Alarming statistic underlines the thing Wolves are just plain rotten at

Wolverhampton Wanderers fell to another defeat in the Premier League last night, and it was yet another goal conceded from a set-piece.

Wolves had actually looked decent in the first-half and dominated the ball.

They would then be made to pay, with Gylfi Sigurdsson swinging in a corner which was nodded into the far corner by Richarlison.

It was actually a very good header from the Brazilian, but him finding the space was the issue.

According to The Athletic’s Tim Spiers, that goal was the 13th Wolves have conceded from a set-piece in the Premier League season.

Alarmingly, that accounts for 26% of the total (50).

It is just further evidence that Wolves need to invest in some defenders this summer, preferably ones that are good man-markers and are aerially dominant.

Wolves have got to get it right this summer

It has become crystal clear that Wolves just can’t defend set-pieces.

26% is a very worrying figure.

The recruitment team need to ensure that the right kind of defenders are brought in this summer.

This is a big problem and can end up giving Wolves too much to do in games.
