Many Wolves fans have voiced their delight after hearing that pair Willy Boly and Diogo Jota are back in contention for tomorrow’s game against Liverpool.
Nuno Espirito Santo announced within his pre-match press conference that he had “good news” – and that meant the return of these two key players in the squad.
It’s been a long wait for Boly, with the Frenchman being ruled out with a fractured ankle since October. Jota, on the other hand, has been out since New Year’s Day with a dead leg.
The centre half has made a speedy recovery from his injury, and a return to the squad tomorrow would be a big achievement for the medical staff, who have no doubt been working relentlessly to try and get him back fully fit before the club’s huge Europa League games against Espanyol.
How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Liverpool?
Lots of fans were absolutely delighted with the news, with one suggesting this was like two new signings, while another just asked for them to be eased back to prevent further complications.
Here are some of the replies below…
YEEESSSS BBBOOOYYYY!!!! Fantastic news. Hope he keeps both back or just on the bench. Then got a break to continue their fitness & integration back into the first team!!

With Boly being a vital component of this Wolves team and them needing his prowess in the upcoming months, you’d imagine they will be easing him back into first-team football – which probably doesn’t consist of playing against the European champions and the team that has 64 points from 66.
Nevertheless, they do have a really tough run of fixtures against Manchester United, Leicester and Espanyol after that, so it will be interesting to see when they decide to put him back in the starting line-up.
