Wolverhampton Wanderers’ 2-1 defeat to Cardiff on Friday means they are now without a win in their last six Premier League games and have lost all their momentum.
They have to try bounce back on Wednesday when they host Chelsea in the league and need to ensure they don’t get dragged into action at the bottom of the table.
Manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be without key midfield mainstay Ruben Neves, who has played every league minutes so far up to this point.
The £16million signing (BBC) is a vital part of the set-up in the centre of the park, but five yellow cards this season means he will be unavailable at Molineux against Chelsea due to a suspension.
Neves, 21, will leave a major hole in the team that Nuno needs to try fill and the solution lies in the shape of Morgan Gibbs-White.
Gibbs-White should be handed his first Premier League start against Chelsea, as he’s impressed on eight separate occasions off the bench already this campaign.
The 18-year-old is a central midfielder that would slot in well alongside Joao Moutinho in front of the defence and it would be great experience for him to play against the likes of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho.
He is a rising star that has shown he’s confident and mature well beyond his years, as he’s accurate in possession and adds an extra spark when on the ball too.
