Wolverhampton Wanderers will clash heads with Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Sunday at the back of an impressive 2-0 win over West Ham United in midweek. The West Midlands outfit are currently flying high in the Premier League and are unbeaten in their past seven matches across all competitions.

Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to opt for a 3-4-3 formation and might name an unchanged team for this encounter away at Brighton. The visitors are currently sitting pretty at fifth place in the league table. They will be eager to earn maximum points from this upcoming contest on the road so that they can close the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea in the top four race.

3-4-3 Wolves Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton And Hove

Defence

Rui Patricio will keep his place in between the sticks after securing a well-deserved at home versus the Hammers in midweek. Nuno might choose to stick with the same back three that started on Wednesday. Leander Dedoncker, Coady Coady and Romain Saïss will look to work together and try to keep the Brighton attackers at bay this weekend.

Willy Boly is still out of action with an injury, but Ryan Bennett will be available for a place on the bench.

Midfield

Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho will set themselves as the anchormen in midfield. The Portuguese duo will also be responsible for distributing the ball accurately so that Wolves can establish their authority at the centre of the park.

Jonny Otto will get another chance to shine as the left wing-back. Matt Doherty will resume his full-back duties down the right flank.

Morgan Gibbs-White is a major doubt for this game. Even if he recovers in time for the match, it is unlikely that Nuno will throw him at the deep end rather than easing him back into his match-day squad.

Attack

Diogo Jota and Adama Traore will focus on stretching the pitch out on the wide areas. The Wolves wingers will both look to feed balls into Raul Jimenez who will lead the charge down the middle. The Mexican international has enjoyed another solid season at the Molineux so a lot will be expected of him when he laces up to face the Seagulls on Sunday.
