In their first season back in the Premier League, Wolves have an incredible opportunity to secure European football next year. All they have to do is beat Fulham at Molineux this Saturday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have been wonderful all season.

It’s impossible to pick a player of the year as everyone in the starting XI has been consistently excellent.

A place in the Europa League would be an excellent reward for the club’s incredible work on and off the pitch.

Despite having a huge disadvantage compared to Leicester and Watford, Wolves currently sit seventh in the Premier League.

The Wanderers have 54 points, whereas Leicester have 51.

Everton sit at ninth with 50 and a plus-six goal difference over Watford.

 

As shown by the table, Wolves’ Europa League place rests in their hands.

Manchester City will likely beat Leicester next Monday, meaning there shouldn’t be any pressure on Wolves against Liverpool on the final day of the season provided Nuno’s squad beat Fulham.

Watford could nick European football from Wolves by beating City in the FA Cup final, but again you’d expect Pep to do the pack a favour.

To take advantage of Leicester and Watford’s difficult matches against the Premier League champions, Wolves must not take Fulham for granted.

The Wanderers’ record against the bottom five has been appalling, and Fulham have won three on the bounce.
