Wolves will be searching for a return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Crystal Palace at Molineux.

Bruno Lage's side tasted successive defeats in the league for the first time since December after they were downed by West Ham last time out, a result which saw them slip to eighth in the standings.

Here's how Wolves could line up for Saturday's game.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Jose Sa (GK) - Arguably the best goalkeeper in the division this season, although he didn't cover himself in glory by turning Alexandre Lacazette's shot into his own net against Arsenal.

Max Kilman (CB) - A right-footed left centre-back, of which there aren't many on the planet.

Conor Coady (CB) - Plays a quarterback role in this Wolves side, spraying his side forward with his sublime range of passing.

Romain Saiss (CB) - Graeme Souness lamented his defending as 'shocking' for Tomas Soucek's winning goal for West Ham last weekend, but he'll likely keep his place.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Ki-Jana Hoever (RWB) - Hasn't quite established himself in the Wolves side after arriving from Liverpool last summer but may get a run with Nelson Semedo out injured.

Joao Moutinho (CM) - His ball-playing ability will be key against a Palace side who like to dominate possession.

Ruben Neves (CM) - Very much back to his best after a disappointing campaign last season.

Rayan Ait-Nouri (LWB) - His added attacking threat on the left hand side could be useful in a must-win fixture for Wolves.

3. Forwards

Pedro Neto (RW) - Has had to contend with substitute appearances since his return from injury, but the 21-year-old is ready to be unleashed from the get-go.

Raul Jimenez (ST) - Bizarrely he was dropped to the bench for last weekend's defeat at the London Stadium.

Daniel Podence (LW) - Diminutive and decisive with the ball, scoring the winner in Wolves' previous league win against Leicester.
