Match preview

Will Wolverhampton Wanderers get back on track in their push for European football?

Last weekend, Bruno Lage's side were beaten 1-0 at the London Stadium by West Ham, rarely threatening an equaliser after going behind.

So, Wolves have now lost three of their last five Premier League games, following two dramatic loses to Arsenal, 1-0 at home and 2-1 at the Emirates.

Nevertheless, having beaten Leicester, Spurs, Brentford, Southampton and Manchester United since New Years' Day, there's no need to panic.

Wolves currently sit eighth, two points below Tottenham who occupy the final potential European spot.

With Spurs not in action until Monday night, will Wolves leap into seventh with a win?

Crystal Palace meanwhile are just three places but ten points below their hosts.

The Eagles were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley in their last match; Jeffrey Schlupp with the opener before an unfortunate own goal by Luka Milivojević.

Three days before this, Palace had enjoyed their first league victory of 2022, and in some style, hammering Watford 4-1 at Vicarage Road.

This midweek, they booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 2-1 home victory over Championship club Stoke.

Cheikhou Kouyaté tapped home the opener from close-range before forgotten man Jaïro Riedewald came off the bench to slot home the winner.

This means Patrick Vieira is now unbeaten in 18 FA Cup ties as a player and manager, lifting the cup five times during his playing career.

In the Premier League, Palace are averaging 1.4 goals per game this season, their highest ratio in the top-flight under any permanent manager.

However, they're likely to find Wolves a tough nut to crack, so will the home side be too strong at Molineux?

Bruno Lage made wholesale changes for the trip to West Ham, given that it came about 64 hours after their last-gasp defeat at Arsenal.

However, this was evident as they put in a below par, underwhelming performance.

So, all the big-hitters are likely to return here.

This includes Rayan Aït-Nouri at left-wing-back but, on the other side, Nélson Semedo is a doubt having hobbled off at the Emirates.

So, Jonny could start for the first time since 15 March last year having recovered from a long-term knee injury, displacing Ki-Jana Hoever.

Elsewhere, João Moutinho will return to midfield, alongside Rúben Neves.

In attack, Hwang Hee-chan is back now so will join Daniel Podence and Raúl Jiménez up top.

Francisco Trincão and Fábio Silva would therefore join fit again Pedro Neto in attack.

For Patrick Vieira, after his side were in action on Wednesday, it could be more of a balancing act.

He's been chopping and changing his goalkeepers in recent weeks but Jack Butland could keep his place over Vicente Guaita.

18 year old Tayo Adaramola made his full senior debut against Stoke, but regular left-back Tyrick Mitchell could be back in here.

Conor Gallagher and Luka Milivojević are also likely to return in midfield but, up front, Vieira has some tough decisions to make.

Wilfried Zaha, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Jordan Ayew and Michael Olise started the cup match after Zaha, Olise and Jeffrey Schlupp had done so against Burnley.

All of those players, as well as Eberechi Eze, Christian Benteke and Odsonne Édouard, will feel they deserve to be in the XI for this one.

Vieira certainly has a plethora of attacking options, but can he deploy the right combination to beat Wolves?
