Last Season's Performance

It shouldn't be the only statistic that matters, but last season Wolves created just 41 big chances, which are classified by Opta as opportunities that a team should reasonably expect to take.

It was the lowest number in the division by some distance.

When you sift through the campaign as a whole, the one recurring theme is the lack of excitement, the lack of thrills and spills, the lack of big chances. They scored 31 goals - no other team scored fewer. It just wasn't a very pretty season at Molineux.

In fairness, it could have gone a lot worse. They were bottom at Christmas - albeit having played only 14 games because of the World Cup interruption - and we know how seasons tend to finish for clubs propping up the table at the end of the calendar year.

Bruno Lage, the man who had overseen Wolves' awful start, made it to the first week of October before the axe fell. In came former Real Madrid, Spain and Sevilla head coach Julen Lopetegui, who eventually guided the team to safety with relative comfort in 13th place.

It may not have been fun, but at least under Lopetegui Wolves were able to retain their Premier League status and regroup this summer.

This Season's Prospects

All the Premier League prices seemed to hint at another season of struggle at Molineux, and it's easy to understand why.

Wolves offloaded old hands like Conor Coady, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Diego Costa, Raul Jimenez and lost star operator Matheus Nunes to Manchester City. 

Gary O'Neil is the man charged with leading Wolves this season after his impressive work at Bournemouth last term, and he has started in his new role better than many had anticipated.

Helped out by the creative force of Pedro Neto, who has recorded several assists, and the goal scoring exploits of Hwang Hee-Chan, Wolves' season form suggests they will confound the critics and survive comfortably this season.

2022/2313th (Premier League)
2021/2210th (Premier League
