Wolves will hope that their home match against Fulham this afternoon will help them return to winning ways in the Premier League.
As it stands, Wolves are 16th in the table after managing to grab just one win so far. After being beaten by Manchester City, they went on to suffer a shock defeat at the hands of David Moyes’ Irons. West Ham ran out 4-0 winners on home soil, leaving the Midlands side scratching their heads.
A big performance is needed if Wolves want to start their climb up the table, but Fulham will be equally hungry for points. The Cottagers are currently rooted to the bottom of the league table on zero points, with ten goals scored against them.
Football FanCast has predicted how Wolverhampton might line-up in their upcoming Premier League clash…
With £17m man Daniel Podence reportedly due to return today, Nuno Espirito Santo may opt to risk starting him after being out with a shoulder injury. Wolves have missed his attacking threat on the wing after he bagged himself two assists in two games (via Transfermarkt). His link-up play with Raul Jimenez is fast turning into something threatening and they will need all the attacking prowess then can get.
We could see Leander Dendoncker take the place of Joao Moutinho, who has had a quiet last few games. Wolves are short on midfield options as it is, so freshening up the heart of the engine room could be key to finding a result against a desperate Fulham.
The regular back-line of three will likely stay in tact, with Conor Coady looking to lead his side to their second win of the Premier League season. They will need to stay strong against a Fulham side eager to claw their way out of the relegation zone.
