Predicted Wolves line-up to face Watford in the Premier League

An in-form Wolves welcome a slightly bruised Watford to the Molineux stadium for a Premier League clash on Saturday. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have started the season in fantastic manner after getting promoted this summer. They were impressive against Crystal Palace away from home in the last game.

They face a Watford team who were thrashed 4-0 at home at the hands of Bournemouth. Hence, Javi Gracia and his men would be looking for a response. Meanwhile for the Old Gold, keeping a good home run going will be the ideal aim.

Team News

Nuno has been lucky that his key players have been fit so far, resulting in the manager not making a single change to his line-up thus far this season. The Portuguese again has a fully fit squad to pick his eleven from.

Probable Wolves XI

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo

Rui Patricio (GK)

The Portuguese international has been one of the many in-form players in the team. The goalkeeper has already made some key saves this season.

Ryan Bennett (RCB)

Bennett looks comfortable in a back-three formation. He is bold on the ball and reads the game well.

Conor Coady

Conor Coady (CB)

Captain Coady has been phenomenal this season. He leads the team from the back and is doing his defensive work in impeccable manner.

Willy Boly (LCB)

The Frenchman looks at home playing in a back-three. All the three centre-backs communicate well and are solid.

Matt Doherty (RWB)

The buccaneering wing-back moves forward at every given opportunity. He is also a good defender as he tracks back when needed.

Joao Moutinho (CM)

The experienced Portuguese international is shoring up the midfield in fine fashion. He makes use of the ball in the best possible manner, which helps the team a lot.

Ruben Neves

Ruben Neves (CM)

The youngster is a talisman, who creates chances and does the defensive work. He is a fantastic free-kick taker.

Jonny (LWB)

Made his Spain debut against England at right-back and looked good. The Atletico Madrid loanee has been terrific for Wolves at left wing-back.

Diogo Jota (LW)

The Portuguese is an influential player in the team, however, his final product has been a bit off-radar thus far. Despite that, he remains a key component in the system.

Raul Jimenez

Raul Jimenez (ST)

The Mexican has led the line superbly so far. He is a typical old-fashion centre-forward, a proper nuisance for the opposition defenders.

Helder Costa (RW)

Costa scored for Portugal on his national team debut. He has been in fine form this season and that goal would have further increased his confidence.
