Wolves vs Fulham: Predictions
Fulham will be keen to register their first points of the new Premier League season when they travel to Wolves on Sunday afternoon.
After earning promotion from the Championship via the playoffs, the Cottagers have fallen to three defeats to open the 2020/21 campaign, conceding a massive 10 goals along the way — only West Brom (11) have allowed more.
Although highly fancied to challenge for European places this season, Wolves haven’t made the best start to the season, either, taking just three points from their opening three games and falling to a resounding 4-0 defeat against West Ham United in their last match.
Both Scott Parker and Nuno Espirito Santo will demand immediate improvement from their players, and this has the potential to be a genuinely entertaining encounter.

Wolves vs Fulham: Team Stats
As was the case the last time Fulham were in the Premier League, it’s been a case of defensive struggles so far this season, with Parker’s men unable to get to grips with the superior attacking talent on show in the top flight.
In Raul Jimenez, the Cottagers are coming up against a man on a mission having been unfortunate enough to score an own goal during Wolves’ 4-0 defeat to West Ham. Don’t let that fool you, though, the Mexican is second only to Mohamed Salah (129) in terms of shots in the Premier League since the start of last season. He already has two this campaign and will be sizing up that brittle Fulham defence.
Wolves vs Fulham: Team News
Wolves will be handing late fitness tests to duo Marcal and Daniel Podence ahead of this tie which may leave one of Wolves’ right-footed full-backs covering in the left-back spot for this fixture. Other than those two however, Wolves have a strong squad to pick from in this game.
Fulham are also looking relatively strong on the injury front, with only right-back Kenny Tete a fresh problem following a calf injury. Dennis Odoi or Ola Aina could come in to replace the Dutchman. Marksman Aleksandar Mitrovic will hope to be in the starting eleven this time around.
Regardless of which division they’re played in, games between Wolves and Fulham have generally been closely fought battles, with two or fewer goals separating the sides in each of their last seven meetings.
Wolves have only lost one of their last nine games against the Cottagers and we expect both of those trends to continue here.
