Picking the Best Potential Wolves Lineup to Face Newcastle on Sunday

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves look to build on their dramatic comeback win over Chelsea when they travel to Newcastle on Sunday. 

Wanderers midweek triumph halted a run of six league games without a win and lifted the Midlands side to within four points of the final Europa League spot. 

Ruben Neves is set to return after serving a one-match suspension, while left back Jonny Castro is not expected to return before the new year.

Here's how they could lineup.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Rui Patricio (GK) - Looking for a fifth clean sheet this term, the former Sporting CP keeper made several key saves in midweek to preserve his side's lead.

Matt Doherty (RWB) - Almost faultless this campaign, Doherty has particularly excelled in attacking areas with two goals and three assists. 

Ryan Bennett (CB) - Has a fair share of top flight experience with Norwich and looks to lead by example alongside his defensive compatriots.

Conor Coady (CB) - Captain and leader, Coady will look to thwart the in-form Salomon Rondon.

Willy Boly (CB) - Leaves nothing on the pitch and contributed to some heroic defending against Chelsea.

Ruben Vinagre (LWB) - Great going forward, but not so great defensively - the rapid Portuguese youngster will battle with fellow speedster Matt Ritchie.

2. Midfielders

Ruben Neves (CM) - Neves' suspension coincided with the side's dip in form - he'll be looking to pull the strings in midfield as he looks to regain his form.

Joao Moutinho (CM) - Deployed in a more defensive role than his partner, Moutinho's awareness, calm and precision on the ball will be tested against Ayoze Perez.

3. Forwards

Morgan Gibbs-White (RW) - At just 18 years old, the England youngster is making inroads at Wanderers and will be desperate to net his first Premier League goal.

Diego Jota (LW) - After scoring the winner in midweek, he'll be expected to be given the nod ahead of wingers Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa. 

Raul Jimenez (ST) - Having netted four goals and four assists in his debut season, the club look set to fork out a record fee to sign the Mexican forward on a permanent deal.
