Wolves vs West Brom LIVE: Result and reaction from Premier League fixture today

Wolves host West Brom in the Black Country derby to kick off another weekend of Premier League action.

Nuno’s side are winless in five games in the league and will hope to move away from the bottom third of the table after falling to within 10 points of 18th placed Fulham, with Everton inflicting defeat on Wolves last time out. While the Baggies have also failed to win in seven games, with a heavy defeat to Arsenal last time out, and sit six points off Brighton in the bid to beat the drop under Sam Allardyce.

But despite the Baggies’ poor run, Nuno is not tempted to underestimate his opponents today: “There are no easy games in the Premier League, tomorrow it will be a big mistake to think that just because of the situation of West Brom. We are playing well, we are having good moments but are making mistakes which are being penalised. We have performed well and played good games but we've made big mistakes, especially in defence.

“Our priority has to be simple, be compact and solid. It always starts with a clean sheet. We have to go back to our main foundations, a clean sheet. The loss of Raul had a big impact on us, that's no doubt. He is a special player who has been with us for many years. If we are not the same we have to find different solutions with different players.”
