Successive 1-0 victories in the Premier League have rocketed Wolves up the table and with plenty to read into the opening fixtures of the season, here are five things we spotted from Monday night’s victory over Leeds United at Elland Road.
1. PREMIER LEAGUE RECORD
Despite having much to improve on from their first five matches of the 2020/21 season, Wolves have shown the mark of a great team when they can still win even if not performing at their very best. Thanks to the opening day victory against Sheffield United and back to back 1-0 wins against Fulham and Leeds United, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have picked up nine points from a possible 15.
In doing so, they have become the first Wolves side in Premier League history to win three of their opening five games, as well as earning that achievement in a top-flight campaign for the first time since 1979/80, when a John Barnwell gold and black side finished the First Division in sixth position.
