Already convincing during the 2018/2019 financial year for its rise to the Premier League, Wolverhampton confirmed last year by finishing in a very honorable 7th place in the standings. This formation, with its Portuguese sounding workforce (Ruben Nueves, Moutinho, Diogo Jota etc) could be the little sensation of this season. As a reminder, if Wolverhampton finished in 7th place, Wolves were neck and neck with Manchester United to fight for places in the Champions League. At a time when Wolverhampton has just started this new season, this victory against a team from Sheffield united and compact defensively (2-0) will free the residents of the Molineux Stadium.

After his descent from the Premier League to the Championship last season in the 2018 season, Stoke City was scared with this 16th place in 2019, just like last season. Indeed, Stoke City has acquired its maintenance thanks to 10 points collected during the last 4 days. In great danger for 2 seasons, the Potters will have the mission to finish in the first part of the table to a lesser extent for this new year. After his victory on penalties (5-4) against Blackpool, Stoke conceded the points division on the lawn of Milwall. An interesting operation which allows the former team of Peter Crouch to occupy 12th place in the standings.

Wolverhampton must deal with the departure for Tottenham from the very offensive side Matt Doherty. In the opposite direction, the club bought its Brazilian defender Marçal from Lyon and made a big financial effort (40 million euros) to enlist the very young Portuguese striker Fabio Silva (Porto, 18), while another youngster, Vitinha, was loaned by the Portuguese club. They join an important Portuguese colony made up of goalkeeper Rui Patricio, midfielders Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho and winger Diogo Jota, who are all potential holders, but also coach Nuno Espirito Santo. Mexican striker Raul Jimenez (17 goals and 6 assists) is coming off a very good season and he will have to create automatisms with rookie Fabio Silva. For the reception of Stoke, Wolverhampton is deprived of its starting side Jonny Castro who will be absent for a while while Adama Traore will be available.

Opposite, Stoke is a team that has stagnated in the Championship but has one of the largest squad in this division. The excellent goalkeeper of this team and talented Jack Butland serves as leader, as do Irish international winger James McClean and former Marseillais Steven Fletcher. Regarding the absent players, the important captain Ryan Shawcross, the Welsh international Allen as well as the little used Thibault Verlindin will be absent for this big meeting.
