Wolves: Norwich City to be without several players at Molineux

Wolves host already-relegated Norwich City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, with the Canaries set to be without at least five first-team players going into their trip to the Black Country.

What’s the latest?

As per Norfolk Live, Andrew Omobamidele (back), Adam Idah (knee), Ozan Kabak (thigh), Kenny McLean and Josh Sargent (ankle) have all been ruled out for the rest of the seaosn.

However, the East Anglia outfit could also be without Mathias Normann and Christoph Zimmermann, who have both missed recent games, with the former set to receive results from a scan.

β€œIt is as it was for Leicester City on Wednesday,” said Norwich manager Dean Smith ahead of the match, with his side losing 3-0 to Leicester last time out.

Lage and Wolves will be delighted

With just one point from Wolves’ last five matches, Sunday could prove to be Bruno Lage’s side’s best chance of ending their winless run.

The Old Gold have been woeful of late, with Wednesday’s 5-1 thrashing at home to Manchester City, not long after a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Brighton at the end of April, emphasising how subpar they have been recently.

For a team which prides itself in its defending given how few goals they score, to concede ten goals in their last three matches is extremely worrying for Lage’s side.

However, against a team already relegated from the Premier League and without a handful of key players, Sunday’s match will be a golden opportunity to get back on track ahead of the final day of the season next weekend.

Although highly unlikely, Wolves do still have an outside chance of sneaking into a European position. West Ham in seventh have a five-point advantage over the Old Gold in eighth and would have to lose their remaining two league fixtures, with Wolves winning both of theirs, for Lage’s side to qualify for the Europa Conference League.

Will Wolves beat Norwich City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Therefore, it is imperative that the Molineux outfit end the season on a high in order to give themselves an outside chance of sneaking into a European place, and that starts with victory over Norwich.

With the Canaries suffering from a number of injuries, Lage will certainly be confident of his team’s chances of getting a first win since early April.
