6 of Wolverhampton Wanderers' Craziest Premier League Games

Wolves are returning to the Premier League after a seven year absence after a dominant campaign in the 2017/18 Championship season. 


Here are six of their craziest Premier League games to give you a taster of what's to come.

6. Liverpool 0-1 Wolves, 29th December 2010

A historic win in every sense of the word, Wolves claimed their first victory at Anfield for 27 years courtesy of a Stephen Ward toe poked finish. Roy Hodgson's tenure at Liverpool was less than impressive, and nothing quite summed it up better than an abject home performance and eventual loss to a relegation threatened side. Wolves never looked like conceding, and had a shot cleared off the line late on.

5. Wolves 3-1 West Bromwich Albion, 8th May 2011

It's always good to get one over on your rivals. There's certainly no love lost between Wolves and West Brom, and having been on the receiving end of a few hammerings from their neighbours, Wolves got some revenge with a convincing victory. The win would give Wolves the momentum they needed to secure their Premier League status on the final day of the season.

4. Wolves 2-3 Blackburn Rovers, 22nd May 2011

An afternoon of high tension in which Wolves found themselves in the relegation zone multiple times, it took an 87th minute Stephen Hunt effort to preserve Wolves' Premier League status. Having gone 0-3 down by half time, Wolves fans had almost accepted their fate, but a second half comeback - coupled with Birmingham losing away at Tottenham - meant that Wolves would stay up, and Birmingham would go down.

3. Swansea City 4-4 Wolves, 28th April 2012

One of the most ridiculous Premier League games of all time, especially given that it was completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Already relegated Wolves versus already safe Swansea saw the South Wales outfit go 3-0 up after 15 mins. After half an hour it was 4-1, and Wolves were staring at a potentially embarrassing scoreline. 


A comeback was sparked in the 33rd minute however, with Matt Jarvis getting on the score sheet. Dave Edwards would make it 4-3 before Jarvis struck again to gain Wolves an irrelevant, but entertaining point.

2. Wolves 1-0 Manchester United, 17th January 2004

This game had the perfect concoction of factors for a Premier League classic.


1st v 20th? Check.

Champions vs. Newly promoted? Check.

Both teams in desperate need of points? Check.


Man United's star studded side couldn't find a way past what was a woeful Wolves defence, and in the 67th minute Kenny Miller capitalised on a Wes Brown slip to slot home and give Wolves a famous victory.

1. Wolves 4-3 Leicester City, 25th October 2003

3-0 down at half time, Wolves were staring at yet another Premier League loss. Two goals from Colin Cameron, one from Alex Rae and an 86th minute winner from Henri Camara saw Wolves complete one of the greatest Premier League comebacks of all time. It would ultimately be in vain as Wolves would be relegated the same season, but it gave the Molineux faithful another special memory of the 2003/04 season.
