Wolves and Fulham Share Stunning Goals in London Draw

25 February 2023, Saturday
Pablo Sarabia and Manor Solomon traded goals as Wolves and Fulham played out to a 1-1 stalemate at Craven Cottage on Friday evening. The match featured a few moments of creativity and quality, with Wolves taking the lead in the 23rd minute courtesy of Sarabia. Raul Jimenez had set up the goal with a sharp pass on the Cottagers' left. Antonee Robinson then gifted the equaliser to Solomon minutes after the hour mark, the USMNT star providing the ball on the same side which the Israeli duly tucked away.

The scoreline stayed level at Craven Cottage on Sunday, as Fulham and Wolves played out a draw in the Premier League. Neither team managed to get a full expected goal over 90 minutes, with the game evenly split in terms of possession and shots.

It would have been a great away win for Wolves had Solomon not equalized with a cultured right boot, however, the point still adds to their tally for the season. Fulham are now on 39 points, two behind Newcastle and three behind the top four, although they have played extra games than the teams around them. The team are currently unbeaten in six across all competitions.

For Wolves, this result is a welcome rebound from their shock home defeat against Bournemouth, giving them seven points from 12 and restoring their position of 15th place, four clear of the bottom three. Julen Lopetegui will be confident of leading the Wolves away from the relegation scrap with a few more wins.

Fulham had been enjoying a good run of form heading into their clash with Julen Lopetegui's Wolves, but they were not expecting an easy match. The Cottagers struggled to find their stride early on, while Lopetegui and the club's recent transfer activity added an extra layer of comfort at Molineux and the game seemed to come together nicely as a result.

Raul Jimenez was looking more and more like his usual self with Pablo Sarabia on his right flank, while Mario Lemina and Craig Dawson also put in solid performances. Jose Sa also pulled off an impressive late save to try and keep Fulham in the game. Wolves' confidence will have been bolstered by their display, and they should feel good about their chances of maintaining their Premier League status.

On Fulham's end, Marco Silva's back four of Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream, Issa Diop, and Kenny Tete all combined to bring a level of Premier League experience and energy to the team.

Manor Solomon is likely to have his sights set on being a regular starter at some point in his career, making it difficult for him to be a super sub. Ruben Neves, aged 25, has been a dominating presence in half of the Wolves' matches, making him the best midfield player on the field in that time.

Wolves head to Anfield on Wednesday to take on Liverpool at 3pm ET for a high-stakes match-up. The following day, Fulham are in FA Cup fifth round action, hosting Leeds in a crucial game. The action continues on Monday, March 6 when Fulham and Brentford battle it out in a West London derby in the Premier League.
