A young squad laden with great defensive and attacking talent, the premier league waits in anticipation for the arrival of the Wolves. Out of a league-high 82 goals, 47 were scored at home at a rate of 2.4 goals per fixture. A large chunk of their goals came from set pieces with a division-high figure of 21. Apart from their impressive attacking threat, they have an incredible defensive record as well. They conceded the least goals in the tournament (39) and their goalkeeper, John Ruddy had a division best total of 24 clean sheets. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s love for the 3-4-3 formation means their wing backs would be an important asset.
If this seasons Premier League was difficult then I think next season is gonna be even harder with what Wolves are bringing to the table. One of the strongest teams to ever get promoted and I think their presence will know encourage other teams to spend and improve #htafc

Player’s to watch out for:
Playing on the left flank, Barry plays a key role in the Wolves’ attack. With a league-high 14 assists, he provides an attacking threat both from open play as well as set pieces. Scoring 5 goals, he also created the most number of chances in the team (72).
Willy Boly played a pivotal role in their push for promotion since his arrival on loan. His defensive contribution to the wolves have been second to none with a total of 279 clearances, blocks and interception (CBI) is better than any of his teammates, with a rate of 11.5 minutes per CBI and the Wolves’ fans would hope his record improves with the added pressure of the premier league, now that he’s made his loan deal a permanent one.

Ruben Neves is probably one of the most exciting players in the championship and Premier league fans will be waiting anxiously to see whether he can light up the premier league just like he did the championship. Even though he only scored only six goals and had a single assist, he notched up a total of 93 efforts on target, out of which 90 were from outside the box and fans would be hoping to see some spectacular goals from the midfielder next season.
The Wolves top scorer stole the limelight from the championship last season top scoring as a midfielder with 17 goals. He had a total of 120 shots in the league which was the second-best tally in the league. He played the most important role for the team, playing in the centre of the park he pulled the string along with Neves and also scored goals. He is arguably one of Wolves’ most important assets and would hope he fires on all cylinders come the new journey in the premier league.
