Week seven of the Premier League sees Wolves host Crystal Palace in an 8th vs 9th place encounter.

Wolves are coming off the back of a 1-1 against Newcastle United, last time out, as a late Jacob Murphy free-kick cancelled out Raul Jimenez's opener. Meanwhile, Palace beat Fulham last week as they look to kick on with successive wins.

  • Team news

Adama Traore, Marcal and Joao Moutinho all look like they could return to the starting line-up this week with wing-back, Jonny Otto, their only player out. He's still recovering from a long term knee Injury. 

Crystal Palace will be boosted by the return of Jordan Ayew, who is now able to return to the squad after returning a positive Coronavirus test, which ruled him out for the past two games. 

Keeper, Jack Butland, is also available after he too returned a positive Covid-19 test, while trio James McCarthy, Gary Cahill and James Tomkins have returned to the training with the squad. 

Tyrick Mitchell has a minor knock and will be monitored until kick-off.

  • Key quotes

Roy Hodson  - 

"Wolves have had a very good start to the season. They're a very well oiled unit. We're aware their confidence is high and they have the same number of points as us."

"The only possession that interests me is the amount we have in the final third. We didn't have enough against Brighton but we did against Fulham. We know what we want to produce and what we need to do."

"I can't make any complaints about injuries at the back. The squad is as big and competitive as any time I've seen at the club. I'm doing my best to keep everyone happy and competing."

Nuno Espirito Santo -

 “It’s been basically the same as all the games. We had a good week and the approach is always on searching for improvements. At the moment of the season we are, we still have to improve a lot of things in our game."

“This is what we’ve been working hard on, and the approach is exactly the same, trying to pass as much details as we can on Crystal Palace, because it’s going to be a very tough game, they’re a very good team.”

  • Head to head

Wolves came out victorious the last time the two sides met winning 2-0 when the eagles visited Molineux last season. 

Crystal Palace have won three of their last five away league matches against Wolves. 

The game doesn't look likely to produce many goals as neither team has scored more than two goals in any of the 16 top-flight meetings.
