    Team news

    Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has a full-strength squad available against Bournemouth.

    Wing-back Jonny has suffered no ill effects following his return from an ankle injury at the London Stadium.

    Bournemouth will make a late call on the fitness of Joshua King.

    The striker limped off after a crunching challenge from Crystal Palace's Gary Cahill on Saturday but his ankle injury is not as bad as first feared.

    Midfielder Philip Billing is also close to returning after an ankle injury.

    • Bournemouth have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 13 league matches, conceding 25 goals across this spell. It's the longest current run without a clean sheet in the Premier League.
    • Steve Cook, Lewis Cook and Adam Smith were all booked in Bournemouth's last match against Crystal Palace, taking the Cherries' yellow card tally up to 60 for the season. With eight games still to play, it's already Bournemouth's joint-highest yellow card total in a single top-flight season (level with 2018-19).
    • Wolves duo Adama Traore (six assists) and Raul Jimenez (three assists) have combined for a league-high nine
    • Premier League goals this season. Overall, Traore has provided eight assists in the competition this season, with no Wolves player ever providing more in a single campaign.
    • Raul Jimenez has scored 14 Premier League goals this season, a record for a Wolves player in a single season in the competition. The last player to score more in a single top-flight campaign for the club was John Richards in 1975-76 (17).

    Charlie's prediction

    Adama Traore in action after coming on as a substitute for Wolves in their 2-0 win away to West Ham at the London Stadium 0:50
    Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo says he is not concerned about the future of Adama Traore

    This will be a continuation of the power, balance and refreshing look that Wolves have. They were patient at West Ham, but you saw immediately with the counter-attack and link-up of Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez, how much of a threat they can be. Pedro Neto scored off the bench but Adama Traore will start. They have the lovely midfield of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves, and they are strong at the back, so this should be a comfortable victory.

    I did not see much of Bournemouth but what I did see made me think they looked a bit dejected. There is not enough going for them at front and they can be punished. I am sticking with Wolves for the top four and they will give it a good go. Everybody seems to be fit again, but Traore coming off the bench was just madness. He will start and cause problems.
