho in the three-man midfield setup for Wolverhampton.
Elsewhere, Adama Traore could be replaced by Matt Doherty in the right wing-back slot. However, the Irish international needs to put in a good performance, especially with Adama repeatedly impressing in his new role.
Jonny Castro, meanwhile, could make way for Ruben Vinagre on the opposite flank. The 25-year-old featured against Torino in the last game, and it won’t be surprising to see him getting a breather on this one.
The attack will likely remain unchanged, even though Patrick Cutrone is a tempting option. Raul Jimenez scored the opener in midweek, and the Mexican international will be hoping to do the same against Everton this weekend. He will be partnered by Diogo Jota, who will operate in a slightly deeper role.
