WOLVES BOSS TO MISS CHELSEA GAME

Wolves manager Bruno Lage will miss the Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday after testing positive to Covid-19. The former Benfica man will miss the game at Stamford Bridge this weekend, but he should be back in the dugout for the visit of defending champions Manchester City to the Molineux on Wednesday night in a rescheduled Premier League clash.


Bruno Lage was absent for the Wolves pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the Chelsea game with goalkeeping coach Toby Roberts replacing him. Roberts told reporters that Bruno Lage has no Covid-19 symptoms and that the Portuguese tactician is still directing affairs and organising his team from a distance.

WOLVES LOSE TWO SUCCESSIVE LEAGUE GAMES

Wolverhampton Wanderers have now lost their last two games in the Premier League after they were beaten 1-0 at Burnley on Sunday. Czech striker MatejVydra scored the only goal of the game in the second half off the assist from Dutchman WoutWeghorst to hand his team three huge points in their quest to survive the relegation zone this season.


Wolves came into the Burnley game on the back of threedefeats in four games away from home and the Clarets were able to make it four defeats in five games away from the Molineux thanks to Vydra who applied the finish from close range for the winning goal in the second half. Vydra was the only change made by caretaker manager Mike Jackson from the team that beat Southampton 2-0 at home and the Czech Republic national team star was responsible for the lone goal in the game having replaced Ivorian player Maxwel Cornet in the Burnley starting XI.

WOLVES SET TO TRY TO SIGN BENFICA STAR SILVA

English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to add some spice to their fine form at the moment by trying to make a comprehensive list of the players they want to sign ahead of next season. According to a report from Jeunes Footeux, Wanderers have an eye on the Benfica star as Francisco Trincao’s struggles at Molineux continue.


Trincao is on a season-long loan from Barcelona, and Wolves have the choice to make his move permanent at the end of the season for around £25 million (Sky Sports). As things currently stand, Wolves would be wrong to exercise that option. Unfortunately, Trincao’s move isn’t working out. He is still having difficulty impacting games. And he’s scored just one goal all season, which came all the way back in August.

BRUNO LAGE FEARS REALIZED

Adama Traore left Wolves to complete a dream loan move to boyhood club Barcelona in a deal with an option to buy after the end of his contract. Bruno Lage had four wingers at his disposal before he sanctioned the move, in a space of a week he’s already sweating with injuries.

WOLVES LINE UP TRAORE REPLACEMENT

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly lined up a replacement for speedy winger AdamaTraore who's the subject of strong interest from fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur. Former club Barcelona are also monitoring the situation surrounding the 25-year-old Spanish international at the club.
