Why you should back Wolves
Wolves are 5-2-1 in their past eight in all competitions and could be sharper after playing less than a week ago. Fatigue shouldn’t be an issue with six days to recover from a 3-2 victory in an FA Cup third-round replay with Brentford on Jan. 16. Wolverhampton outshot the Bees 21-9, and Matheus Cunha scored the extra-time winner on a penalty in the 105th minute after Nelson Semedo scored and Nathan Fraser got the equalizer in the 72nd minute.
Cunha and midfielder Pedro Neto are the engines of the attack, with Cunha scoring six league goals and setting up five. Neto has seven assists, tied for third-most in the league, despite missing nine of the 20 games. He is expected to return from his hamstring injury. Top scorer Hwang Hee-chan (10 goals) is on AFC Asian Cup duty with South Korea. See which team to pick here.
