Brighton vs Wolves
Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off sees Wolves traveling to Brighton.
Wolves started the day in 7th spot in the Premier League, with Manchester United and Tottenham having both overtaken Nuno Espirito Santo’s side after picking up victories on Saturday.
However, Wolves can reclaim 5th spot by picking up all three points at the Amex.
As for Brighton, they began Sunday 12th in the English top-flight, but Graham Potter’s side could finish the day 9th.
Ahead of the clash with the Seagulls, Nuno Santo had this to say about Brighton:
“It’s a very good team, a good manager, and good players who play well. We have to analyse and figure out the best way to compete, knowing that it’s going to be challenging for us. They have their strengths, but they have weaknesses.” As quoted by the Mail.

Wolves need to sign players
Given the fact that this is just their second season back in the Premier League, Wolves hovering around 5th spot is a superb achievement.
It gets even more impressive when you realise how many games they have already played this season. And how few players they have used.
According to the Mail, Santo has used just 19 players in the PL this term.
And after they finished 7th in the Premier League last season, which in itself was an amazing achievement, Wolves earned a Europa League spot. But they had to play six qualifiers earlier this campaign just to make it to the EL group stage.
While Wolves’ fairly small squad seem to be largely coping well at the moment, Nuno is aware that his side could do with some reinforcements, stating that it is clear Wolves have to bring in players:
“The decisions will come when they have to come but it’s clear that we have to bring in players.
“It’s not about being busy – it’s about anticipating what you need.” As quoted by the Mail.
