Wolves’ predicted XI to face Bournemouth on Saturday

Premier League football is finally back on our screens this weekend after the final international break of 2019 concluded.

England successfully negotiated themselves through their qualifying group for Euro 2020 while Raul Jimenez was among the goals for Mexico.

Diogo Jota even earned his debut for Portugal alongside a whole host of Wolves’ Portuguese quartet.

But as the Midlands outfit travel to the south coast on Saturday afternoon, who could line-up in Nuno Santo’s side?

Here’s what we’re predicting.

We’re tipping Nuno to make just one change from the side that impressively beat Aston Villa two weeks ago.

That sees the aforementioned Jota dropped from the starting XI, instead replaced by Patrick Cutrone. The Italian earned the backing of his manager this week after scoring twice for Italy’s U21 side.

The £31.5m-rated Jota, on the other hand, flattered to deceive against the Villans. He failed to score from five shots while registering an average pass success rate of 77%.

Who will win?





With Cutrone impressing on the left for his country, it’s a role the manager could look to field him in at the weekend.

It’s likely that Jesus Vallejo will be neglected again. The 22-year-old has found minutes difficult to come by despite Willy Bolly’s injury and according to reports in Spain, Real Madrid are concerned about his lack of action.

With Vallejo on the bench, expect Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker to continue alongside Conor Coady.

Jimenez has had another fatiguing voyage to Central America over the last couple of weeks but former Wolves physio Paul Darby expects him to be fit.
