Predicted Wolves Line-up To Face Derby County In The EFL Championship
Wolverhampton Wanderers face Derby County on Wednesday in what is expected to be a cracker of a midweek clash. The Championship leaders have a solid lead of 9 points at the top and a win against Derby will only further put them in comfort zone.
With the season coming to an end, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men must aim to finish as strongly as they started, making this game a must-win!
However, Derby are quite solid and they will be looking to cause a nasty upset at Molineux.
Probable Wolves XI
Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo
John Ruddy (GK)
Ruddy should be coming into this game on a high. He made some crucial saves against Cardiff and is likely to retain his spot between the sticks.
Willy Boly (CB)
Boly has been one of the club’s most solid defenders this season and his power at the back will prove to be crucial against Derby.
Ryan Bennett (CB)
Bennett is expected to hold on to his spot at the heart of the defence.
Conor Coady (CB)
The three-man backline is likely to be completed by Coady, who has established a formidable partnership with Bennett and Boly in recent times.
Barry Douglas (LWB)
Douglas will be looking to establish control in this area to keep trouble from Derby at bay and his pace will certainly prove to be useful.
Matt Doherty (RWB)
Doherty put in an impressive performance against Cardiff and is expected to take up the right wing-back position this week.
Romain Saiss (CM)
Saiss’ ability to dictate the pace of the game can prove to be lethal and he will have to be at his best to dominate his Derby counterparts.
Ruben Neves (CM)
Neves marked his return to the starting XI with a legendary performance against Cardiff and he is a sure starter for the upcoming game as well.
Diogo Jota (LW)
Jota put in a fine performance against Cardiff and it is important for him to provide a lethal attacking presence against Derby as well.
Benik Afobe (RW)
Afobe started on the right-wing against Cardiff but he was delightful to watch and is likely to continue there.
Leo Bonatini (CF)
Bonatini can be a menace going forward and he is likely to lead the line this week.
