Wolves Premier League 2018/19 fixture list revealed: Nuno's team start against Everton

By Tim Spiers | Wolverhampton | Wolves | Published: | Last Updated:

Wolves will kick off their Premier League campaign against Everton at Molineux.

Wolves are back in the Premier League after six years away

They then face two of the past three Premier League champions – Leicester away and Manchester City at home – in their opening fixtures of the campaign.

Five of their first six games are against teams who finished in the top half last season, with Burnley (h) and Manchester United (a) following a first ever trip to the Olympic Stadium to play West Ham on September 1, Wolves' fourth fixture of the season.

Nuno Espirito Santo's team face fellow promoted side Fulham away on Boxing Day and are in London again three days later when they take on Tottenham at their new White Hart Lane stadium.

And a third game against London opposition in a row sees Wolves host Crystal Palace on New Year's Day.

The toughest run of the campaign arguably comes in March when Wolves face Chelsea (a), Arsenal (h), Burnley (a) and Manchester United (h) in successive games.

The final home fixture is against Fulham on May 4 and the season will end against Champions League runners-up Liverpool at Anfield on May 12.


Other big home matches come in the first half of the season with Spurs at Molineux on November 3, Chelsea on December 4 and Liverpool on December 22, the last match before Christmas.

Wolves are back in the top flight after six years away but their odds of 300/1 to win the league reflect the club's lofty ambitions.

The opening-day Everton game will see Nuno face Portuguese compatriot Marco Silva who recently replaced Sam Allardyce as Toffees boss.

And the first away trip to Leicester is Wolves' 'local derby' of the season in the absence of rivals West Brom, Villa and Blues.

This is the first time Wolves have been the sole West Midlands representative in the top flight in English football history.

By far their busiest month of the campaign will be December when there are seven matches. No other month has more than four league fixtures.
