Opinion: Nelson Semedo Could Help Wolves Be In The EPL Top 4 if They Use This Lineup

Wolverhampton Wanderers ascent from the Championship to the higher classes of the Premier League lately has had a huge Portuguese impact. Supervisor Nuno Espirito Santo, Ruben Neves and the now left Diogo Jota - every single Portuguese public - assumed key functions in the club's advancement season from England's second-level in 2017/18. Since showing up back in the Premier League, the increases of individual Portuguese stars Joao Moutinho and Pedro Neto have raised the club's status to one fit for making the main four. 

While they may have lost 2-1 to Manchester City the previous evening, Wolves' exhibition was all that anyone could need confirmation that they'll be a genuine danger indeed in 2020/21. Particularly after the marking of Nelson Semedo. The previous Barcelona right-back's appearance was authoritatively reported by the club today, which means Espirito Santo has at long last discovered his Matt Doherty substitution. In truth, Wolves' most current Portuguese select is a critical redesign on Doherty and he will totally change the dynamic of Espirito Santo's beginning XI. 

Adama Traore will be liberated from the shackles set on him playing as a traditional back, with Semedo opening in behind the Spanish speedster. Beneath, we've made what we accept is Wolves' best XI for the remainder of the 2020/21 season and there's no denying the realities - this side can meet all requirements for next season's Champions League. A right-hand side of Semedo and Traore offers ridiculous movement, innovativeness and - most importantly - balance. 

Daniel Podence is the unfortunate party to pass up a major opportunity in assault, yet there's simply no chance you can seat the erratic riddle that is Traore. We've likewise discarded common left-wing back Jonny Otto for summer enlist Marcal, given that the previous is probably going to miss a significant part of the period through injury. The remainder of the group is covered with quality. You won't find many preferred back-threes over Coady, Boly and Saiss, while Patricio is a truly a-list goalkeeper. 

Moutinho and Neves is a midfield matching befitting of a world class Premier League group, with the two regulars in the Portuguese public group. At that point you have Jimenez up top, one more player who falls hazardously near - if not into - the a-list section. In his 78 Premier League appearances, the Mexican striker has scored 32 goals and contributed with 13 helps, scoring in Wolves' initial two Premier League games this season. Neto and Traore either side of the 29-year-old with Podence, Fabio Silva and Vitinha as rivalry for the three forward jobs? Not awful Wolves, not terrible by any means. 

We haven't referenced the adaptable and typically splendid Leander Dendoncker. While he doesn't make our beginning XI, the Belgian is a quality choice in both midfield and at focus back. New marking Ki-Jana Hoever will likewise give heavenly rivalry to Semedo in the conservative back job. Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton should be exceptionally careful about the danger presented by Espirito Santo's crew in 2020/21.
