Picking the Best Potential Wolves Lineup to Face Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday

Wolves return to Premier League action this weekend following their first victory in the top flight since the 2011/12 season.


Manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be expected to stick with the same starting XI which brought him success last time out, as he looks to add to his tally of five points this season.


Here is how Wolves' could lineup against Burnley on Sunday.

3. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Rui Patricio (GK) - The Portuguese shot stopper is expected to keep his place in goal after grabbing his first clean sheet in the Premier League


Ryan Bennett (CB) - Bennett has appeared in all four of Wolves' games so far and is expected to start again.


Willy Boly (CB) - The centre back scored a decisive goal against champions Manchester City should start again.


Connor Coady (CB) - Having captained the side so frequently it is likely that Coady will retain his starting spot.

2. Midfielders

Matt Doherty (RWB) - Omitted from the Republic of Ireland squad and should be fresh to start on Sunday.


Joao Moutinho (CM) - Grabbed the headlines when he signed and has already impressed the fans with his performances, should start again.


Ruben Neves (CM) - Has attracted interest from both of the Manchester clubs so is almost certain to start on Sunday.


Jonny Castro (LWB) - Signed on loan from Atletico Madrid, the full-back has been capped 34 times for his country and is expected to start for Wolves.

1. Forwards

Helder Costa (RW) - Yet to score in the Premier League but is still unlikely to lose his starting spot.


Raul Jimenez (ST) - Scored on international duty and was taken off as a precaution but is likely to start against Burnley.


Diogo Jota (LW) - Was impressive in the Championship and should keep his place on Sunday.
