Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Wolves could line for Sunday's Premier League fixture with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo may look to keep changes down to a minimum for Sunday's Premier League meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

A combination of injuries and the performance during the 4-0 defeat to Burnley forced Nuno's hand against West Bromwich Albion with the likes of Owen Otasowie and Vitinha handed rare opportunities.

However, the pair played a part in Fabio Silva's goal at The Hawthorns, a contribution which could convince Nuno to keep their pair in the starting lineup.

While Joao Moutinho comes back into contention after injury, the Portuguese is more likely to take the place of either Leander Dendoncker or Ruben Neves if he passes a fitness test.

The more-attack-minded Daniel Podence is an alternative to Otasowie on the right flank if Nuno wants more flair in the final third.

One alteration could potentially come at left-back with Rayan Ait-Nouri being withdrawn during the latter stages of the derby with the Baggies.

With Marcal unlikely to feature and Jonny Otto expected to miss the rest of the year, Max Kilman is on standby to take the French youngster's spot in the side.

Should Ait-Nouri miss this contest, it would effectively rule out a switch to a back three unless Nuno was prepared to move Nelson Semedo to left wing-back.

Silva is expected to retain his place in attack ahead of Willian Jose, while Raul Jimenez is still waiting for medical clearance as he continues his recovery from a fractured skull.

Wolves possible starting XI: Patricio; Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Kilman; Dendoncker, Moutinho; Otasowie, Vitinha, Traore; Silva
