Nuno Santo’s side have generally been playing well, but the form book tells a different story as it’s just the one victory in nine attempts in all competitions.

There could only be two changes as two of Nuno’s first-team stars are fit enough to start here at Molineux.

Against the Foxes last Friday, both Adama Traore and Joao Moutinho were surprisingly named on the bench due to ongoing niggles, but with an extra day of preparation, the duo should feature amongst the starting lineup once again.

The Spanish winger will replace Pedro Neto on the right-hand side while Leander Dendoncker will make way for the Portuguese maestro.

It means the back three of Romain Saiss, skipper Conor Coady and Willy Boly remains untouched as they continue to marshall in front of first-choice shot-stopper Rui Patricio.

Ruben Neves will resume his midfield partnership with Moutinho in the heart of the pitch.

There’s no place for January addition Daniel Podence as he once again is consigned to the bench, meaning Diogo Jota is preferred on the left with Raul Jimenez leading the line as he always does.
