Wolves vs Fulham predictions: Wolves predicted line-up
Wolves are on the cusp of Europa League qualification. They sit three points ahead of Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City but don’t have a superior goal difference as of now. Hence, it is imperative that Wolves do not take their final two games of the season lightly.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League. They have been great against the ‘big 6’ and play a brand of football that has got them many new admirers.
A lot of investment had gone into the summer and they are very close to achieving their targets for the season. They’ll be hosting their contemporaries from the Championship last season, Fulham.
The Cottagers have seen a revival since Scott Parker came in as caretaker, so Wolves will have to make certain that they don’t slip up. They’ve struggled to break teams in the bottom half of the league and will have to change that if they are to cement that 7th position.
There are no suspensions or injuries of note, which should allow Nuno Espirito Santo to pick his preferred Starting XI.
Probable Wolves XI
Formation : 3-5-2
Manager : Nuno Espirito Santo
Rui Patricio (GK)
The Portuguese international has been solid between the sticks this season. He’s not missed a single minute in the league this season and that shouldn’t change on Saturday.
Matt Doherty (RWB)
The Irishman has been outstanding this season and could even be in contention for the club’s player of the year.
Ryan Bennett (CB)
Bennett has only missed four league games all season and should start this game.
Conor Coady (CB)
The captain of the team, the Englishman will be leading them with the hope that they can guarantee their Europa League spot.
Willy Boly (CB)
The Frenchman has been an astute signing. He’s one of the best centre-backs in the league when it comes to driving into midfield. Wolves depend heavily on Boly for their build up from the back.
Jonny Otto (LWB)
The former Celta Vigo player has been one of the best players on the left flank this season despite being a naturally right-footed player. He should get the nod ahead of Ruben Vinagre.
Joao Moutinho (CM)
One of the signings of the season, the Portuguese international is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League. This Wolves team would not be able to dictate the tempo of the game without him in the midfield.
Ruben Neves (CM)
The 22-year-old is one of the best young midfielders in the world. The former Porto captain has lit up the Premier League and is a certain starter. He’s the poster boy for this Wolves side.
Leander Dendoncker (CM)
The Belgian made a slow start at the Molineux but has been a regular since Gameweek 22. He’s started the last two league games and should be fit to start against Fulham.
Diogo Jota (FW)
The Portuguese has been in phenomenal form since he moved from the right wing to a more central role. He’s fitted this new role perfectly, doing a similar job to Roberto Firmino of Liverpool. He presses, holds the ball up, has an eye for a pass and a goal.

Raul Jimenez (FW)
The Mexican international is yet another contender for the club’s player of the season. He always gives his 100% even if he doesn’t find the score-sheet, which is why he’s always a starter.
