Wolverhampton Wanderers are back in Premier League action for the first time since December 19 due to covid disruption but manager Bruno Lage has a near full-strength squad.

Adama Traore has been dropped to the bench which is no surprise considering the recent rumour mill and Rayan Ait-Nouri finds himself with a place back in the squad but only on the bench.

It looks like a classic 3-4-3 for Lage with the usual back three of Conor Coady, Max Kilman & Romain Saiss playing between full-backs Nelson Semedo and Marcal.

Joao Moutinho and the ever-influential Ruben Neves make up the central midfield with Daniel Podence and Francisco Trincao getting the nod to play either side of Raul Jimenez.
