Making their Premier League return in eye-catching fashion earlier in the week, Wolves will turn their attention to EFL Cup duties when they welcome Stoke to Molineux on Thursday night.

Bagging two early goals at Bramall Lane on Monday evening and opening the New Year with a deserved three points on their travels, the Oranges certainly bounced back from their Europa League heartbreak out in Germany last month.

On the flip side, managing to extend on their Championship status after returning from the enforced break, Stoke have managed to enjoy what has been a very impressive resurge of late.

Ending last year’s interrupted campaign by collecting 10 points over their final four second-tier appearances, the Potters have a reputation for their low-scoring encounters this summer.

Playing out a pair of 0-0 stalemates in their opening two competitive matchups, you might be interested to know that under 2.5 goals on Thursday night can be found priced at 17/20 with Betfair.

Jimenez does it again

Not having to deal with European obligations this season, many feel that Wolves could be a potential dark horse in the race to land a Champions League debut this time around.

Opening the New Year in empathic fashion after bagging two goals in the opening six minutes away at Sheffield United on Monday evening, the Oranges would have also been hugely excited to see Raul Jimenez open his account with a clinical finish at Bramall Lane earlier in the week.

Cementing his spot as Nuno Espírito Santo’s leading marksman last season, the Mexican striker has continued to attract interest from across Europe and should lead the line once again on Thursday night.

In fact, Jimenez has scored 28 goals in all competitions since the start of last season – among Premier League players in this period, only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling have scored more.

You might be interested to know that the 29-year-old can be found priced at 11/10 with Betfair to once again find the net on EFL Cup duties in midweek.

An upset at Molineux?

Bringing in Michael O’Neill back in November in an attempt to steady the ship at the Bet365 Stadium, few would have expected the immediate impact that the former Northern Ireland boss would have had.

Comfortably helping Stoke extend on their Championship status after returning from football’s enforced break, the mood in the Potters’ camp appears to be at a high.

Managing to snatch a point off of play-off hopefuls Millwall in South London on their second-tier opener over the weekend, Stoke are unbeaten in each of their last five Championship appearances continuing on from last season.

Looking to cause a real upset in midweek, O’Neil’s men might travel to Molineux boosted by their most previous meeting against the Premier League outfit on the road. The last time they made the trip to Wolves back in 2011, Thursday’s guests landed a shock 2-1 victory.

You might be interested to know that a Stoke double chance can be found priced at 6/5 with William Hill for their trip to the Midlands this week.
