Team News: Wolves
The Wolves boss Gary O'Neil has no fitness worries at all ahead of this match thanks to a completely healthy group available to choose from.
We are thinking that Wolves may well opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation featuring Jose Sa, Max Kilman, Craig Dawson, Toti Gomes, Nelson Semedo, Rayan Ait Nouri, Mario Lemina, Joao Gomes, Pablo Sarabia, Matheus Cunha and Pedro Neto.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has to choose a team with limited availability. Aaron Hickey (Hamstring injury), Bryan Mbeumo (Ankle injury), Kevin Schade (Adductor injury), Ryan Trevitt (Ankle surgery) and Rico Henry (Knee injury) will not be playing here.
We reckon that The Bees seem most likely to make use of a 3-5-2 formation by sending out Mark Flekken, Nathan Collins, Ethan Pinnock, Ben Mee, Mads Roerslev, Mathias Jensen, Christian Noergaard, Vitaly Janelt, Sergio Reguilon, Ivan Toney and Neal Maupay.
We’ve got the feeling that Brentford have the capability to find the net against this Wolverhampton Wanderers side, but that might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Wolverhampton Wanderers by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s see what happens here.
