Watford 1 – Wolves 2
Will Wolves be playing Europa League football next term?
After what happened to Burnley this season, do Wolves even want to play on Thursday nights in 2019-20?
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side boosted their chances of finishing seventh on Saturday with a 2-1 away win at rivals Watford.
Of course, Watford recently beat Wolves in the FA Cup semifinal. Watford will play Man City in the showpiece.
Goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota earned Wolves the away win.
Andre Gray scored for Watford early in the second half.
Arsenal, Man City & the Europa League
Seventh place will trigger a spot in next season’s Europa League if Man City beat Watford in the FA Cup final.
To be clear, if Watford win at Wembley, they’ll play in the Europa League next season.
So who will finish in seventh?
After beating Watford, and after Everton drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace on Saturday, Wolves are four points clear in seventh.
Everton have 50 points, as do Watford, while Leicester, who face Arsenal on Sunday, have 48 points.
If Arsenal beat Leicester at the King Power Stadium – Arsenal need to win to boost their Champions League hopes – the Foxes will have a mountain to climb to finish above Wolves.
