Jota on the Wolves bench as Arsenal go with 3-4-3 formation

Diogo Jota (£6.2m) finds himself on the bench for Wolves as Arsenal coe to Molineux.

Nuno Espirito Santo has gone with the 3-5-2 formation that usually features the Portuguese international, instead pairing Raúl Jiménez (£8.3m) with Adama Traoré (£5.8m).

The rest of the Wolves team is as expected, with Matt Doherty (£6.4m) and Jonny (£5.4m) providing width for the five-man midfield in front of a the settled back-three of Romain Saïss (£4.7m), Conor Coady (£5.1m) and Willy Boly (£4.8m).

Meanwhile, Arsenal have gone with a 3-4-3 formation for the second match in a row after deploying it with great success against Norwich.

Sead Kolasinac (£5.2m) is part of the back-three once again, while Kieran Tierney (£5.3m) and Cédric Soares (£4.8m) find themselves in midfield as wing-backs.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) sits on the left-hand side of the front-three, joined there Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) and Bukayo Saka (£4.7m).

Wolves XI: Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Boly; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Doherty; Jiménez, Traoré.

Arsenal XI: Martínez; Kolasinac, Luiz, Mustafi; Tierney, Xhaka, Ceballos, Cédric; Aubameyang, Nketiah, Saka.

    Bizarrely, arsenal dont look like conceding

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      That is bizarre.

    2. Hybrid.power

      Of course, I played Patricio over Martinez

    Start Pulisic please

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      He should do if lamps wants a win

  10. The Dance
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Repost bottomed:
    How would you rate these moves for a -8?

    Rashford + Jiminez + Cantwell > Pulisic + Kane + Greenwood?

    Season well over, so just taking some risks.

    Cheers guys.

      Yes if you just want to have a laugh, why not ? Go for it

        Cheers. Got to laugh really, can’t wait till this car crash season is over hehe

        1. Yozzer
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Same 🙂

          I think this last few gameweeks has been a bit of a lottery really.

          1. The Dance
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Sure has, whole season for me though, in total uncharted territory, and season was basically over by GW 15 or so 🙂

  11. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years

    Time to ship Jimenez?

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Last GW for Greenwood.

    2. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yep i’d say so, hardly prolific

    3. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Who for though? Non-utd strikers not shining.

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Vardy?

    4. Bartowski
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      perhaps but there's few strikers doing much of anything

    5. el polako
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Got enough cash to swap him for Kane vs BOU.

      Thing is not sold on Kane either.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah but it's Bournemouth.

      2. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I'm sold on Kane, but not Spurs

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I also dropped son

    6. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I dropped him for Kane last week.

  12. WannabeScout
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Jimmy + DCL > Kane + greenwood? I got exact funds before Greenwood rises

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      In a heartbeat

    2. Tinkermania
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think the pair you might regret it. Greenwood has had a great spell. If you think Spurs will get 6 pens between now and end of season, maybe.

  13. Nightcrawler

    Let saiss take it

  14. Kaiser123

    If i make a transfer and then FH. Does that transfer stick when reverting back to todays team

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Nope

    2. Dont give a fuchs
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No. Happened with me. I did Richarlison to pulisic and then activated FH. Richarlison is back in my team

  15. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Wolves playing too much in the centre. The wing backs need to stay wide to create the space in the middle.

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Did you watch the latest Coaches' Voice video by Steve Holland?

      Really interesting vid on how all the recent title winners attack in a 325 shape.

        1. diesel001
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Thanks. Will watch it after the game finishes.

            • 8 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Worth it!

            Teams sometimes play 235 when facing only one striker too. But similar principle.

    Dear Martin Tyler, it's not Dockerty

    1. SuperMane Returns

      .....and's it liveeeeeeeeeee

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Isn’t it?

      1. Says
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        no, it's Doherty, it's pronounced as it's spelled.

        Docherty is a different name.

    3. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think it is; Wolves fans call him 'Doc'.

      1. Says
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Docherty is a different name than Doherty

  17. _Ninja_

    After what we saw today, anyone getting Kane for Bournemouth?

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Big difference between United & Spurs attack.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Even newcastle put 4 past them

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Thanks 😛
        I'm still getting Kane.
        I don't learn from my mistakes 😀

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Spurs aren't as good as Man Utd. Especially offensively.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Better than newcastle?

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Might keep son

  23. NABIL - 1 season 1der
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    0.2 short from doing Jimmy to Kane. Aahh

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      You can always go for Deeney

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Seriously? I think vardy is a better call.. likes to go on a run

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Let's see how he play tonight.

          I like their next 3 games and they are desperate for wins/goals. Penalty is bonus.

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Yeah could be a masterstroke.

            WAT playing poorly though.
