After picking up an injury on international duty, James McCarthy has returned to training this week, plus Gary Cahill and James Tomkins are fully fit for the Wolves game.

Furthermore, following positive COVID-19 tests, Jordan Ayew and Jack Butland are both available and amongst the squad following their periods of self-isolation.

The Eagles will be without the long-term injured players in Wayne Hennessey and Connor Wickham, whilst Hodgson also suggested the trip to Molineux comes too soon for Joel Ward.

Tyrick Mitchell will be subject to a late fitness test, and will be assessed before the squad travel after taking a knock in training.
