The pack has responded to Wolves’ 19/20 Premier League fixtures, and they’re not particularly thrilled about the first and last matches both being away.
Wolves’ and every other Premier League club learned their fixtures for the upcoming season today at 09:00.
There’s only two months left until the start of the Premiership and Wolves fans can’t wait to see Nuno Espirito Santo’s team grace the pitches of Molineux and other stadiums.

Wolves’ 19/20 Premier League fixture list
Similar to Wolves’ return to the Premier League last season, Nuno’s men have a tough opening four fixtures for the 19/20 campaign.
Wolves will fight Leicester (A), Manchester United (H), Burnley (H), and Everton (A) all in August.
The matches are slated for Saturday at 15:00, but they will all move to Sunday if Wolves progress through their opening qualifying rounds of the Europa League.
Leicester will again be a tough away trip, Man United won’t be as toothless as they were in the FA Cup QF, and Burnley will be an immovable bus.
The opening four fixtures are difficult on paper, but the pack should believe in their team being able to beat whoever they square up against.

“Boxing day home – hallelujah”
Wolves posted their 19/20 Premier League fixtures list on Twitter and the pack has responded.
Some fans were understandably upset that the first and last matches are away to Leicester and Chelsea, while others were excited about the Molineux atmosphere that awaits Manchester City on Boxing Day.
First & last match both away 😡

Certain members of the pack were a bit optimistic saying Wolves will be in the top four at Christmas, meanwhile one fan pointed out that the season ahead isn’t as daunting as last year’s.
At least top 4 at end of November, Xmas is a worry

Doesn’t seem so scary this season 😀

Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez, and Joao Moutinho will all don the gold and black on August 10 (11), and – hopefully – they’ll deliver more unforgettable moments of magic.
