Nuno Espirito Santo to make 9 changes – Predicted 3-4-2-1 Wolves XI to face Southampton

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

A buoyed Wolves would look to continue their fantastic early season form when they face Southampton at the Molineux. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men played very well in their previous league game against Manchester United. Joao Moutinho scored a belter of a goal to earn them a deserved point at Old Trafford.

The Old Gold gems are now up against Southampton, who were thrashed by Liverpool last Saturday. Mark Hughes’ men would be aiming for a better show this time around. Expect a good game with the home team being the favourites.

Team News

Nuno and his men are lucky with regards to the injury list. The Portuguese has a full and wide enough squad to pick his line-up from. However, with the way they played last week, expect him to not make any changes.

Probable Wolves XI

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo

Rui Patricio (GK)

The Portuguese international has been immense since his arrival in the summer. He can play a big part this season.

Ryan Bennett (RCB)

Nuno’s men have been defensively very good this season, not giving away cheap goals. Bennett is an important part of that defence.

Conor Coady

Conor Coady (CB)

In the absence of club captain Danny Batth, Coady has done a fantastic job by leading the side until now. Should continue doing so.

Willy Boly (LCB)

The Frenchman has been superb at the back and very calm on the ball when required. He also possesses a good understanding with his defensive partners.

Matt Doherty (RWB)

The buccaneering wing-back is constantly moving up and down the pitch to impact the game to the best of his abilities. Expect him to start after getting a rest on Tuesday.

Joao Moutinho (CM)

The Portuguese has brought in a sense of calm and experience. His know-how of dealing with certain situations is vital to this team.

Ruben Neves

Ruben Neves (CM)

Neves is the club’s talisman at such a young age. The good thing about him is that he is prepared to work hard for the team when required.

Jonny (LWB)

He was one of the two players who started the League Cup game. Despite that, the Spaniard should be good enough to feature on Saturday as well.

Helder Costa (RW)

One of the key players in the attack and always a threat in the final third, Costa should start this game.

Raul Jimenez

Raul Jimenez (ST)

The Mexican has come in and straight away taken the baton to lead the line. He is not only a target man but is also a hard worker off the ball.

Diogo Jota (LW)

Jota has been very good on the left wing, making probing runs, putting in devilish crosses and pressing hard to win the ball back. Should start this game
