In that regards, this upcoming fixture could be termed as one of the most important games of their season.
Elsewhere, Norwich were beaten at home by impending champions Liverpool, with a scoreline of 0-1. While the hosts did try their best to hang on till the very end, the ferocious mentality of the Reds proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Wolves vs Norwich Prediction
Wolves have been one of the top-performing teams this season, and at present, they are desperate for a win. They also do have the home advantage to count on to bolster their performance.
Moreover, they are hosting the dead-last placed Norwich this Sunday, who are a main contender to get relegated at the end of the season. In addition, Norwich are also a new addition to this competition, and lack in experience at the top flight.

They have so far scored a total of six goals on the road, and are the only team to yet to touch the ten-goal mark away from home. They have, in fact lost nine of their thirteen games on the road, and have a single such victory to show for all their efforts.
Going on, Wolves had won the reverse fixture, that too on the road, and they have lost just once at this venue in the past two decades. Keep note that they had also recorded 10 of the prior 15 h2h wins.
