Wolves travel to Norwich today for the first meeting between the sides since 2018. Norwich seem to have recovered from their slump after an exciting start to the season and have recently had some good results, so there is little doubt today's match will be a stern test for Wolves
Norwich have had the better of the last six meetings between the two teams, having won 4 to Wolves 2. Wolves will be hoping to quickly get over the last minute defeat by Spurs, whilst City will be hoping to continue the form which earned them a draw at Leicester last week. Nuno Espirito Santo has not announced any further injuries to his squad, and has confirmed that Adama Traore is recovering after dislocating his shoulder last week, so we may see an unchanged team starting again today after the performance they put in against Spurs.
Today's match may be seen by some fans as a 'banana skin' game which Wolves will do well to come away from with a win, considering the results they have experienced there in the past.
This board will hopefully offer some level of commentary, and members are encouraged to post their own observations for the benefit of those unable to follow the game.

City are looking sharp and well organised nd arhaving the greater share of possession so far. Alex Tettey takes a snap shot which Rui may have got a fingertip to, hits post and goes across goal to safety. We need to be very alert to their possibilities.
City have had 5 shots on target to one by Wolves in the first half. They are well organised & energetic and find space well. A poor pass by Saiss eventually puts Pukki in with a mother chance well collected by Rui.
Half time and Wolves likely to get a good bo11ocking from Nuno after that display. City have dominated possession and been far more skilful than expected from a team in their position. Poor defending led to their goal which was well taken, but Pukki could reasonably have been expected to score his two opportunities whereasWolves have offered very little threat at all. Joao has wasted most of our corners and is being far less influential than usual.
Raul tries a back heel to four about the fourth time today and it fails again so a promising break fails. Saiss brings down Arrons on the edge of our area but free kick is cleared. Saiss commits another foul & gets yellow card, which he probably deserved!
A good game to win now. City give the ball to Neves, to Raul to Adama and his shot is blocked for a corner. Raul robs rpthe ball as City try to play out from the back, but instead of playing Jota in his shot goes high over the bar. Yellow card for Joao for a foul.
Great play down the right & Adama puts it on Jonny's head but it doesn't then reach Jota. Saiss feeds Neves and he tries one from outside the area (naturally!) but just wide. 15 minutes to play & Neto about to replace Jota who hasn't had one of his better games.
Good defending busy Donk & Adama. Wolves break through Cutrone & delay throw in as much as possible. City break & Doc gets a yellow for a wild challenge. Wolves should have had a free kick for hand ball though. Into 7h added minute
6th in the table, very decent and 2 points from champions league!
Some very sad breaking news as I write. Just been announced that England great Martin Peters has died. Wasn’t he our youngest player in 1966? Played for West Ham, Spurs and Norwich and a player I very much admired.
