Few would've had Wolves down as a Champions League contender prior to the restart but a lightening fast start coupled with a sluggish return from Leicester City has put them well in the mix.

Prolific Mexican forward Raul Jimenez grabbed two goals in three games as Wolves collected nine points from nine as they continue to climb the standings.

Aside from those attacking exploits from Jimenez and co, Wolves defence has also been mightily impressive.

They are yet to concede a goal since returning from the extended break. Wolves captain and centre half Conor Coady has been a key man in that impenetrable back four. It's not always about who scores the goals, but who prevents them!

The final man in the running is a man who has resurrected his PL career of late, Southampton striker Danny Ings.

The Englishman was in limbo when he left Liverpool to join the Saints in the summer of 2018 but has been back at his prolific best this season, and has continued that since the restart. Three goals in three games for Southampton in the month of June. He's in with a shout!
