For the neutral, this season’s Premier League relegation battle must make for compelling viewing. For Wolves fans and supporters of all the teams involved in it, it is utter hell.
Just four points separate 12th down to 20th, and it is currently anyone’s guess as to who will go down.
Wolves have had several good chances to pull clear of the danger zone.
In recent weeks, they’ve had brilliant wins over Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
But Julen Lopetegui’s side have faltered, suffering defeats to the likes of Bournemouth and Leeds United.
Wolves should not be where they are given the quality they have.
But it just hasn’t been good enough this season, with the lack of goals once again making life very difficult.
Wolves have also been stung by a string of poor decisions. But Wolves have needed to be much better.
It’s 27 points taken from 28 games.
A few more wins might be enough for Wolves to stay up. But it could go right to the wire.
BBC Sport have taken a look at the current relegation battle, and judged each team’s chances of being relegated based on their remaining fixtures.
Using data from Gracenote, they believe there is currently a 20% chance of Wolves going down. Their findings are as follows:
- Crystal Palace – 10%
- Leicester City – 17%
- West Ham United 18%
- WOLVES – 20%
- Leeds United – 25%
- Everton – 37%
- Nottingham Forest – 46%
- Bournemouth – 55%
- Southampton – 73%
It can go either way for erratic Wolves, as BBC Sport share relegation chances
So BBC Sport believe there is currently a 20% chance of Wolves going down.
Some probably feel there is a greater chance than this, given the struggle to score goals.
It feels as though it can go one of two ways for Wolves.
The team has shown it is capable of pulling great results out of the bag, like against Liverpool and Tottenham.
But there is also the frustrating potential to slip up against teams around them, like against Bournemouth and Leeds.
Wolves really should be surviving easily with the players they have. But there is definitely potential for a very uncomfortable finish to the season.
