First start for £5m signing as Gary O’Neil braves eight changes - Wolves predicted XI gallery v Ipswich Town

Here’s how we predict Wolverhampton Wanderers to line up against Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head out on the road on Tuesday evening to face EFL Championship surprise package Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup Third Round.

One of the most in-form teams in the nation, Ipswich have won seven of their first eight matches since returning to the English second tier and are currently in second spot.

The Old Gold, on the other hand, are without a win since the 5-0 thrashing of Blackpool in the previous round of the Carabao Cup and confidence is rather low.

Wolves will likely rotate heavily as the Premier League is the priority but Gary O’Neil probably won’t start too many youngsters to show respect to the Tractor Boys.

With that in mind, here are the 11 players we think will start at Portman Road Stadium, as well as brief explanations for each inclusion.
