Wolves’ predicted line-up to face Aston Villa in the Premier League

After suffering a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool last week, Wolves will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Aston Villa at Molineux.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were ruthlessly put to the sword by the reigning Premier League champions, but face a Villa side who have had some difficult results in the past couple of weeks, losing back-to-back games in the top-flight.

It’s a chance for Wolves to put things right immediately, and Nuno might take the chance to field a couple of surprise changes in his starting line-up for the game.


In front of regular number one Rui Patricio, Nuno may consider giving 19-year-old Rayan Ait-Nouri the chance to start from the off, and leaving Marcal on the bench.

And having gone with a midfield three against Liverpool, the Wolves boss may opt to return to a formation with holding midfielders like he did in the win over Arsenal, with Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker screening in front of the defence.

Ahead of them, there could be a very pacy looking front-line, with Daniel Podence playing just behind the striker, and Pedro Neto and Adama Traore on the left and right hand sides respectively.

The other big call Nuno may make is giving Fabio Silva the opportunity to start in the Premier League, and an out-of-sorts Villa side could be the perfect way for him to finally make his mark in English football after his summer arrival.

Predicted XI: Patricio; Semedo, Boly, Coady, Ait-Nouri; Dendoncker, Moutinho; Adama, Podence, Neto; Silva.
