After what seems like forever, the Premier League is finally back to light up our screens! In preparation for the opening weekend, Millsy’s View is going to take a look at each team and review how they have done so far, how they might perform with the remaining fixtures and where they might finish in the league.
It is obviously going to be very different, as we have already seen with the return of the Bundesliga, where the lack of fans seems to give no home advantage. Also, many teams have come back seemingly better prepared, whilst conversely, some are not so well prepared. Nonetheless, in this article, we’re going to a look at Wolverhampton Wanderers and try to analyse how they might do.
The Story So Far
Wolves were enjoying another enjoyable season for them, as they consolidated the progress they made in the league last season and showed that they can compete both in the league and in Europe so far. Nuno Espirito Santo’s stocks have risen another level, as he continues his revolution at Wolves and turn them into serious contenders.
Raul Jimenez is on course to break his Premier League goals stat from last season, Adama Traore seems to get better every time he plays and could be in for a big move in the summer perhaps. They only lost 1 of their last 8 games before the coronavirus break came in, keeping themselves well amongst the race to qualify for Europe again next season and keep Wolves fans on their fascinating journey.
What’s Coming Up?
Wolves open up the restart of their season with playing against 3 of the bottom four. It would be a brave man who would bet against them taking all 9 points on offer for those games, which would give them a great start to the end of the campaign. Following that, they play against an Arsenal side, who just got exposed against Man City, showing that they really weren’t prepared for the season to restart.
Wolves could well roll right through them if they get on the kind of run that I’ve talked about above, which would put them in good stead when they play 4 top-10 teams and Crystal Palace in their remaining games.
Where Will They Finish?
Overall, Wolves have a really strong chance of achieving European football next season, I would strongly back them to finish in the Europa League places, especially if Manchester City’s CAS case doesn’t go as they would like. They will probably finish around 7th I would believe, they could still even pull off a shock when the Europa League starts back up again too.
