3 clubs in Europe that are punching above their weight this season
2. Wolverhampton, English Premier League, Position: 9th
Wolverhampton have traveled to London on five occasions this season and have not lost a single game. The most recent result being the drubbing of Tottenham at Wembley where they came out with a scoreline of 1-3 giving Mauricio Pochettino his first defeat against a newly promoted club.
Apart from embarrassing Tottenham, they’ve also defeated Chelsea. The Wolves soared through even when they met Manchester United, Arsenal and the ruthless army of Pep Guardiola’s men, taking home a point from each of those games. So much so that they even beat Liverpool 2-1 in the FA Cup recently.
With the influence of their super agent Jorge Mendes and the tactical nous of Nuno Espirito Sancho, Wolverhampton have become a team capable of fighting for a Europa League spot. Only time will tell if these are just good times for the Wolves or if they are the real deal.
