After their emotional high at Villa Park last weekend, Wolves turn their attentions to a trip to Elland Road to face Leeds in the Premier League.

Bruno Lage's side staged a dramatic turnaround against Aston Villa last time out, as goals from Romain Saiss, Conor Coady and a deflected Ruben Neves free-kick deep into stoppage time allowed Wolves to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

The result moved the Molineux side into the top half of the table and victory this weekend would make it four league wins on the spin under the stewardship of Lage.

Here's how Wolves could line up.

Jose Sa (GK) - A reliable presence between the posts for Wolves and can always be called upon for a big save.

Max Kilman (CB) - The 24-year-old's development this season ought to have encouraged the Wolves faithful.

Conor Coady (CB) - Netted the equaliser at Villa Park last weekend, but it's his defensive nous which makes him integral to Lage's side.

Romain Saiss (CB) - Like Coady, the Morocco international was on the scoresheet last time out as he displayed his set-piece prowess.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Nelson Semedo (RWB) - Wolves haven't looked back since the Portuguese came into the side for Ki-Jana Hoever, offering electric pace down the right hand side.

Ruben Neves (CM) - The 24-year-old has looked back to his best this term and it was his deflected free-kick which completed the turnaround for Wolves last weekend.

Joao Moutinho (CM) - Offers composure in central midfield, and isn't afraid to do the dirty work in the middle of the park.

Marcal (LWB) - A great outlet down the left flank, allowing Wolves' forward line to link effectively in central areas.

3. Forwards

Hwang Hee-Chan (RW) - The 25-year-old has looked like Wolves' biggest goal threat this season.

Raul Jimenez (ST) - Dropped to the bench for last weekend's trip to Villa Park due to his exertions with Mexico during the international break, and his predatory ability will be key against a vulnerable Leeds defence.

Adama Traore (LW) - Leeds' insistence on man-marking all over the pitch could lend itself to a very good afternoon for the maverick Spaniard.
