In the three games that the Wolves have played so far, it was seen that they were clearly the team with more number of attacking actions but failed to make most of the chances they had created. Despite being only second to Manchester City in the number of attacking actions performed, Wolves have failed to score a single goal in any of their three matches. They have made a total of 247 attacking actions which includes shots taken, crosses, dribbles, etc.
Wolves have attempted the most number of dribbles in the Premier League with 114 dribbles and also have a success rate of 76.3% which is the second-highest. With the likes of players like Adama Traore, Daniel Podence and Trincao in their attacking lineup, it is fair to say they have players who can easily beat players with their silky moves and blistering pace. Adama Traore displayed once again that he is one of the best dribblers in the Premier League against Manchester United, as he was unstoppable in that match. He was a menace to the United defenders as they were struggling to keep up with his pace.
Wolves are second to Liverpool in terms of the number of shots taken on goal. But Wolves have a low percentage of shots on target. Wolves have only been able to get 24.1% of those shots on target which averages to approximately 5 shots on target per match.
Wolves have been scrappy in front of goal when it matters the most. In the game against Manchester United, they could have been 3-0 up by halftime but were not able to convert the chances they created. Wolves have also been denied in front of goal by some excellent defending and saves by the opposition defenders and keepers respectively. David de Gea made a total of 5 saves in the game against Wolves while Aaron Wan Bissaka made a heroic goal-line clearance to deny Trincao. Hugo Lloris also made 6 saves to deny Wolves from scoring a goal.
Wolves have been impressive with the ball in terms of creating chances, but they also had a tough list of opening fixtures, playing their first three games against formidable opponents like Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
Wolves are second last on the table alongside Arsenal who also have failed to win their opening fixtures of the season. However, Bruno Lage and his men know they have to start picking up points as they are playing newly promoted sides Watford and Brentford after the international break ends.
