The wolves have started the New Year just as they ended 2020, inconsistently.

That said, it hasn’t been without entertainment. Nuno Santo’s men drew a passionate encounter 3-3 with Brighton in their first game of 2021 before a brilliant goal from Adama Traore sealed their way to the FA Cup fourth round.

Attention returns to the Premier League tonight as they host an Everton side without striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Molineux.

Old Gold don’t have multiple players due to injury yet, so they will have to patch some areas of their squad.

Nuno still lacks Raúl Jiménez, while Willy Boly, Jonny, Marcal and Daniel Podence are all absent due to injury. So who could start with the Wolves on Tuesday night?

Well, we tip Nuno to make up to three changes to the team that beat Palace in the Cup.

Should Cutrone start on Tuesday night?



No way

No way

The first change to consider is in the goal, where John Ruddy falls back to the bench. Consequently, the normal Premier League stopper Rui Patricio is back between the posts.

Another change is in the midfield. the £ 90k per week Leander Dendoncker falls to the bench after returning from injury. It may be too early for the Belgian executor to play two matches in such a short time, so the talented youngster Vitinha takes his place in the middle of the park.

The last replacement for the coach is on attack. Fabio Silva once again failed to score in the FA Cup and therefore Patrick Cutrone leads the line.

He was remembered from his loan to Fiorentina last week, but had to settle for a spot among the substitutes when they faced the Eagles. However, he is now free to play and should start at Molineux tonight if Nuno makes any sense.

And in other news, wolves may find their next Boly with a 1.5 million pound “gun”, he is a “great talker” …
