After resting a number of players in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to ring the changes ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with Watford.

The Wolves manager started Pedro Neto and Diogo Jota at Anfield and both players impressed in attack, but Neto may be dropped against the Hornets as Nuno has to make space for Adama Traore.

The 23-year-old was named on the bench on Sunday but shone when introduced in the second half, so it’s hard to see him being left out at Vicarage Road. As per WhoScored, Traore has contributed 12 goals in 29 appearances, created 24 chances and made 95 successful dribbles.

As for Neto, the 19-year-old has made 13 Premier League appearances for Wolves, racking up only 287 minutes of playing time, but he has impressed in recent weeks.

Neto had a fantastic low drive controversially ruled out against Liverpool and was praised by supporters on social media for his no-fear approach over the 90 minutes.

But with Nuno protecting Diogo Jota by bringing him off early, Wolves look set to start with the Portuguese international and Traore out wide.
