Wolverhampton Wanderers crashed to another defeat in the Premier League at the weekend, losing 2-0 to Brentford.

It was the worst performance of the season so far, and things are not looking too great just at the moment.

The win over Watford was huge given the nature of the previous three results.

To lose against newly-promoted Brentford, as impressive as they have been so far, is bitterly disappointing.

To lose without recording a shot on target means serious questions need to be asked.

Wolves again dominated possession, but the team seems to be having real issues fashioning big, clear-cut chances. And finishing, of course.

Raul Jimenez is still searching for his first goal of the season.

Maybe it was always going to take him some time after his awful injury last season.

But the Mexican hasn’t really come all that close to breaking his duck.

Perhaps, therefore, it is time for Lage to switch things up and give the 30-year-old some support.

Hwang needed from the start?

Maybe it is time for Lage to ditch one of the centre-backs and move to a back four, in order to provide Jimenez with a partner.

It would perhaps be a risk, but it just feels like someone like Hwang Hee-chan could make a real difference.

The South Korea international was looking razor-sharp in training last week and surely needs unleashing.

We know he was good in a partnership with Erling Haaland at RB Salzburg a few years back.

With Wolves really struggling to score goals right now, it has to be something for Lage to consider.
