Wolverhampton Wanderers will play hosts to Crystal Palace at the Molineux Stadium on Monday night hoping to pick up maximum points at home. The West Midlands side are currently in pole position to secure UEFA Europa League football next season, so they will be desperate to beat the Eagles at the start of next week.

Nuno Espirito Santo will stick with his preferred 3-4-3 formation and might make a few changes to his team for this clash versus Roy Hodgson’s men.

3-4-3 Wolves Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace

Defence

Rui Patricio will keep his spot in goal for Wolves despite shipping in a late goal versus Burnley earlier this week. The Midlands outfit will once again line up with a back three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Roman Saiss as they try to cope with the threat of Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha during the game.

Max Kilman will be available for selection on the bench as he provides some cover for the centre-back positions.

Midfield

Ruben Neves will resume his midfield partnership with Leander Dendoncker as they look to put in a commanding performance at the centre of the park. The dynamic duo will focus on producing a tireless shift defensively and will also need to orchestrate some decent goal-scoring opportunities in the final third.

Jonny Otto will hope to catch the eye on the left flank as a wing-back while Matt Doherty takes his place on the right side of the Wolves midfield. Nuno Santo will instruct both wing-backs to get to the byline quite often so that they can deliver a few inviting crosses into the Eagles penalty area.

Joao Moutinho might be rested on the bench after playing the full 90 minutes versus the Clarets earlier this week.

Attack

The Wolves frontline will be comprised of Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence as they try to stretch the pitch out on the flanks while Raul Jimenez spearheads the Wolves attack down the middle. All three attackers will fancy their chances of scoring against a Palace defence that has shipped in 15 goals in their past six Premier League matches.

Diogo Jota and Adama Traore will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on to influence the game as the impact substitutes in the second half if required.
