Wolves at home against Fulham – Saturday – 3:00pm GMT – Molineux Stadium.

Saturday’s clash between Wolves and Fulham, sees fourteenth take on eleventh in the League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have so far accrued no points in this season of the Premier League

It was three points secured for Wolves in their last fixture, beating Leeds United 2-1 at Elland Road.

Also, Wolves have a huge task to over-turn their opponents in this fixture, having already lost one game this season. Now they have 0 matches won, 1 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fourteenth place, with a total of no points having lost one game.

It is likely that five key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Bruno Lage and his Wolves team.

Fulham arrive at this game, having secured one point so far this season

Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Marco Silva won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.

Also, Fulham seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with one draws in one game. Their position is eleventh in the League and they have one point, that is, 0W, 0L and 1D having drawn one game.

A win in this fixture would take Fulham’s points to 4 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

Fulham will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (2). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Aleksandar Mitrovic (2), Marek Rodak, and Tosin Adarabioyo. Marco Silva will know the risks of constantly leaking goals throughout the season, with two goals conceded so far. He needs to find a way to shore-up the defence, in order that opponents are unable to take advantage of this.

Fulham’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Marco Silva, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.
