Team News

Paul Pogba remains out with a thigh issue while his countryman Anthony Martial is unlikely to feature here as he continues to want out of the club. There was an injury scare with Eric Bailly last time out, but he’s fine. That said, he’s unavailable for another reason, as he’s on his way to playing for country in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Finally, Victor Lindelof is a doubt due to match fitness concerns relating to his recent testing positive for covid.

Speaking of covid, Wolves have certainly had some selection issues lately, due to the outbreak that recently struck the team.
