Wolves are looking for their first points of the season as they travel to Watford this weekend.

Three 1-0 defeats so far see Wolves currently sitting in the relegation zone.

Despite the bad start, Bruno Lage has won plenty of plaudits for the style he has implemented.

Wolves have played well in each of their games, creating a plethora of chances.

The issue has been the finishing, and also a bit of bad luck to go along with that.

Given Wolves have lost every Premier League game so far, one wonders if Bruno Lage might be thinking about switching things up.

When he was appointed as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor, lots of fans speculated he might take the team away from the wing-backs system they had grown so used to over the years.

Lage adopted a 4-4-2 system during his time at Benfica and had great success with it.


Maybe this could/should be the time for the head coach to twist rather than stick.

It’s a possibility

Lage has stated after these opening defeats that he believes in his work.

He has given off the vibe that he is happy with what he has seen so far.

While it’s true there have been lots of positives, Wolves are still sat on zero points.

Maybe, with ‘favourable’ fixtures coming up against Watford, Brentford, Southampton and Newcastle United, this is the ideal time for change.

Raul Jimenez might be unavailable for the game, and that is potentially a chance for Lage to get two players up top in a partnership – Fabio Silva and new signing Hwang Hee-chan, for example.

It’d mean one of the centre-backs dropping to the bench, but surely now of all times it’s worth seeing if four-at-the-back can be feasible going forwards.
