Two wins on the bounce have kept Wolves on the fringes of the Premier League's European race and they'll look to make it three against Leeds on Friday.

A worrying run of three defeats came to an emphatic end against Watford, before Wolves secured a nice 1-0 win over Everton to keep themselves only five points adrift of Arsenal in the final Champions League spot.

Here's how Bruno Lage could set up for this one.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Jose Sa (GK) - Tied for fourth in Premier League clean sheets this season. An excellent debut campaign so far.

Max Kilman (CB) - Unfortunate to miss out on a spot in the latest England squad considering his form this season.

Conor Coady (CB) - A little fortunate to get in the latest England squad.

Romain Saiss (CB) - An ever-present when fit, Saiss sits fourth in Premier League clearances this season with 133.

2. Midfielders

Jonny (RWB) - With Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever both absent, expect Jonny to switch over from the left again.

Ruben Neves (CM) - His name has been in the transfer rumour mill in recent weeks as a result of his impressive form.

Joao Moutinho (CM) - Neves' partner-in-crime, Moutinho continues to impress at the age of 35.

Leander Dendoncker (CM) - Limited options in attack should see Lage stick with a 3-5-2 setup.

Rayan Ait-Nouri (LWB) - Ait-Nouri sat out the win over Everton and could return to the team here.

3. Forwards

Raul Jimenez

Daniel Podence (ST) - Podence should return to the starting XI, particularly as Pedro Neto remains out and Hwang Hee-chan is battling a back injury.

Raul Jimenez (ST) - Three goals in his last seven starts is solid from Jimenez, who needs to step things up a little more.
