Nuno Espirito Santo will be hard at work while his players turn out for their countries over the international break.

Wolves need to improve going into the festive period, but the manager certainly has the quality to turn things around.

It hasn’t been a bad start, but there is certainly a lack of creativity, ingenuity and urgency at the moment.

Hopefully things will change for the better, but just where exactly will the points come from over the next couple of months?

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side look like they mean business this term, and briefly went top of the Premier League last week.

They are very much in form, but they won’t be able to call on Danny Ings who is injured, so the spoils being shared at Molineux seems reasonable.

Draw. (Prediction, 1-1)

Arsenal (A)

Arsenal are pretty erratic this season.

They were brilliant against Fulham and Manchester United, but the way they were humbled by Aston Villa has got to give Wolves confidence.

Win. (Prediction, 1-2)

Liverpool (A)

Perhaps the hardest fixture Wolves will play all season.

 

Liverpool at home is a daunting prospect for any side, and the defence will have to be absolutely on it to prevent Jurgen Klopp’s side rattling in a few goals.

The Reds might just have too much, but hopefully there will be a quiet afternoon in store for Diogo Jota.

Lose. (Prediction, 1-3)

Aston Villa (H)

Villa are going very well right now and definitely have a scary attack.

Hopefully by the time this game rolls around, Dean Smith’s side will have hit another bump in the road.

Wolves did the double over their Midlands rivals last season and will hopefully have the belief to keep the good form against them going.

Win. (Prediction, 2-1)

Chelsea (H)

Chelsea appear to be getting into gear now and their new signings have all made a positive impact.

The Blues’ squad is just littered with quality and Wolves will do really well to prevent Frank Lampard’s outfit scoring.

This same fixture ended 5-2 to Chelsea last season, and they might just have too much once again.

Lose. (Prediction, 2-3)

PREDICTION: Wolves to take seven points from the next 15 available, giving 20 points after 13 games played.
