Good and bad results come in waves and the last what the Wolves played was bad as they were trailing behind for two goals against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup but somehow they managed to equalise in the last minute thanks to Doherty. The replay will take place at their stadium and it would be pity to get eliminated since they eliminated Liverpool in the previous round. In the previous league round they won Leicester 4-3 thanks to Jota’s goal scored in the stoppage time. Now, Boly is back in the defence, while Doherty jumps in the midfield.

They played a very good match with Arsenal and won great opponent by 1-0, but in the following round they lost to Bournemouth 2-0. Compared to team that faced Arsenal, forward Arnautovic was missing and instead had played A. Carroll. Now, Arnautovic might return to the starting line-up.
