Wolves took a fabulous point away from Stamford Bridge today as they held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw.
But for a moment of magic from Eden Hazard too, Wolves would have been heading back up to the Midlands with all three points, but it was once again a fine display on the whole from Nuno Santo’s men.
Wolves have been something of a breath of fresh air to the top flight this term, and we here in the Tavern feel that with a few tweaks here and there, they could well be challenging for the top four in the coming couple of seasons.
Santo is doing a superb job, and it got us thinking a bit more in depth about if Wolves can indeed challenge for those top four spots.
With that, we looked at TWO reasons why Wolves can challenge for the Champions League places from as soon as next seaso…
They’re a well drilled unit
One thing Santo has got his team doing is playing to a system which suits and all the players are recognisable with.
This means they can grind out points just like they did today by sticking to a game plan.
With a bit of added quality to the ranks, this is a solid foundation to build on going forward and could prove very fruitful for Wolves in the long run.
They’ll spend if they need too
Backed by mega rich owners, Wolves won’t be afraid to splash the cash if they feel Santo can get them into the Champions League spots.
They’ve already shown that they are willing to go into the European market and make big money plays, and they might well just do so again.
A top striker, and another midfielder wouldn’t go amiss, but they certainly have the financial muscle to compete if needed.
