Wolverhampton Wanderers take on West Bromwich Albion tomorrow night, and Nuno Espirito Santo will be expecting a response from his side at the Hawthorns.
Last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Burnley was arguably the worst performance of the season.
It very much seemed like some players had already finished the season.
It was embarrassing and inexcusable, and there cannot be a repeat of that again.
It’s West Brom tomorrow night, and losing for a second time to the Baggies is unthinkable.
They’ll be well up for it, and one man Wolves need to be particularly wary of is Matheus Pereira.
The Brazilian has been their standout in 2020/21, and scored twice in the reverse fixture – albeit both his goals were penalties.
So far he’s got nine goals and five assists in the Premier League – four and two of which have come in Albion’s last four outings.
Shackling Pereira key to victory
Albion have a couple of other threats, but Pereira – who cost the Baggies £9 million in total (Express & Star) – is mainly the man that makes them tick.
When he’s on it, they can be a dangerous prospect.
Wolves have got to keep him quiet tomorrow night.
Letting him play is asking for trouble, and containing him will increase Wolves’ chances of three points.
