Paul Merson says he just can’t see Wolves going down, despite last weekend’s defeat to Newcastle United.
Julen Lopetegui’s side came up short against the Magpies at St. James’ Park.
Wanderers lost 2-1, with Miguel Almiron scoring a winner late on for the hosts.
It was a good chance for Wolves to put a bit of daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.
But it wasn’t to be and at the moment, Wolves are just four points clear.
It is extremely tight down at the bottom of the Premier League. Just five points separate Southampton and 12th-placed Crystal Palace.
Calling which three teams will go down takes a brave man.
Wolves could very well be in trouble come the end of the season. But Merson can’t envisage the club being relegated.
Predicting Wolves to beat Leeds United 2-0 this weekend, he told Sportskeeda: “I just can’t see Wolves going down – they are a decent team under an experienced manager and I think they should win this game.”
Merson has been fairly unwavering in his opinion about Wolves not going down. He said the same ahead of the 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth.
Certainly, on paper, Wolves have a squad that is packed with quality and should not have any trouble.
Wolves will not go down if they beat the teams around them
Potentially it could be an uncomfortable finish to the season for Wolves.
Julen Lopetegui has done a lot of good things since he came in and has obviously taken the club up to 13th place.
But there are still issues. The biggest being the lack of goals.
One of the keys things for Wolves will be beating the clubs around them in the table.
Between now and the end of the season, Wanderers will take on Leeds, Nottingham Forest, Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Everton.
Wins against a few of those teams will surely make relegation very unlikely.
