Follow live coverage as Wolverhampton Wanderers face Norwich City in the Premier League today.

Manchester City are reigning champions after a dominant 2020/21 season and Pep Guardiola's side are favourites to win it again boasting as they do one of the best squads in Europe.

European champions Chelsea have proven they have what it takes to dethrone City, however, having done it in last season's Champions League final and will be hoping to add a domestic title to the one won in Porto.

Liverpool were winners back in 2020 ending a 30-year wait for league glory and Jurgen Klopp is sure to have them back challenging again at the sharp end this season too while Manchester United will be looking to be back in the title picture with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to his former club in the summer.

It's not all about the action at the top though with Norwich, Watford and Brentford promoted to the top tier for 2020/21 and hoping to hold their own against the best English football has to offer and avoid the drop.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

Wolves have now failed to score a first-half goal in 25 of their 37 league games this season. Only Burnley and Norwich have been slower starters, and it could come to cost the hosts again. They've lost every game in which they've trailed at half-time. Norwich will be confident they can secure a morale-boosting win from here.

It's highly unusual, but Norwich are heading in at half-time with the lead. Away from home too! The Canaries have managed Wolves' threat well, and their goalscorer Pukki has troubled the hosts numerous times. Wolves have been lacklustre going forward.

Thankfully for Wolves, their final home game this season is against already relegated Norwich. The Canaries have conceded a league-high 78 league goals this season and have a woeful goal difference of -56, currently the third worst in Premier League history. At this point for them, any small improvement would be welcome.

Wolves' chances of playing in Europe next season were all but ended by their 5-1 thrashing by Manchester City last time out, making it nine home games that Bruno Lage's men have lost this season. Their inconsistency at Molineux may have cost them this campaign, but at least they can still take pride from a likely top-half finish..
