Wolves predicted lineup vs Aston Villa – Premier League

Wolverhampton Wanderers look to make it three wins on the spin as they travel to Aston Villa this Saturday.

Having appointed Bruno Lage in the summer, Wolves got off to a slow start, struggling to score goals despite impressive performances. Raúl Jiménez’s return to scoring and the loan signing of Hwang Hee-chan has helped to relieve that pressure in recent weeks however.

Jiménez faces a race against time to make it back in time for the fixture after his endeavours with Mexico, scoring in a 2-0 victory over El Salvador on Thursday.

We take a look at the XI Lage could pick.

José Sá (GK) – The new Wolves number one has been enjoying his first few weeks at the club and has been solid.

Max Kilman (CB) – Wolves’ player of the month for August has enjoyed a terrific start to the season and has nailed down a regular starting spot in the back three.

Conor Coady (CB) – The captain extended his run of international clean sheets to four matches after his display in the 5-0 thrashing of Andorra.

Romain Saïss (CB) – The tough centre-back isn’t immune to scoring the odd goal, so it would be no surprise to see him on the scoreline this weekend.

Nélson Semedo (RWB) – Was a contender for Wolves player of the month in September, and has been very impressive on both sides of the ball in recent weeks.

Rúben Neves (CM)  Linked with a move away from the club in the summer, the midfielder’s quality will be crucial in winning the midfield battle.

João Moutinho (CM) – The veteran enjoyed a few decent performances during the international break, and will look to continue that form into domestic football on Saturday.

Fernando Marçal (LWB) – Endured a poor outing against Southampton but followed it up with a good display vs Newcastle.

Adama Traore (RW) – With Francisco Trincão ruled out, the door is open for Adama to return to the starting XI.

Raul Jiménez (ST) – The forward is a doubt for this weekend due to international commitments – but if he is available, he starts.

Hwang Hee-chan (LW) – Will be hoping to follow up his brace against Newcastle with some more goals this weekend.
