Diogo Jota predicts Wolves to stay up this season

Former Molineux hero Diogo Jota has predicted that Wolves will stave off relegation come the end of the season.

Julen Lopetegui’s side took a point against in-form Fulham on Friday night.

But Wolves sit just three points above the drop zone at the moment, and it could potentially go right down to the wire.

But fans have been encouraged by what they have seen from the team under Lopetegui since he came in.

Wolves are competing much better, are more organised and carry slightly more of a goal threat.

Some good players joined the club in January, so there is a reasonable chance Wolves won’t be in a dogfight come the end of the season.

Former Molineux star Jota has been speaking about Wednesday’s game between Liverpool and Wolves.

He does not believe his former club will be relegated.

He said (Liverpool official): “Yes, I believe they will stay up – I just hope it is not with our help [on Wednesday]. They beat us already in the league with a great result for them and we played Wolves already three times this season, this will be the fourth time, so we are used to each other, let’s say, already.

“I know the way they can compete and it’s really important that we avoid their confidence going up because in the end this is the Premier League and everybody can beat everybody.”

Jota recently made his return to action after a calf injury.

He was on the sidelines for around four months, and is looking to help Liverpool finish in the top four after a poor season from the Reds so far.

Wolves are well placed to stay up, as Diogo Jota makes survival prediction

Wolves are definitely in with a great chance of staying up.

Comparing the squad against those of the other clubs around Wolves in the table, it is perhaps the strongest.

But it is going to come down to desire and hard work, as much as it is quality and squad depth.

Lopetegui has come in and instilled a real competitiveness again, and this should give a really good chance of survival.
