Wolverhampton Wanderers took a point away from Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they held Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea side to a 1-1 draw.
A last minute goal from Eden Hazard denies Nuno Santo’s side the three points which could have reduce the gap between the Blues and Wolves the 11 points for the Europa League spot, but there performance at the Bridge was once again a fine outing.
The West Midlands club have been performing on a different and improved standards at the top flight this season, with the record against the top six far better than likes of Fulham and Cardiff City who earn promotion for the 2018/19 Premier League season together.
Fulham and Cardiff have both been languishing in the Premier League and are both favourites to relegate at end of this season but Wolves, have been flying high as they sit eight on the table with 44 points.
With that, if Wolves can build and carry on with this performance, with the two reason below, Wolves could be new face to challenge for a top finish as from next season…..
Nuno Santo’s men are a well drilled unit
One thing Santo has got his team doing is playing to a system which suits and all the players are recognizable with.
This means Wolves can hold any opposition down to a stalement and get a point having done this with Manchester City, Arsenal and now Chelsea at the Bridge.
With a bit added quality to their team, it would be a major foundation to build on going far in the Premier League and could prove very fruitful for the Wolves in the long run.
There’s room for funds if they need to spend
Backed by mega rich owners, the club won’t be afraid splashing the cash if they feel with good signings the club can get into the Champions League spots.
There performance this season as shown they are willing to head into the European market and make big money performances, and they might well just do so again for 2019/20 Premier League season.
Focus in the summer window would be on a top striker, and a creative midfielder of which their financial muscle can handle.
