But how much do you know about our Premier League rivals?

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Three facts about Wolves:

  • Wolves are founding members of the Football League and also played a significant role in the formation of the European Cup
  • They have won the First Division three times, the FA Cup four and finished runners-up in the 1972 UEFA Cup
  • They recently set two unwanted records - losing six home matches in succession for the first time and going 29 league matches without a clean sheet

The winger has once again proven himself as one of Wolves' most consistent performers and is certainly one to watch from the wide positions. Jarvis has scored two goals in his last three matches in an excellent run of form - the kind which earned him an England cap under Fabio Capello last year. On the other wing, Michael Kightly must also be watched closely.
