Nuno Espirito Santo refused to be drawn into any speculation or dreams (at least publicly) of Wolverhampton Wanderers being top-four contenders following Friday’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, even in this chaotic and unpredictable 2020-21 Premier League season.

Allow us, Nuno, to speculate and make the case for you, then. Sure, you’re only seven games into the season and you still have to prove yourself against the sides that have dominated the top-six for the last decade, but won’t you live a little and humor us with words of what could be?
