Bruno Lage might just play a back four today against Norwich City

Wednesday night saw Wolves put to the sword by Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Wolves tried to match Pep Guardiola’s side, but ultimately the visitors’ quality was simply too much, and they played some exceptional football at times, with Kevin De Bruyne the chief orchestrator.

Today should be an easier game for Wolves, against a side that have already been relegated.

Norwich have won just five games all season, and conceded a whopping 78 goals.

That said, Norwich did hold Wolves to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture, and did put Wolves out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory.

Despite previous struggles, it’s a game Wolves should be winning.

And one wonders if Bruno Lage might be thinking of doing something different with his system.

Towards the end of some games this season we have seen Wolves hook a defender and change to a back four.

We saw it most recently against Chelsea. It helped Wolves get back into the contest and ultimately take a point.

It sometimes helps Wolves become more offensive and to get more players in the box.

Surely, Lage has to think about using the system from the start against Norwich. He hasn’t done it all season, but this feels like a great opportunity.

A great opportunity for Wolves for four at the back against Norwich

Really there are no reasons for Lage not to try a back four from the start against Norwich.

There have been suggestions that he could try to implement a back four more often next season. That was the system he used at Benfica.

So it’s a good opportunity to test it out, against a team that have been all over the place defensively.

Wolves are currently on a five-game winless run. So surely something drastic has to change so that the season doesn’t finish really badly.
