Wolves will be looking to extend their impressive run – which includes a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are likely to edge what is expected to be a close encounter.

Crystal Palace vs Wolves Premier League match preview
Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to London on Saturday for their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Palace were beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth on Monday night, ending their three-match unbeaten run. They went behind early on but Patrick van Aanholt levelled things up in the second half.
The Eagles were denied a point after conceding a late penalty.
The defeat leaves Roy Hodgson’s side in 13th with two wins and a draw from their seven matches.
Wilfried Zaha has been instrumental for the Eagles, scoring three and assisting another in his six appearances.
Palace and Wolves have never faced each other in the Premier League.
Wolves begin the weekend in the top half of the table following last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Southampton.
Returning from a back injury, substitute Ivan Cavaleiro opened the scoring for Wolves with his first touch of the season. Jonny Castro sealed the win late on as Wolves kept another clean sheet.
If they manage to avoid defeat on Saturday, Wolves will have extended their Premier League unbeaten run to six matches.
With just six goals conceded in seven matches, Wolves have the fourth-best defensive record in the league.
Not only are they picking up points, but they’re doing it with confidence, like they belong in the Premier League.
Nuno Santo has instilled an attractive brand of football rarely seen from a newly-promoted side.
That said, the Wolves boss would’ve probably hoped for a few more than the nine goals his side have scored so far.
Crystal Palace team news vs Wolves
Roy Hodgson is not expected to make many changes to the side which lost at Bournemouth.
Palace have no new injury concerns from Monday night, but Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Christian Benteke remain sidelined.
Jairo Riedewald has stepped up his recovery from injury but won’t return to full training until after the Wolves clash.
Wolves team news vs Crystal Palace
Helder Costa is Wolves’ only injury concern ahead of Saturday’s clash. The winger will be hoping for a speedy recovery as he has just received his first call-up to the Portugal national team.
The Portuguese manager should continue with a back three, with Matt Doherty and Jonny Otto used as wing-backs. Otto’s impressive performances have earned him a first-ever call-up to the Spain squad.
Atletico Madrid loanee Jimenez will start up front, with Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves starting in central midfield.
Adama Traore has largely been used off the bench this season but could earn a start on the right wing.
