Wolves travel to Merseyside on Sunday afternoon, as they face a relegation-threatened Everton in the Premier League.

Bruno Lage's side had been enduring a rocky patch of form until this week following three consecutive league defeats to Arsenal, West Ham and Crystal Palace. However, Wolves bounced back to thump Watford 4-0 in midweek, keeping their outside chances of a European place alive.

They should be hopeful of making it two on the bounce this weekend as they travel to an Everton side that sits just one point above the relegation zone. Here's how the visitors could line up.

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Jose Sa (GK) - Has played every minute of Wolves' Premier League campaign so far, keeping ten clean sheets in the process.

Max Kilman (CB) -
Enjoying a fantastic season overall and, after being left out in midweek, should return to the lineup in place of Willy Boly.

Conor Coady (CB) -
Will inevitably skipper the side once more, having done so throughout the Premier League season.

Romain Saiss (CB) -
The Moroccan should continue on the left of the back three to restore Lage's favoured defensive line.

2. Midfielders

Jonny (RWB) - Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever both remain sidelined, so a third straight league start for Jonny seems likely.

Ruben Neves (CM) - Has consistently put in very good performances over recent months and, following his sensational goal in midweek, will certainly start here.

Leander Dendoncker (CM) - Joao Moutinho has started the previous two in the league, although the Belgian could come back into the side for this one.

Rayan Ait-Nouri (LWB) - Should keep his place after replacing Marcal in the lineup and putting in a solid showing against Watford.

3. Forwards

Daniel Podence (RW) - Will surely continue in attack following his performance in midweek.

Raul Jimenez (ST) - Got his first goal in five outings against the Hornets and should be given a second consecutive start this weekend.

Pedro Neto (LW) - With some slight rotation from the side that started on Thursday night expected, we could see Neto replace Hwang Hee-Chan in the front three.
