Wolves are to host table-toppers Liverpool in the first Premier League match of the weekend on Friday.
They have won their last three games and are unbeaten against Manchester City,
Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea this season leaving manager Nuno confident. A victory on Friday would see them leapfrog Manchester United into sixth place.
Liverpool come into this game one point clear of Manchester City and know that a win against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will keep them there for Christmas.
Wolves have just the one injury concern heading into this match, winger Diogo Jota, who is ruled out because of the hamstring problem that forced him off against Bournemouth.
Ivan Cavaleiro and Adama Traore are the two most likely replacements for the former Atletico Madrid man, who has scored two goals in his last three appearances.
On the other hand, Liverpool’s right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is again set to miss out with a sprained ankle, but he should return over the festive period.
James Milner is set for a late fitness test on a hamstring injury, but Joel Matip (broken collarbone), Joe Gomez (broken ankle) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remain long-term absentees.
This is the first of two games between these two sides in the coming weeks, with Liverpool also travelling to Molineux for their FA Cup third round tie in early January.
Nuno has admitted that Friday’s clash will be a ‘big challenge’ for his side against a team who have conceded just seven league goals from 17 matches this season.
“I see it as a big challenge for us,” the Wolves boss said. “We are OK, we are prepared. We require a lot, it’s a fantastic team, a fantastic manager – what a game.
“They are at the top of the league and that says a lot. We are going to face one of the best teams in Europe and we look forward to it.”
