Wolverhampton Wanderers will be without three players against Manchester City on Friday – Willy Boly (fibula), Morgan Gibbs-White (back), Bruno Jordao (ankle). The Midlands outfit have no fresh injury woes, however, so Nuno Espirito Santo has the luxury of being able to name the same starting eleven that beat Norwich City 2-1 on Saturday.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Manchester City?
Boly has been out of action for two months after undergoing surgery on a fractured fibula. The 28-year-old has made 16 appearances in all competitions this season, the last of which came in Wolves’ 2-1 win over Slovan Bratislava (October 24). In his absence, Nuno has named Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker at centre-back.
Gibbs-White has been out of action since the start of November with a back injury, last featuring for Wolves against Bratislava (October 24). The 19-year-old was an unused substitute in Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Arsenal and hasn’t featured since. He made 10 appearances in all competitions before his injury, scoring one goal.
As for Jordao, the 21-year-old has been sidelined since September with an ankle injury but is nearing a recovery. He’s only featured twice at senior level, the last of which came in their EFL Cup defeat to Aston Villa (October 30).
