Wolves predicted line up for Premier League trip to Manchester United

Wolves have enjoyed a rare week of preparation as they face a trip to Old Trafford to battle Manchester United in the Premier League this afternoon.

The west Midlanders played six games in quick succession during January and go into this match with a bit of a boost, should they choose to utilise it.

Portuguese boss Nuno Santo very rarely tinkers his side but returns from injury and new signings pose an interesting question.

Here’s the team we think he will select today…

We predict that there will be two changes to the starting XI whilst there are places on the bench for new arrivals.

Rui Patricio, as ever, keeps his place between the sticks with skipper Conor Coady in front of him but there will be a return for Willy Boly at long last.

The 28-year-old has been absent for nearly five months after fracturing his fibula during training back in October. He has been on the bench in recent games but is now handed the chance to start. Romain Saiss remains in the back three along with Jonny and Matt Doherty the usual wing-back options.

In midfield, Nuno’s trustworthy duo Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho continue to operate the engine room, meaning there is no place for Leander Dendoncker who drops to the bench.

There’s a return to the starting lineup for Portuguese forward Diogo Jota after coming on as a substitute against Liverpool last time out. He has stepped up his game time since returning from injury and is trusted to begin the match.

It means Pedro Neto is forced to be a substitute, quite an unlucky decision on his part after two goals in four games.

Who on earth is that?!?! Can you name all of these obscure January signings?

Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore complete the XI.

There will be no starting debuts for any of their new signings, but expect winger Daniel Podence and maybe even Leonardo Campana to feature at some stage as they have bolstered Wolves’ attacking options.
