A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are hoping that head coach Nuno Espirito Santo gives another chance to almost forgotten signing Leander Dendoncker later this evening as we face Leicester City in the third round of the EFL Cup.
Welcoming Claude Puel’s side to the Molineux as we go in search of a little bit of Premier League revenge following the league loss back at the end of August, the aim is, of course, to put our ball in the fourth round draw hat to keep an already more than decent season going.
With 23-year-old Dendoncker making his only appearance in the second round tie against Sheffield Wednesday following his arrival from Anderlecht, chances are we will see more of him tonight as he continues settling into life at the club and gets himself up to speed and Leicester will be a good test for the man.
Team tonight should be…
Ruddy; Doherty, Dendoncker, Coady, Hause, Giles; MGW, Saiss; Adama, Bonatini, Vinagre

A lot of changes mate. Coady and Doherty only ones likely to keep their places. Ruddy will be in goal with Dendoncker & Hause alongside Coady, & Vinagre at LWB. Saiss in MF with either MGW or youngster Watt partnering him. Bonatini up top with Traore and Cav if fit.

Will be that same line up we put up against Wednesday I would imagine Ruddy, Dendoncker, Coady, Hause, Doherty, Saiss, Watt, Giles, Traore, Bonatini, Gibbs-White
