For the first time in the Wolves tenure from Nuno Santo, he moved into a four-man defense against Southampton a few weeks ago.
He then continued that theme when they traveled to Arsenal, sweeping the Gunners 2-1.
In 166 of his 166 games before the Saints clash, he had gone three behind, but Nuno is now undefeated since he turned things around.
However, with a match against Premier League champions Liverpool, it could be said that they would take a risk by not setting up a more familiar system.
So we tip the coach back to his three-man defense, with the following XI predicted: Patricio, Semedo, Boly, Coady, Kilman, Marcal, Neves, Moutinho, Neto, Traore, Silva.
We believe Nuno will return to training to give his team a little more cover against a fluid Liverpool attack.
What formation should Nuno play?
The man sacrificed to make this work is Daniel Podence. He scored against Arsenal but without number 10, sadly retiring on Sunday.
Ruben Neves missed last weekend but is back for Leander Dendoncker to offer an extra layer of ball safety in the middle of the park.
The final change that we think could happen is at the rear, where Max Kilman comes in to play as left center back.
Raúl Jiménez is ruled out after fracturing his skull. You were involved in a nasty collision with David Luiz and will therefore be wasting an extended period of time.
Therefore, Fabio Silva faces his first career on the side.
Wolves’ signing has yet to start in the Premier League, so it will be a real test for the young Portuguese.
Having cost the club £ 35.6m, these are the times when you have to show up.
