Wolves aren’t looking quite their normal selves this year. Daniel Podence is covering for Diogo Jota quite nicely, and the midfield is as impressive as always, but Adama Traore hasn’t quite found his feet this season, and they’re seriously missing Matt Doherty. Semedo is a talented player, but needs time to adjust.
Fernando Marçal, Ruben Vinagre, and the young Rayan Aït-Nouri have tag-teamed to cover for the injured Jonny, but Wolves left flank has still looked susceptible to the counter so far this season. Still, they’re a powerful side, and not one to be taken lightly.
They’ll be an obstacle, but if Arsenal can do as West Ham and Man City have, and get behind their backline, we can find quite a bit of joy. We’ve been regularly successful against the Wanderers, and let’s hope it can continue.
Predicted Finish: 9th.
The Foxes, as could be said around this time last season, sit top of the table. Brendan Rodgers has worked another tactical masterclass up to this point, resting players strategically throughout the season to maximize their ability while keeping them healthy. His lineup has already been Swiss-cheesed by injuries, and it’s clear he wants to buck that trend as soon as he can.
They’ve only lost to Villa and West Ham, two sides with a penchant for giant-killing this season, and have proven they can go toe-to-toe with the big teams consistently. They’re a team to watch.
However, they’re also a side that starts well, but gets worse throughout the year, as their aging side begins to take its toll. If they can turn that around, it might spell greater success than they’ve had since their miracle in 2015/16, but they’ll be our main contender for fifth place in the table, assuming we can get that high.
