Wolves team news: Nuno rings the changes for crucial Crystal Palace clash
Nuno Espirito Santo has once again rotated his squad for today’s match at Crystal Palace – and appears to have returned to 3-4-3.
The Wolves boss has recalled Romain Saiss, Joao Moutinho, Diogo Jota and Adama Traore after the frustrating 1-0 defeat to Braga in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Ryan Bennett, Morgan Gibbs-White, Ruben Neves and Patrick Cutrone drop to the bench for the match at Selhurst Park. Palace have won just six of their last 21 matches on home soil, scoring only 20 goals in the process.
Roy Hodgson’s side have conceded just 23 goals in those matches which makes Selhurst Park the Premier League’s poorest source of goals.

Palace have, however, won two of their five Premier League games this season and claimed a 1-0 win over Aston Villa on their last outing at Selhurst Park. Wolves are still searching for their first league win of the season and a defeat today would extend their losing streak to four matches – the club’s worst run under Nuno.
Wolves (3-5-2): Patricio; Saiss, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Jonny; Adama, Jimenez, Jota
Subs: Ruddy, Vallejo, Neves, Vinagre, Neto, Gibbs-White, Cutrone
