At Molineux on Saturday, Fulham takes on Wolverhampton Wanderers in an effort to build on their impressive draw with Liverpool the previous weekend.
Wolves, though, enter their first home game of the upcoming Premier League campaign hungry to avenge a dismal loss at Leeds United.

It was never going to be ideal for Wolves and Bruno Lage to play their first competitive match with a new system away against Leeds, so it is not entirely surprising that they lost at Elland Road.
However, the sadness comes from the fact that Wolves played brilliantly for the majority of the game in Yorkshire before giving up a fairly terrible goal that allowed their hosts to tie the score.
Lage must now make sure it doesn’t happen frequently, especially in the first month of the season when Wolves have a more favorable schedule than other teams.
Wolves are involved in a number of contests that they will hope to win, including the one against the champions of the previous season’s Championship on Saturday. The only other contest is next week’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
It is yet unclear how the departure of Conor Coady and the addition of Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes would affect this team. Wolves will only reach their goal if they are more ruthless at both ends of the field.
When it was reported that Fulham will play Liverpool to open their first season back in the top division, their fans would have worried about a lopsided loss.
The West London squad twice led the runners-up in the Premier League and the Champions League, so fans did not expect leaving Craven Cottage with a sense of what could have been.
The fact that Fulham’s head coach Marco Silva praised his team’s effort while Jurgen Klopp voiced displeasure with his own group shows that Fulham still managed to earn a point.
Given the positives from last week’s performance, Lage will believe that Guedes can only strengthen his team’s danger in the last third. However, Fulham will be motivated by their dominance of Liverpool, and we believe they can also claim a draw in the match.
