Wolves head to Bournemouth on Wednesday as they hope to earn their first Premier League win this season
Wolves put on a decent display against the Magpies on Sunday but weren’t able to hold onto their 1-0 lead as tricky winger Allan Saint-Maximin scored a 90th-minute equaliser.
The Wanderers are still awaiting their first win of the season having drawn two and lost two in their opening four matches, but if there was ever a time to earn one, a game against Bournemouth could well be it.
The Cherries were thrashed 9-0 by Liverpool last time out and they’ve reacted by sacking Scott Parker. This leaves them without a manager as they host Wolves.
Bournemouth head into the game with by far the worst goal difference in the Premier League with -14, and they’ve been goalless since their surprise opening weekend win over Aston Villa.
Wolves are unbeaten in all four of their previous meetings with Bournemouth having won three and drawn one. The last two matches between the sides ended 1-0 and 2-1 respectively.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Bournemouth vs Wolverhampton Wanderers, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch the Premier League clash live on TV.

What is the team news ahead of Bournemouth vs Wolves?
Wolves have no fresh injury concerns heading into this one, and so, apart from two players, Bruno Lage has a complete squad to select from.
Young Portuguese winger Chiquinho remains sidelined with anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligament injuries – he’s expected to be out until March 2023 after having surgery in July.
Central defender Willy Boly is unavailable due to an internal disciplinary manner. The Ivory Coast international didn’t turn up for the Wanderers’ game against Newcastle despite being selected. He’s been heavily linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.
Bournemouth meanwhile are without a whole host of players for the clash, as David Brooks (illness), Joseph Rothwell (thigh), Ryan Fredericks (calf) and Benjamin Pearson (knock) are all ruled out.
Winger Junior Stanislas (groin) and defender Lloyd Kelly (groin) both face late fitness tests.
