Wolves’ predicted XI to face Manchester United

Wolves have suffered back to back league defeats in Bruno Lage’s first two competitive matches in charge but those losses don’t tell the full story.

In fact, despite not scoring a goal, the Old Gold have been one of the most threatening teams in the league.

As of last weekend, they’d taken 42 attempts at goal, a tally only Liverpool could better.

A 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in midweek will have boosted the confidence but they face a Manchester United side who will be rejuvenated.

They have just re-signed Cristiano Ronaldo and could hand a debut to Raphael Varane on Sunday afternoon.

That being said, they did draw 1-1 with relegation-tipped Southampton last weekend.

Wolves, therefore, will have plenty of hope as they travel to Old Trafford on Sunday. Although, who will start for them? Here’s what we’re predicting…

We anticipate Bruno Lage to make eight changes from the side that demolished Nottingham Forest a few days ago.

There are a host of changes in offensive areas where the £37k-per-week Fabio Silva is dropped. Daniel Podence and Morgan Gibbs-White both drop out too.

Should Boly start on Sunday?

Yes please!

Yes please!

No thanks!

No thanks!

That sees Raul Jimenez, Adama Traore and Trincao all come back into the XI. Although the trio haven’t scored a goal yet this term, they have been dangerous. Traore, for instance, has managed ten dribbles per match in the Premier League this season.

There is also a change in the middle of the park where Ruben Neves comes back in for Leander Dendoncker after his promising start to the new campaign.

There are also plenty of changes at the back. John Ruddy is axed at the expense of Jose Sa while Willy Boly returns to the starting XI after injury in place of Romain Saiss.

Both wing-backs are also swapped with Marcal and Nelson Semedo coming in for Rayan Ait-Nouri and Ki-Jana Hoever.

This means that Wolves line-up with a very similar XI to the one that lost to Tottenham last weekend.
