Wolves will close out their home games in this season’s Premier League when already-relegated Norwich City visit Molineux on Sunday.

There was scepticism in Wolverhampton when Bruno Lage was appointed as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor, but the Portuguese has replaced his compatriot much to the satisfaction of the Wanderers faithful.

A tightened defence and a top 10 finish is a marked improvement on last season, and although European football is looking out of reach this term, Lage still deserves plaudits for the job he has done in his first term as a Premier League manager.

For visiting Norwich City, they began the campaign with the familiar figure of Daniel Farke at the helm as they looked to stave off an immediate return to the Championship.

Even after a change in leadership, the Canaries weren’t able to avoid the drop and latest boss Dean Smith will already be planning ahead for next term in the second tier.

Defeat at the hands of Leicester last time out was the latest blow in a miserable season for Norwich and they are on their travels again this weekend as they take on a Wolves side who were also handsomely beaten in their last affair.

Kevin De Bruyne ran riot at Molineux as Manchester City smashed 5 past Jose Sa, with the Belgian bagging four of them.

Lage will be looking for a response, so too will Smith, in a game which is effectively a dead rubber.

In terms of team news, Wolves remain without Kilman, Saiss and Semedo, whilst Podence is a major doubt to feature.

Norwich have more fitness concerns than their opponents, with as many as 7 players unavailable for selection on Sunday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Norwich is at 2pm on Sunday 15th May.
