Comments:

League position: 14th This was Wolverhampton Wanderers' first league win since 2 April 2022 against Aston Villa; longer than any other current Premier League team. Wolves ended their run of 12 games without win in the Premier League (lost seven); their longest such run since February 2012 to August 2018 (17 games). They had now kept a clean sheet in 12 of their last 33 games in the Premier League. Raúl Jiménez was originally named on the subs bench before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. He was replaced by Chem Campbell.
