    Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Norwich City

    Wolves have failed to win any of their last five league clashes against Norwich, losing twice (D3).

    Norwich have scored two or more goals in each of their last four league matches against Wolves, scoring 12 in the process.

    The Canaries have gone 11 matches without a win on the opening day of the season, losing five and drawing six.

    Wolves recorded their highest ever points total (103) last term, becoming just the fourth side to reach 100+ points in the third tier (Fulham 1999, Wigan 2003 and Charlton 2012). Indeed, 103 points is the most registered in the third tier in a single season.

    In 2013/14, Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored with his first shot on target of the season (on the opening day) but only managed eight more shots on target all season (and no more goals).

    Wolves scored a league-high 48 goals in the second half last term.

    Norwich City (32%) scored the highest proportion of goals from outside the box in the Premier League last season.

    No player scored more league goals for Norwich last season than Gary Hooper (6).

    The Canaries picked up a Premier League-low nine points away from home in 2013/14, winning just two games in the process.

    There has been six red cards in the last seven meetings between Wolves and Norwich, three apiece.
