Since Wolves were promoted back to the Premier League in 2018-19, they’ve always had at least eight or nine regular players, and played just 21 players in total. This season has seen a departure from that, with just four regulars and far more rotation players compared to 2018-19.

This is also a pretty young team, though, if you take Rui Patricio out of the equation. The Portuguese has played every minute of the season so far, so skews things slightly at the age of 32. Taking him out, the average weighted age of the team goes from 26 years and 83 days to 25 years and 238 days, the equivalent of going from ninth-youngest to fourth.

**Killer stat:** Wolves are starting to settle on a squad for the mid to long-term, with an average tenure of 1.9 years per player. It’s been quite chop-and-change in recent seasons, and hasn’t been higher since 2011-12, when Wolves were last in (and relegated from) the Premier League.
