Why Daniel Podence is missing for Wolves vs Norwich

An explanation for Daniel Podence missing out on Wolves’ clash with Norwich City has been provided.

Norwich vs Wolves

Wolves are set to face off with Norwich City in a Premier League clash shortly.

Bruno Lage and co. have had a solid start to the campaign and kicked off at Carrow Road 6th in the Premier League table.

However, they are now facing something of a new-look Norwich side.

The Canaries had a torrid start to the campaign which saw them fail to pick up a single win in their first 11 league games of the campaign.

But they would then see off Brentford in Daniel Farke’s last game as manager. Then, this past weekend vs Southampton, Dean Smith would take charge of his first game as Norwich boss and come away with a 2-1 win.

So, whilst a Wolves win does seem likely on paper, the tie may be closer than people are expecting.
