The skipper has been a mainstay in the Wolves squad and is expected to lead the backline against Watford on Sunday.

The 29-year-old sat out the game against Manchester United in the quarterfinals but is expected to return to the starting line-up at Wembley on Sunday.

Matt Doherty (RWB)

The Irishman has been one of Wolves’ best players this season as he provides a brilliant balance between the attack and the defence. He should be at his best to control the movement of Roberto Pereyra on Sunday.

Joao Moutinho (CM)

The Portuguese international has been massively influential for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side so far and his creativity in the midfield could determine Wolves’ fate in the competition.

Leander Dendoncker (CM)

After a difficult start to life in the Premier League, Dendoncker has settled in nicely in recent games and has been a huge influence on Wolves’ results. He should start again on Sunday.

Ruben Neves (CM)

The Portuguese beast has been brilliant for Wolves all season and his performances in the final few games will determine Wolves’ chances of qualifying for Europe next season. 

Jonny Castro (LWB)

The Spaniard was rested in favour of Ruben Vinagre on Tuesday but should return to the starting line-up against Watford at Wembley this weekend.
