    |With just four days between the victory at home to Brentford and this match, there was not much time to dwell on things, but I was surprised when the team was announced that it was exactly the same starting eleven to the one that started last Tuesday night.

    That meant a back three central defenders line of Bednarek, Lyanco and Salisu in front of Fraser Forster. The wing backs were Tella and Perraud, with a midfield of Ward-Prowse, Romeu and Diallo. The front two were Redmond and Broja.

    Walker-Peters and Valery were back on the bench, but there was still no sign of McCarthy, so Caballero was the reserve keeper.

    After losing their first three matches, Wolves have settled into a difficult side to beat, with only Manchester City shipping fewer goals this season, so this was not going to be an easy match

    This was a fairly fiesty match, with Salisu right at the centre of things once again...
