Premier League high-flyers Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to pick up their eighth league win of the campaign when they welcome bottom-dwellers Norwich City to the Molineux Stadium. Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have been in sensational form since the start of the campaign, and their recent win in the Europa League further highlighted the quality this Wolves team possesses.
They gave Espanyol a thorough test in the Europa League on Thursday night, as they absolutely barraged their way to a convincing 4-0 victory in the home leg. With Norwich City next, Nuno will be hoping that his team can maintain the same level of form. While the Canaries have been showing slight signs of improvement over recent weeks, the challenge posed by Wolves could turn out to be too much for them to deal with.
The only injury concern for the Portuguese manager at this point comes in the form of prodigious young full-back Ruben Vinagre, who has been on the road to recovery from a thigh problem for a couple of weeks now. The manager has clarified that the youngster will be making his return to the side in the coming weeks, but will probably be unavailable for selection for this tie.
Predicted 3-4-3 Wolves Lineup Vs Norwich City
Rui Patricio has singlehandedly won the men in orange multiple points since the start of the league campaign. The Portuguese veteran is expected to keep his place between the sticks for this tie. Ahead of him, expect to see former Liverpool man Conor Coady commandeering the heart of the Wolves back-line. Romain Saiss and Willy Boly could partner the experienced centre-half.
Nuno Espírito Santo limited star man Joao Moutinho to a substitute appearance during the last league fixture on the weekend. The veteran Portuguese pass-master is expected to make his way back into the team, with national compatriot Ruben Neves set to partner him in the middle of the park. Matt Doherty and Jonny Castro should take up the regular full-back roles as well.
One of Wolves’ biggest misses from their last league outing was that of Spanish speedster Adama Traore. The dangerous attacker has been in fine form since the start of the campaign, and he’s expected to keep his place down the left flank for Wolves. Diogo Jota picked up an excellent hat-trick in midweek and is likely to partner Raul Jimenez to complete this Wolves attack.
