Predicted Wolves XI vs Leeds United

Wolves face Leeds United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening, in what could be a welcome distraction from the Old Gold’s disastrous Premier League form.

In a season of extreme fixture congestion, some Premier League sides may see the competition as an opportunity to play reserves and youngsters, and given Wolves’ relegation battle in the top flight, Steve Davis may well decide to do the same at Molineux on Wednesday.

With a tough game against Arsenal to come at the weekend, the interim manager may well ring the changes against Jesse Marsch’s side.

He could also try out a new formation in the hope that it can produce a much better performance.

Here is how Football FanCast expects Wolves to line up against Leeds on Wednesday, with six changes from the team that started in the defeat against Brighton.

Jose Sa has been playing in the Premier League with a fractured wrist recently so he should earn a much-needed rest on Wednesday, with Matija Sarkic replacing him in between the sticks.

Davis has opted for a four-at-the-back formation during his time in charge but he could try something different by opting for a five-at-the-back formation in a low-pressure game against Leeds.

Therefore, Toti comes into the starting XI alongside Max Kilman and Nathan Collins as the three centre-backs, while Rayan Ait-Nouri replaces Hugo Bueno on the left-hand side.

After Nelson Semedo’s red card against the Seagulls on Saturday, Davis should hand a first-ever Wolves appearance to Luke Matheson, who has endured a number of loan spells and academy appearances since joining the Old Gold as a promising 17-year-old from Rochdale in early 2020.

Fellow academy talent Joe Hodge should also earn a start in midfield alongside Ruben Neves, with the usually “outstanding” Joao Moutinho dropping out after some poor recent performances.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

After making his Premier League debut at the weekend, Connor Ronan should earn a start in attacking midfield, supporting Hwang-Hee Chan and Goncalo Guedes as the front two, with Diego Costa still suspended.
