WOL Vs AVL Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Wolverhampton’s lack of goals continues to hurt them this season.
Having made a name for themselves with their electric brand of attacking football across the last couple of seasons, Wolverhampton have unprecedently gone off the boil this season. Despite being involved in only the Premier League till now, the side has failed to capitalise on the leeway accorded to it when it comes to fixture congestion.
They ended up empty handed against Liverpool the last time around to leave the club with a sorry 11 goals in the space of 10 fixtures. Its been a dreary showing by the club in attack this season, one further worsened with the departure of striker Jimenez’s to a head injury.
In a quandary, 10th place Wolverhampton know that today’s fixture is a must win one for them. With the club embarking on a gruelling set of fixtures this month, the need to accrue three points and gain much yearned for confidence is incessant in the side’s ranks.

Top Goal Scorer
- Raul: 4 Goals
- Watkins: 6 Goals
Currently one of the best performing goal-keepers in then league, Emiliano Martinez has seen his stock rise in stature with each passing gameweek.
They did end up leaking 4 goals to Liverpool the last time around but outside of the top 6, Wolverhampton have been largely speckle free as a defensive unit. The side has refused to let anything breach its sticks with its backline moving in unison to quash attacking plays.
The side’s stringent brand of defending sees us opt for the trio of Conor Coady, Wily Boly and Nelson Semedo for the day’s showdown.
With Raul out with an injury, Wolverhampton are set to hand Pedro Neto the role of their attack’s leader. The club’s second top scorer, he’s contributed to the most number of goals to rise in esteem in no time at all.
Leander Dendoncker has finally made the midfield spot his own with his ability to make his presence felt all across the park making him a prized asset. Joao Moutinho’s ability to keep the ball ticking across the pitch with his passing sees him complete the set of picks from the side.
5 goals and 5 assists see Jack Grealish line up for us from the visiting side with Douglas Luiz giving him company.
The club’s top scorer with 6 strikes, Ollie Watkins will be linking up with him while the hosts sees us opt for Daniel Podence who has the two goals and two assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Neto’s three goals and three assists make him our captain while Grealish is the vice-captain.
Martinez, Boly, Semedo, Coady, Jack, Neto, Dendoncker, Joao, Luiz, Watkins, Podence
