EPL: Norwich vs Wolves




The recent two consecutive victories have helped Norwich revive the hope of relegation after a difficult period before. Despite being in high spirits, the next round “Canary” will face a big challenge called Wolves. In front of a stable opponent and also very thirsty for points to compete for tickets to the European Cup, it is difficult for Norwich to continue to extend the winning streak.

Letting Southampton take the lead in the 4th minute, however, later goals from Teemu Pukki and Grant Hanley helped Norwich come back to win 2-1. In addition to defeating Brentford also with a score of 2-1 not long ago, Norwich is showing very positive signs in the game. Remember, the previous 10 rounds they did not win, but drew 2 and lost 8. The consecutive bringing back 6 points helped Norwich revive the fighting spirit that seemed to have hit the bottom.

Currently, the home team of Carrow Road is in 19th place in the table with 8 points. Despite still being in the group holding the red light, Norwich are only 3 points behind the safe area. Things can completely change if Norwich play well in the next period. Of course, to do that, Norwich need to improve their attack, as they have only opened fire 7 times since the beginning of the tournament. Besides, the “Canary” defense needs to play more firmly, because they have conceded 27 goals, this achievement is equal to the bottom team Newcastle.

Wolves started the Premier League this season badly and lost all three opening rounds with a score of 0-1. However, things have quickly improved and now the visitors are even entering the group to attend the European Cup. After a total of 12 rounds, Wolves won 6, drew 1 and lost 5. Currently with 19 points, this team is in 6th place on the table. They currently stand above the big guys like Leicester, Everton, Man Utd or Tottenham and are only 1 point behind Arsenal. The last time they played, they also beat a high-performance opponent, West Ham 1-0 at home.

Thus, the last 5 rounds Wolves only lost 1, drew 1 and won 3. Especially Wolves also played very well away when they lost only 1/6 of the last trip away from home and won 4 of them. Disciplined play is bringing success to Wolves, when after 12 rounds they scored only 12 goals and conceded exactly 12 times. Referring to the confrontation history, everything is in favor of Wolves when they drew 1 and won 3 after the last 4 encounters with Norwich. In particular, the last 2 times as a guest at Carrow Road, Wolves both returned triumphant songs.
