Following the 4-0 defeat to West Ham United a month ago, Nuno Espirito Santo demanded a response. “We played very, very badly,” said the Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach. “We made mistakes and there was no organisation. We must improve.”

Losing in such a manner to last season’s 16th-placed team was always likely to lead to calls for a more solid set-up, and that is exactly what Nuno got from his side: three games played, two wins and just one goal conceded. Even then, that single goal in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle was an 89th-minute free kick. There is not a huge amount you can do about those.

Next up are Crystal Palace, who have also alternated between solid (impressive wins against Southampton and Manchester United) and soft (a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea). The prize up for grabs tonight? The chance to draw level with Everton and Liverpool at the top of the table.

Pose your questions now and The Athletic’s Wolves reporter Tim Spiers will join in a couple of hours before kick-off, then discuss the performance, where the match was won and lost and pick through what the result means for the club.
