After winning promotion to the Premier League in 2018, Wolves are readying themselves for their fourth consecutive season in the highest tier of English Football. Having finished in 13th place last season, Wolves will be looking for an improvement, having been challenging for Europe in the campaigns before that.
Wolves are also set for the first season under Bruno Lage’s management as head coach, following the departure of Nuno Espírito Santo to Spurs. After the absence of key goal-scorer Raúl Jiménez due to a head injury from an aerial collision last season, Wolves’ results deteriorated in the second half of the campaign, but they will be boosted by Jimenez’s return this term.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Wolves – from their upcoming league fixtures to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
When is the next Wolves Premier League game?
Life in the Premier League remains tough for Bruno Lage as his Wolves side were beaten 2-0 by newly-promoted Brentford last time out. They travel to fellow strugglers Southampton this weekend.
Goals have been hard to come by, with Wolves only scoring in one match so far – a 2-0 win over Watford. They did score twice in Wednesday’s League Cup tie with Spurs, but Wolves were ultimately beaten on penalties at Molineux.
What are the odds that Wolves win the next game?
With Wolves’ profligacy in front of goal and Southampton having drawn their last four games, it’s no surprise that it’s 11/5 for the draw. Wolves are priced at 7/4 for a second away win of the season.
Striker Raul Jimenez has been getting himself into promising positions and has had 14 shots in five appearances. He’s 11/2 (was 9/2) to open his account for the season.
What’s the latest Wolves transfer and injury news?
Wolves will assess the fitness of Yerson Mosquera and Rayan Ait Nouri after both were substituted in the cup tie with Spurs, the former only lasting nine minutes on his debut.
Who are Wolves’ key players?
Wolves will be delighted to welcome back Raul Jimenez to the team from injury this season, with his goals having proved crucial for the club in recent years. Elsewhere, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho will have key roles to play in midfield, while Adama Traore is a threat to any opposition club due to his lightning pace and power down the wing.

What are the Wolves’ odds to be relegated from the Premier League?
Winning the title won’t be at the forefront of the Wolves players or fans’ minds this season, so it’s understandable that their odds for doing so are 250/1 – it’s most definitely a long shot. Said fans might, however, be happy with a top-half finish; seemingly more achievable with odds of 10/3.
Who is the manager of Wolves?
Bruno Lage makes his bow with Wolves this season after succeeding Nuno Espírito Santo. With a history of Portuguese trophy wins, including the 2018/19 league title and 2019 Super Cup whilst coaching Benfica, Lage will be dreaming of similar at Molineaux this term.
Where is Wolves’ stadium?
Wolves play at Molineux Stadium, where they have been since 1889. The stadium was one of the first to install floodlights, enabling evening games with foreign teams. The stadium also hosted the first UEFA Cup Final in 1972.
