Molineux plays host to Premier League action on Friday night as Wolverhampton Wanderers welcome Crystal Palace.

Wolves will be looking to return to winning ways after a positive performance against Newcastle United last time out could only yield a point, with the Magpies’ Jacob Murphy scoring a late free kick to ensure the spoils were shared.

As for Crystal Palace, they comfortably saw off Fulham at Craven Cottage in their last league outing, leaving them level on points and just a place above their opponents on Friday night.

Wolves’ inconsistent start to the campaign has been a similar story to their previous two Premier League seasons – although Nuno Espirito Santo has managed to secure a 7th placed finish both times.

In fact, Wolves have started slightly better in 2020/21, and with no European football intensifying the schedule this season, Wanderers may have their eye on a higher finish.

Crystal Palace meanwhile have also had a mixed start to the season, but that is certainly better than the dismal form the Eagles’ ended Project Restart with having lost 7 consecutive fixtures.

Manager Roy Hodgson has had a job on his hands in recent weeks with team selection, considering his side has 9 injuries or suspensions, joint-highest in the Premier League along with leaders Everton.

Gary Cahill, Nathan Ferguson, Wayne Hennessey, Connor Wickham and Jack Butland are all out, whereas Jordan Ayew, James McCarthy, James Tomkins and Jairo Riedewald are all doubts to face Wolves.

No such medical issues for Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves players though, with defender Jonny Otto the only definite absentee with a knee injury.

Wolves v Palace is 8th versus 9th in the Premier League table and kick off at Molineux is 8pm on Friday 30th October.
