Predicted Wolves line-up to face West Ham in the Premier League
Wolverhampton Wanderers will host mid-table side West Ham to Molineux in the Premier League on Tuesday evening, aiming for consecutive home wins.
Wolves kept their FA Cup dreams alive when they salvaged a last-minute draw at Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round to earn a replay.
Now Nuno Espirito Santo will expect his Wolverhampton Wanderers side to overcome West Ham, who suffered a shock FA Cup exit at the hands of League One minnows AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
Santo will be without defender Willy Boly, who is serving the last of his three-match suspension. Other than that, the manager has the whole squad to select his team for Tuesday’s game.
Probable Wolverhampton Wanderers XI
Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo
Rui Patricio (GK)
The Portuguese has proven to be a fantastic buy for Wolves this summer. He will continue to perform his duties between the sticks.
Ryan Bennett (RCB)
Bennett has been a regular fixture in Wolves’ three-man defence this season. He’ll retain his place in the team for the West Ham game.
Conor Coady (CB)
Strong in the air and tough in the tackle, Coady is an indispensable figure for Nuno’s Wolves. The skipper is expected to start against the Hammers.
Romain Saiss (LCB)
With Boly suspended, Saiss should start on the left and complete the three-man backline.
Matt Doherty (RWB)
Doherty has been excellent for Wolves all campaign. He is a certain starter for Tuesday’s league fixture.
Jonny Castro Otto (LWB)
A utility player, Otto continues to be a reliable performer for Wolves at left wing-back.
Ruben Neves (CDM)
Neves will start in his preferred deeper role in the midfield and look to control the tempo of the game with his exquisite passing range.
Joao Moutinho (LCM)
Moutinho is a classy operator of the ball who’ll look to create openings for his teammates from a slightly advanced role in the midfield.
Leander Dendoncker (RCM)
After a slow start to his life at Molineux, Dendoncker has started getting his opportunities and could be handed a third straight start on Tuesday.
Raul Jimenez (LS)
Jimenez has been Wolves’ chief source of goals this season. He is a certain starter against West Ham.

Diogo Jota (RS)
A hat-trick in the 4-3 victory over Leicester would have given Jota a world of confidence. He will be raring to make his mark on Tuesday as well.
