Tip Reasoning

  • Half of the goals scored at Molineux this term have come in the last five games
  • Wolves have scored 10 of their 18 home league goals in those five matches
  • Brighton have scored in 13 of their last 16 away games in all competitions
  • 11 of those 13 saw both teams find the net

Wolves put European hopes on the line

Wolves are three points off the top seven with a game in hand, so their hopes of a return to European football should be high. However, they need a strong finish to leap into a European place, with the Europa League seemingly beyond them.

However, Saturday pits them against a Brighton side who have frustrated most of the Premier League this term. With just 11 defeats in 34 games Graham Potter’s team have had an impressive top-flight campaign, while they head into this clash with just one defeat in their last four.

Another Wolves thriller?

Wolves Brighton isn’t the game to set pulses racing, while the home faithful haven’t had much in terms of goalmouth action this term. In fact, with 18 goals scored and 16 conceded at Molineux this season, no home fans have seen fewer Premier League goals than Wolves (34).

However, things have certainly turned around of late. Half of those goals have come in the last five games at the stadium (17/34). Only Watford failed to score at Wolves during that run, while the hosts scored more goals (10) than they managed in the 11 previous games (eight).

On top of that, Wolves head into this clash without a clean sheet in each of their last four matches. Given that Brighton have averaged over a goal per game on the road this term, more goals should be on the way here.

Score draw at Molineux

Brighton have scored in 13 of their last 16 away games in all competitions, with 11 of those seeing both teams find the net. Given how Wolves have found their scoring touch at home, I’m going with both teams to score as my selection in this clash.

Wolves are on the longest current run of Premier League games without a draw, with none of their 15 games in 2022 so far ending level. That’s a run which feels out of the ordinary for a Wolves side who are typically solid. However, the visit of the league’s draw specialists could end that run.

The Seagulls have drawn 14 games this season, with seven of their 17 away games ending up level. On top of that, Brighton have drawn seven of their last 11 trips to Molineux. With both sides quite dependable, I expect a decent display from both so a 1-1 draw is my correct score prediction.
