Wolves and Leicester City similarities
An image is doing the rounds on Twitter that is leading many people to believe Wolves could go on to win the Premier League next season.
The image in question compares Wolves start to the 2018/19 Premier League season with Leicester City’s start to the 2014/15 season, the season before the Foxes shocked the world and somehow won the Premier League.

The season before Leicester’s title-winning season, they started their campaign against Everton and drew 2-2.
The newly-promoted side also started this season vs Everton and also drew 2-2.
Leicester would then lose their second game of the season 2-0 to Chelsea.
Wolves did not lose to Chelsea in their second game.
But they did lose 2-0 to Leicester City.
Leicester were then held to a 1-1 draw vs Arsenal in their third fixture. Subsequently, Wolves were also held to a 1-1 draw against Manchester City.
Leicester would then finally pick up a 1-0 win in their fourth game of the 2014/15 season vs Stoke City.
Stoke are of course not in the Premier League this season, however, Nuno’s men would pick up a 1-0 win over West Ham in their fourth Premier League game.
Wolves vs West Ham
Wolves travelled to West Ham with neither side having won this season and West Ham without a single point in the league.
The game itself was pretty quiet until the second half.
Leonardo Bonatini came off the bench and probably should have scored for Wolves.
Raul Jimenez would also find himself in on goal but the forward scuffed his shot.
It would take until the 93rd minute for Wolves to break the deadlock.
New signing Adama Traore used his frightening pace to burst into the box and slot home for his first ever Premier League goal.
