Ones to watch

Wolves: Adama Traoré

The moment Adama Traoré came on against Leicester City on matchday 26, it seemed as if Wolves got a second wind, but his presence wasn’t enough for Espirito Santo’s side to claim all three points. Nevertheless, he’s arguably the most improved player in this season’s Premier League and will no doubt give Norwich’s full-backs something to think about.

Key stat: Adama Traoré has completed the most take-ons (135) in the Premier League.

Norwich City: Emiliano Buendía

With each passing weekend it feels more and more that Norwich will be making a swift return to the Championship, but to say their football doesn’t belong in England‘s top division would be unfair.

Emiliano Buendía, no matter what happens, will likely be playing at the highest level next season. In the race for this season’s playmaker award, only Kevin De Bruyne (16) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (10) have created more goals than him (7).

Key stat: Only Kevin De Bruyne (94) has created more chances in the Premier League this season than Emiliano Buendía (69).

Team news


Norwich City

Squawka prediction

Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool have been the only teams to leave Wolves with all three points this season. Chances of Norwich joining that exclusive group, when you factor in their recent form, seem an outside shot at best.

Scoreline prediction: Wolves 2-0 Norwich City
