Predicted Wolves Lineup To Face Sheffield United In EFL Championship
After a run of four games without a win in all competitions, Wolves got back to winning ways at Ipswich Town last time and will look to continue to assert their dominance on this league with another home win against Sheffield United.
Romain Saiss missed out at Portman Road with a hamstring injury but may return this time to partner Ruben Neves in the middle. Striker Leo Bonatini may return to the starting XI up front.
We should see the usual 3-4-3 formation from Nuno Santo, most likely utilising the following personnel:
Probable Wolves XI
GK – John Ruddy
The ‘keeper has been talking up his chances of regaining an England place in time for the World Cup in Russia and I am all in favour of that.
CB – Ryan Bennett
The ex-Norwich man has done well this season since his switch and is liable to once again line up on the right-hand side of the back three.
CB – Conor Coady
The central figure in this defence and one of the most important members of this squad overall. Coady was mentioned as a possible Premier League target this month but is sure to be playing at the top level next season anyway.
CB – Willy Boly
The defender has proven himself to most people’s idea of the best defender in the Championship and one who could certainly play at a higher level.
RWB – Matt Doherty
Last week’s goalscoring hero will line up in his usual wing-back role and is sure to put in another strong shift.
LWB – Barry Douglas
The former Dundee United man is going great guns this season and should once more line up at left wing-back.
CM – Romain Saiss
Not considered last week due to a recurring hamstring problem, his injury is not said to be too serious and so he may well be back in the side this week.
CM – Ruben Neves
Neves is progressing nicely and should again be ensconced in the middle of the park for Wolves.
RW – Helder Costa
As always, it’s a tight call between Costa and Cavaleiro, with the former perhaps getting the vote this time.
LW – Diogo Jota
Played up front last week but is likely to return to his normal position on the left for this one.
ST – Leo Bonatini
The Brazilian came off the bench last time at Ipswich but may be restored to the starting line-up here. He could definitely do with a goal.
