Wolves head into their match today absolutely desperate not only for a goal, but also a win.
Bruno Lage’s men are yet to secure a point or hit the back of the net in the Premier League. Therefore, the international break may have come at exactly the right time for the Old Gold.
They face promoted Watford this afternoon in a game in which they will be expected to at least score.
Here’s the XI we’re predicting Lage to select for today’s 3pm kick-off at Vicarage Road.
We’re tipping the manager to make three changes to the side which lost 1-0 to Manchester United last time out.
The first replacement is in attack, where Hwang Hee-chan comes in for a Wolves debut in place of Francesco Trincao, who hasn’t shown much end product in the final third yet.
Fortunately, Wolves will be able to call upon Raul Jimenez. The forward was called up to the Mexico squad for the international break, but due to that country being on the red list, Wolves stopped him from travelling.
The same eventuality fell on the shoulders of the Brazilian players in the Premier League but they have now been banned by FIFA for five days, meaning they can’t play this weekend.
There are a further two changes to the team in defence, where Willy Boly returns in favour of the £14k-per-week Max Kilman.
Another switch is at left wing-back, where Marcal drops out in favour of Rayan Ait-Nouri. Jose Sa is set to keep his place between the posts despite his error in the loss to Manchester United.
