The 2021/22 season is almost over and Wolves still have faint hopes of securing European football.
Finishing fourth is out of the question now after some disappointing results recently.
But it’s possible Wolves could still qualify for the Europa League or the Europa Conference League.
As things currently stand, Wolves have 49 points from 32 games played. The club are two points behind Manchester United and West Ham United. They’re six behind Arsenal, and eight behind Tottenham Hotspur.
Six games remain, and here’s how things could pan out for Wolves…
Manchester City at home (TBC) – Manchester City 2-0 win
This game was supposed to be taking place this weekend. But Pep Guardiola’s side are in action against Liverpool in the FA Cup.
It hasn’t yet been announced when it will be rescheduled for.
But whenever it takes place, Wolves will be in for a really difficult game.
Wanderers came so close to actually taking a point off City in the game at the Etihad earlier this season. Few will be forgetting that Joao Moutinho handball decision in a hurry.
But Wolves have struggled at home at times this season. And City are simply ruthless.
Burnley away (24/4) – Wolves 1-0 win
Burnley have proven something of a bogey team for Wolves in recent times.
One of the very lowest points last season was that 4-0 thrashing from the Clarets at Molineux.
Thankfully, Chris Wood is no longer leading the line for Burnley. The striker did score the winner against Wolves last week for his new club Newcastle United though.
Wanderers feel due for three points against Sean Dyche’s side, and have obviously been solid on the road this season.
Brighton at home (30/4) – Wolves 3-0 win
Brighton started the season very promisingly.
They were scoring a decent amount of goals to go with the good football they were playing.
But Graham Potter’s side have scored just seven Premier League goals in 2022, and are really lacking quality just at the moment.
It’s a great chance for Wolves to take all three points.
Chelsea away (7/5) – Chelsea 1-0 win
Wolves held Chelsea to a draw back in December, which was a really solid result.
But it will be tough going to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have so much quality, and are also no longer in the Champions League, which will be good for their general fatigue levels.
Norwich City at home (15/5) – Wolves 2-1 win
Wolves were dumped out of the FA Cup by Norwich back in February, and hopefully revenge will be on the cards for that.
That was a big opportunity missed for Wolves against the side bottom of the Premier League.
The Canaries are scrapping for survival, but there are no excuses for Wolves.
Wanderers may well have Ruben Neves back available again for this game, which would be a big boost.
Liverpool away (22/5) – Liverpool 3-1 win
Jurgen Klopp’s side are simply formidable right now.
The Reds are just packed with quality, and those attacking options are just scary.
Wolves came so close to stealing a point in the reverse fixture at Molineux. Divock Origi scored right at the death following a monstrous defensive effort from Lage’s side.
While Wolves will be hoping to exact revenge, Liverpool might just have too much at Anfield.
