Bournmouth 14 points played 8, Leicester 10 points played 7, Wolves 10 points played 6, Everton 9 points played 7, Watford 8 points played 6, West Ham 4 points played 6.
We obviously see the FA Cup as a fast track route into Europe. However ...
Do we have a better chance of getting in the the Europa by finishing 7th?
We’re the 6th favourites to win it at 14/1
Arguably 5th when you consider Arsenal and United play each other.
Now both these teams are chasing down Spurs who are now missing Kane.
If Spurs win the EFL trophy (in the final) and finish outside the top 5, if you finish 7th you’ll get a spot in the Europa.
We’ve got a small squad as it is but currently sit 8th, one point behind Watford.
What do we do?
Do we just go for it?
Do we hope spurs win the EFL cup and drop below 5th and go for 7th?
Do we hope Arsenal finish 6th but win the Europa League?
It’s quite a difficult conundrum if you ask me.
I fancy our chances in both the league and FA cup.
This 3-5-2/5-3-2/5-1-2-2/'Plan B'/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, the slight tweak to the Nuno blueprint (the fabled 'Plan A'/3-4-3) has been an absolute revelation. Is it becoming so successful that we're close to adopting it as the 'new Plan A'?
- Bennett’s Header was the first Wolves Premier League Goal by an Englishman, since Matt Jarvis put us in front on the final day 3-2 loss away at Wigan Atheltic in May 2012
- As already mentioned, Jota is the first Wolves top flight hat-trick since John Richards in 1977
- Moutinho also became the first Wolves player to assist twice in one top flight game, since Kevin Doyle in that 4-4 v Swansea City in April 2012
- Diogo’s 2nd was the club’s 100th PL home goal
- On top of this, he is only the 2nd Portuguese man to score a Premier League Hat-Trick, alongside a C.Ronaldo
- And finally, Wolves were two goals up at half-time for only the fourth time in the Premier League, and they have won all four of those games.
We just love creating history!
