Currently, Wolves are sitting 17th in the Premier League table. They are only out of the drop zone on goal difference.

Julen Lopetegui has come in and had a great impact, taking seven points so far.

Some good players have been signed, and it’s now about them bedding in.

Given additions, and the arrival of Lopetegui, Wolves fans are optimistic that the team can pull away from danger.

And in the eyes of both Neville and Carragher, they will do that successfully.

Carragher said: “I just think the manager’s come in and done a really good job.

“Getting them a really tough team to beat. I think his experience in terms of managing Sevilla, Real Madrid and Spain – he’s a top manager.

“And I just think when you actually look at some of the quality, certainly in midfield with the likes of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho…

Neville added: “I don’t think Wolves will go down either by the way for the matter, just to be clear.”

Wolves should have just enough to stay up, but addressing goalscoring issue is paramount for Lopetegui

If Wolves are going to stay up this season, Lopetegui simply has to addressing the long standing goalscoring issue.

He’s improved the fitness levels and organisation of the team, which is good.

There has been a slight improvement in the final third. But Wolves are still way off where they need to be.

Ultimately, it is fixing this issue that will help Wolves get away from the danger zone.

There have been many positive signs so far in the Lopetegui reign, and hopefully everything will soon click.
