Gary O’Neil makes £44m decision as injury forces defensive revamp - Wolves predicted XI vs Luton Town

Predicting Gary O’Neil’s Wolverhampton Wanderers lineup to play Luton Town in the Premier League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are in home Premier League action once again as Luton Town are welcomed to Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Gary O’Neil’s men suffered a fourth-straight home defeat on Wednesday as AFC Bournemouth ran out 1-0 victors in a game dominated by VAR controversy. Arsenal were the winners four days earlier as the title challengers won 2-0 despite a dogged Wolves display.

Recent results mean finishing in the top half is the ceiling of Wanderers’ realistic ambitions for the current campaign, with the brief European hopes now long gone. This is a good opportunity to close the gap to the leading 10, though, as Luton are flustered with four defeats in their last five.

Santiago Bueno went off with a hamstring issue midweek, forcing O’Neil into a change at half-time. The Old Gold, as it was, steered away from their usual three-back before the injury but there will be very little choice or tactical flexibility this time around. One positive, though, was Matheus Cunha making his return off the bench against Bournemouth.

With those team news details in mind, here’s the Wolves lineup we predict will face Luton this weekend, including a defensive revamp and an exciting starting XI return.
