PREVIEW: WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (H)

24 February 2019

Sponsored by

Jan Siewert’s Huddersfield Town welcomes Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers to the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday 26 February; 7:45pm kick-off.

The Head Coach will be hoping his side can secure a vital three points when they host Wolves on Tuesday evening, having previously prevailed 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture this season thanks to a double from an Aaron Mooy.

The visitors have performed exceptionally well so far this season and currently sit eighth in the Premier League table.

However, Wolves’ last Premier League fixture was a 1-1 away draw with AFC Bournemouth.

Espírito Santo was appointed as Head Coach in May 2017 and led Wolves to the Premier League last season after a six-year absence as his side achieved promotion with four matches remaining in the season and being confirmed as champions with two games to spare.

KEY PLAYERS - FPL FORM

Raúl Jiménez - 7.0

On loan from Benfica, Jiménez has been in incredible form this season for Wolves. The striker is Wolves’ leading scorer and the Mexican has been arguably the stand out player this campaign for the Molineux club.

João Moutinho - 5.3

After signing from Monaco in the summer, Moutinho has been an almost ever-present member of the Wolves team. Still only 32 years of age, the Portuguese midfielder already has a staggering 113 international caps to his name.

Matt Doherty - 4.5

Matt Doherty signed for Wolves in July 2010 after impressing for Bohemians in a pre-season game against the English side. The 27-year-old has featured in every Premier League game so far this season and has contributed with three goals and six assists in the league.
