Wolverhampton has remained 8th in the standings. The Wolves have lost in the last three games. The opponents were teams from London: Arsenal (1-2), West Ham (0-1), and Crystal Palace (0-2). The loss to the former was offensive in the final minutes, the second was expected, and the third was unexpected, especially by a difference of two goals. Now it's time for Bruno Lage to pull his team out of this slump.
Under Roy Hodgson, Watford have only one win under their belt. It was over Aston Villa (1-0). Three more games passed since then, but no triumph was scored. First, the Hornets lost to Crystal Palace (1-4). Then, they bounced back from a defeat at Old Trafford (0-0). And last weekend, they lost at home to Arsenal (2-3). Thus, Watford sit in 19th place. The gap from the relegation zone is three points.
