After a historic season under Nuno Espirito Santo in the Premier League, Wolverhampton Wanderers currently find themselves winless in the top-flight after six games in 2019/20.

The Wanderers have so far failed to find the form that catapulted them into the realms of Europa League football in the season following their promotion from the Championship. Despite making it to the group stage of Europe’s secondary club competition, Nuno’s side are seriously struggling in domestic competition and are yet to get off the mark with an all-important victory.

After a season that saw Wolves gain giant-killing status with their terrific performances against the Premier League’s top-six, it would appear the feel-good factor has presently departed Molineux.

The club laboured to a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace this weekend and have conceded 11 goals in the Premier League so far; the fourth highest of all teams in the division.

Given we are at an early stage in the 2019/20 campaign, Nuno is unlikely to be in a state of panic at the current results, but there will be an understandable sense of urgency that the club’s current form must be remedied immediately; especially with the increased fixture congestion that the Europa League group stage will provide.

Despite not spending heavily in the summer window by top-flight standards, Wolves are unquestionably underachieving in the current campaign. The club set their own standards in the 2018/19 season and showed what they are capable of achieving, even against some of the Premier League’s elite sides.

Nuno will be desperate for a turnaround in their domestic fortunes at Molineux, with the curse of Europa League football seeming to have taken a grip over this Wolves squad alongside a potential case of second season syndrome in the West Midlands.
