Match preview

Can Wolverhampton Wanderers reignite their flailing European aspirations?

On Saturday, Wolves were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace, meaning they've now lost three successive games, following reverses at Arsenal and West Ham.

Before this, Bruno Lage's side had amassed 19 points from a possible 24, climbing from ninth up to seventh.

However, the Wanderers are back down to eighth, five points below West Ham and Tottenham who occupy the final European positions.

It was all going so well for Wolves but will they prevent their ongoing blip from turning into a full-blown crisis?

Watford meanwhile are in desperate need of points to preserve their Premier League status.

On Sunday, despite a spectacular overhead kick scored by Cucho Hernández, the Hornets were beaten 3-2 by Arsenal at Vicarage Road.

Moussa Sissoko did halve the deficit with just three minutes to go, but they could not set up a grand-stand finish.

This means Watford have still only won one of their last 13 Premier League home games, that amazing 4-1 drubbing of Manchester United.

Under Roy Hodgson, it's just five points from seven outings, beating Aston Villa away a month ago.

This leaves them 19th, three points from safety, looking to draw level on points with Everton by winning in the Black Country.

Who will claim a much needed three points at Molineux?

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

Bruno Lage publicly criticised Ki-Jana Hoever on Saturday, in a way you just never see in the modern game, José Mourinho aside.

So, it'll be interesting to see if he keeps his place at right-wing-back, or if Jonny will come in; first-choice Nélson Semedo is injured.

On the other flank, Rayan Aït-Nouri could return in place of the more defensive option that is Marçal

The other aspect of the XI worth keeping an eye on is if Raúl Jiménez will start after he was left on the bench against Crystal Palace.

Pedro Neto made his first start since April in that one, after a long-term knee injury, alongside Daniel Podence and Hwang Hee-chan.

Watford team news

Watford meanwhile were without centre-back William Troost-Ekong and star winger Ismaïla Sarr on Sunday; it's unknown if either will be back.

If Sarr isn't back, Cucho Hernández and João Pedro are like to support Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis in attack.

The Nigerian has scored in all five of Watford's victories this season.

Another attacking option, Samuel Kalu, made his debut at the weekend after arriving from Girondins de Bordeaux in January.
