✔ Goalkeepers: Patricio (£5.0) kept 3 cleansheets in preseason, and 1 was against Man City. He made plenty of great saves in that match, and was the star of the penalty shootout. Back up goalkeeper Ruddy (£4.0) only got to play 45mins.
✔ Defenders: The back 3 of last season still hasn't changed, Boly (£5.0), Coady (£5.0) & Bennett (£5.0) are still the core of the defence. Bennett is the only one who got an attacking return among the 3 centre backs. Jonny (£5.5) is still the first choice left wingback, he started all four matches, and was able to provide 2 assists. Second choice left wingback Vinagre came in as a substitute 4 times and was able to get 1goal + 1 assist. Doherty (£6.0) is still out with injury.
✔ Midfielders: Traore (£5.0) has been playing as the right wingback, covering for the injured Doherty and he did provide an assist. Dendonker (£4.5) also got an assist in the 4-0 win over Newcastle. Moutinho (£5.5) has been brilliant, getting 3 assists. He has definitely formed a strong partnership with Neves (£5.5). They are both on set-pieces and Neves also takes penalties. Gibbs-White (£5.0) is one to watch, he has started 3 of the 4 matches, he scored 1 goal.
✔ Forwards: Jota (£6.5) has been the standout so far, getting 2 goals & 2 assists in 4 games. Jimenez (£7.5) came back late to preseason, but to the 2 Europa qualifier games and he scored 2 goals in the 2nd leg. New signing Cutrone (£6.0) has definitely been brought in to provide competition and cover for Jota & Jimenez.
BEST CHOICES: Patricio (£5.0), yes Wolves have tough fixtures in the beginning but the Portuguese international can give us a lot of save points and it wouldn't be surprising if Wolves did get that odd cleansheet against the big boys. Moutinho (£5.5) & Neves (£5.5), both have great potential, on set-pieces and penalties respectively. Jota (£6.5) & Jimenez (£7.5), they are very good choices, I guess it will just depend on your budget.
