The Cottagers come into this game on the back of a poor run of form which has seen them gain just one point from their last four league games. This run has included defeats against the likes of United, Tottenham and most recently Aston Villa.
In comparison, Wolves have made a better start to their campaign and currently find themselves in 12th place in the table. The Wanderers have gained 15 points following 4 wins, 3 draws and five defeats.
In their last league outing, Wolves stunned Tottenham Hotspur with two stoppage-time goals from Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina to secure a dramatic 2-1 victory at Molineux Stadium on November 11, 2023.
The visitors took the lead through Brennan Johnson's early strike, but Wolves dominated the second half and were denied a deserved equaliser by several missed chances.With seconds remaining, Sarabia volleyed home from close range to level the score before Lemina tapped in the winner from a cross to complete a remarkable comeback.
