Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match will be held at the Molineux Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time on Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers kicked off their 2022-23 Premier League campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Leeds United away from home at Elland Road in the Premier League last weekend. Daniel Podence put Bruno Lage’s side in the lead after six minutes, and Rodrigo restored parity in the 24th minute. Then in the 74th minute, an own goal from Rayan Ait-Nouri saw Leeds score what proved to be the winning goal.

Wolves are 14th in the Premier League table at the moment with no point from one match. The Wanderers finished 10th in the standings last season with 51 points from 38 games. Lage’s side will be determined to at least end up in the top 10 this campaign.

The Wanderers have been quite busy in the summer transfer window. Wolves have brought in Hwang Hee-chan, Nathan Collins and Goncalo Guedes.

Team News:

Hwang Hee-Chan will lead the line for Wolves, with Podence, Pedro Neto and Morgan Gibbs-White playing behind him in a three-man attacking midfielder.

Fulham

Fulham are playing in the Premier League this season after winning promotion from the Championship at the end of the last campaign. The Cottagers are expected to fight for survival in the English top flight this campaign, but they have started their campaign in style.

Marco Silva’s side played out a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Craven Cottage in London in the Premier League last weekend. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored both the goals for the Cottagers, who are now 10th in the standings with one points from one match.

Fulham have been quite active in the summer transfer window. The London club have brought in Joao Palhinha, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno and Issa Diop.

Team News:

Aleksandar Mitrovic will lead the line for Fulham as usual. Andreas Pereira will be the main creative player in attacking midfield.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Goncalo Guedes could make his debut for Wolverhampton Wanderers against Fulham.
  • Issa Diop could make his debut for Fulham against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers had 60% of the possession against Leeds United.
  • Fulham had 33% of the possession against Liverpool.
  • Fulham had three shots on target against Liverpool.

Conclusion

Wolverhampton Wanderers do have a better team than Fulham do, and playing at home will also give them an advantage. However, the London club will head into the match against Wolves on the back of a very encouraging 2-2 draw with Liverpool and will not make it easy for Bruno Lage’s side. Wolves, though, should still win the Premier League game. Just.

Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers to win 2-1

Best Odds: 6/1
