Wolverhampton Wanderers combat Bournemouth at Molineux on Wednesday evening looking to increase their unbeaten Premier League record to seven matches.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth make the trip to the West Midlands having suffered four defeats in five matches, a run which has left the Cherries within the relegation zone.
Wolves will look to increase their unbeaten Premier League run to seven matches once they combat relegation-threatened Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
Wanderers returned to league action with a routine 2-0 win away to West Ham that has moved them level on 46 points with fifth-placed
Manchester United and five adrift of Chelsea, who occupy the last Champions League qualifying spot.
Bournemouth are having trouble at the other end of the table, on 27 points and in 18th place, the third relegation spot, on goal difference. They were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Having under-performed against Crystal Palace at the weekend,
there’ll be a particular feeling of trepidation within the Bournemouth ranks before their encounter with Wolves.
However, despite now sitting within the bottom three, Eddie Howe will feel that his players are under no pressure to realize a result against such a disciplined, in-form outfit.
Providing that they will frustrate opponents preferring to play on the break,
Howe are going to be optimistic that his team can gain a result which might ultimately be seemed to be a bonus.
While the return of David Brooks may be a significant plus,
the Cherries won’t gain up the standings unless they will end a run of conceding a minimum of two goals in their last five games.
Wolves vs Bournemouth Team News
Despite the apparent benefits of using Traore off the bench, Nuno will likely hand a recall to the winger for this contest.
That could end in Leander Dendoncker throwing in the towel of the side,
although the short turnaround to Saturday’s derby with Aston Villa may cause Joao Moutinho beginning among the replacements.
Unless Nuno opts to bring Ruben Vinagre into the team, the remainder of the starting lineup is predicted to stay an equivalent .
Josh King may be a major doubt for Bournemouth after being withdrawn against Palace with a knock to his ankle.
Having suffered cramp in his first game back, David Brooks may sink to the substitutes’ bench.
Given those selection issues, Howe could consider reverting to a back three so as to match their hosts.
Wolves winger Pedro Neto are going to be pushing for a starting berth, having made a goalscoring impact as a substitute last outing .
Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo features a fully-fit squad to settle on from.
Bournemouth forward Joshua King may be a doubt for the trip to Molineux.
King suffered an ankle injury against Crystal Palace on Saturday and, although the matter isn’t as bad as first feared, he should miss out.
