Santo’s club needs a new strategy
Wolverhampton Wanderers got back to winning ways in their last Premier League match, for their sole victory in four league matches. It was the seventh time in eight Premier League fixtures involving Wolves to see both teams score, and the fifth time in the last seven that the result was either 2-1 or 3-2 to the victor on the day. Tough to beat, Wolves’ tally of five defeats so far is a joint league-low if excluding runaway leaders Liverpool. Furthermore, seven of Wolves’ eight competitive defeats (from 39 matches played this season) have come by a one-goal margin. However, they have been behind at half-time a league-high 13 times (56.52% of Premier League games) this season.
Could Jurgen Klopp win seven times in a row?
