Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo refuses to let his most important stars rest for Espanyol trip despite winning the first stage of the Europa League stand with 4-0
- Wolves believed that they took a full team to face Espanyol in the second leg
- Only Jonny stays behind after he left Molineux in a protective boot on Saturday
- Nuno is allowed to juggle the team, but it is a surprise that he has not left any key figures behind
- Raúl Jimenez, Conor Coady, Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore expected to travel
Nuno Espirito Santo has refused the chance to give his Wolves stars a respite for their Europa League second leg with Espanyol – even though they are 4-0 higher than the first leg.
Wolves are believed to take a full team to Barcelona, leaving only the Spanish broad player Jonny after leaving Molineux in a protective boot after last Sunday’s 3-0 win over Norwich.
Although Wolves boss Nuno is allowed to juggle his starting XI, it is a small surprise that he has not left any key figures behind.
Nuno Espirito Santo rejected the chance to give his Wolven stars a breather against Espanyol
This is despite the fact that Wolves took 4-0 from La Liga at Molineux in the first leg last week
However, Raúl Jimenez, Conor Coady, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore and Diogo Jota were expected to travel.
This will be Wolves’ 45th league match of a season that began last July against Northern Ireland club Crusaders, in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.
The possible two-year ban from Manchester City from the Champions League means that fifth place in the Premier League may be good enough to earn a place in Europe’s most important club competition next season.
Wolves also have another major race in the Champions League race just three days after this – in Tottenham on Sunday.
Wolves are now 8th in the Premier League and beat Norwich City 3-0 on Molineux on Sunday
