Wolves roared back to form with a 4-0 thrashing of Watford last night.
The clashes with London clubs Arsenal, West Ham and Crystal Palace had been disappointing, with the performances gradually getting worse.
This eye-opening graphic from the Premier League’s Instagram page shows just how dominant Wolves were with their attacking play.
This data is a fair reflection of how the game panned out. Wolves roared out of the blocks and had the game sewn up within the first quarter.
Watford had a small rally either side of half-time, when Wolves knew the game was won and they also know they have the defensive structure to hold into leads.
But then Bruno Lage’s men did not just sit back, they went again and made it 4-0 through a sensational dink by Ruben Neves.

That meant that the club matched their highest ever Premier League victory, according to Opta, which has stood for over ten years.
That is a perfect way for Wolves to get back on track and a deserved reward for the way that Lage has made them more proactive this term.
There was a volley of goals in January matches against Sheffield United and Southampton and the aim has to be for Wolves to be comprehensive victors more often.
Any win would have done last night and Wolves got it in style.
