Fulham were only promoted from the Championship last season but the Cottagers are very much in with a shout of qualifying for European football, as Wolves did in their return to the top flight in 2018/19. Marco Silva’s side are currently sixth in what is likely to be a European spot given Manchester United and Newcastle United contest the EFL Cup final.
After a run of consecutive defeats against Newcastle and Tottenham, Fulham have bounced back and are now unbeaten in three matches. Starting with a goalless draw against Chelsea, Fulham have beaten Nottingham Forest and Brighton to sit just four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. However, it’s worth noting that some of the teams around Fulham have as many two games in hand on the Cottagers.
Wolves, meanwhile, moved themselves away from the relegation zone recently but they aren’t in the clear. Having been in the relegation zone for quite some time, Julen Lopetegui’s side went on a run of 10 points from a possible 15 to crawl up the table.
That run included a 3-0 win over Liverpool as well as crucial victories over fellow relegation-battlers West Ham and Southampton, with Man City the only team to beat them. However, Wolves were brought back down to earth last weekend with a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth, which leaves them just three points clear of the drop zone.

Fulham vs Wolves match stats
Goals come at a premium in this fixture, with Wolves having kept clean sheets in each of their past four games against Fulham. At the same time, Fulham have kept clean sheets in each of their last three Premier League matches despite facing 43 shots across those games.
However, Bernd Leno may not be as busy as he has been in recent weeks. While they have had 269 shots overall, Wolves have only hit the target 77 times in the Premier League this season; only Bournemouth (75) and Nottingham Forest (68) have had fewer shots on target in the division.
