LAST SEASON: ATTACK

Wolves really struggled for goals throughout 2021/22 and finished the campaign among the lowest scorers in the division.
In fact, only the three relegated clubs – Burnley, Watford and Norwich City – scored fewer than their 38, with their expected goals (xG) tally faring even worse when compared to other top-flight clubs.
Their lack of creativity in the final third was sometimes overlooked during the first half of the season, when they possessed one of the best defensive records in the division. However, the campaign came to a disappointing end, as Wolves won just three of their last 14 league games.
The fact they finished 10th with such a dismal goalscoring output is an achievement in itself, but manager Bruno Lage will be demanding more in 2022/23.
