Wolves Preview – Nuno Santo not allowing for another no-show?

Last week’s top-flight action did not lack for drama. Chief among them was Wolves turning up at West Ham’s London Stadium as firm favourites only to depart with their tails between their legs following a damning 4-0 defeat. A result and performance that went a little under the radar, possibly due to Leicester City’s exploits away to Man City earlier in the day, but was arguably deserving of more scrutiny.

In his post-match debrief, Nuno Espirito Santo was unequivocal in his assessment of his team’s performance, frequently describing it as ‘bad’. He wasn’t wrong. Wolves struggled to impose themselves on proceedings, with Raul Jimenez – so often a thorn in the side of opposing defenders – marshalled to good effect by a Hammers defence that had conceded two goals in each of their opening two league games.

More worrying was the defence, which was too easily carved open and simply has to improve ahead Sunday. Because keep a clean sheet here and the three points should be theirs. Fulham shipped three or more each of their first three league games, all in defeat, making a second successive Wolves blank highly unlikely. Especially in a favourable fixture, last losing at home to The Cottagers in the league in 1965 (W9 D3).


Wolves Win to Nil



Fulham Preview – Cottagers staking early claim for relegation?

It has gotten so bad in West London that the chairman, Shahid Khan, felt compelled to issue an apology in the aftermath of Fulham’s latest performance in the 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage to Aston Villa. A move which was greeted with stern disapproval from manager Scott Parker. One suspects the players won’t have taken too kindly, either, who won’t be lacking in motivation ahead of Sunday’s trip to the West Midlands.

It has been a trip to forget in the past, though. The last time Fulham registered a league victory over Wolves in a league fixture was more than half-a-century ago, having earned only three draws from twelve subsequent visits to Molineux. Moreover, they’ve produced nothing in the way of credible evidence which would support their case for all three points, failing to even take a point from their first three league games.

Three games in and Scott Parker’s side sit rock-bottom of the league, with no points collected after losing efforts against Arsenal (0-3), Leeds (4-3) and Aston Villa. Conceding three or more on each occasion. Undoubtedly their standout performance thus far came in their only away outing, at Leeds, and they would have to replicate something similar, minus the shambolic defending, to have any chance here.

Wolves Vs Fulham Betting Advice

With no involvement in the Carabao Cup in midweek, Wolves should be the fresher of the two sides and will have benefited from a full week in training with this match specifically in mind. Not that they’ll need to overthink it – Fulham have tended to make it incredibly easy for the opposition so far, allowing three or more goals in all three league games this season.


Wolves Vs Fulham – Key Facts

  • In last season’s Premier League, Wolves claimed 15 points from a possible 15 versus the teams who finished in the bottom five positions. Fulham currently sit 20th.
  • Three defeats and at least three goals conceded in all three Premier League games by Fulham, as their return to the top-flight begins in rather ominous fashion.
  • The last time Fulham were victorious in league competition away at Wolves was 1965 – The Cottagers have only managed three draws in twelve visits thereafter.


Considering how abysmal Wolves were last time out, such short odds about them winning feel prohibitive. Yet this was a team which tended to sweep aside the lesser sides at home last term, with Wolves recording wins over all of the bottom five (four of those were to nil). I’m also expecting Nuno Santo to coax an emphatic response from his charges and this could spell further trouble for an alarmingly porous Fulham.
