Wolves look to continue their impressive form with the incentive of breaking into the top six with a victory, as they host Burnley on Wednesday in the Premier League.

Bruno Lage’s side were held to a goalless draw at Norwich last time out, while Burnley’s last game ended in a 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace.


Though Wolves lost their first three Premier League games, Bruno Lage’s men now find themselves in sixth position and just three points from fourth-placed West Ham ahead of their fixture against Burnley.

Despite a goalless draw at Norwich where the away side controlled majority of the possession, neither team could break the deadlock, though Wolves may see it as an opportunity squandered with the tough fixtures coming their way.

Following their game against Burnley, they face Liverpool, Manchester City, Brighton, Arsenal and Manchester United in December which will surely prove if Lage’s side can truly maintain their league position.

After scoring just one goal in their last three Premier League games, Wolves now have the joint-fourth worst goal return which should cause some worry to Lage as they enter their tough festive run.


With the snow causing Burnley’s fixture with Tottenham to be postponed, their last outing produced a 3-3 thriller against Crystal Palace though Dyce’s side remain in 19th in the table.

There has been an upturn in Burnley’s form, losing just once in their last 7 – though drawing five of those game and winning just once in that time.

With two games in hand and games against Newcastle, West Ham and Watford to come, Sean Dyce will be looking to gain breathing space on his fellow relegation battlers.

Team news

James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood are suspended due to not being able to serve their ban in the postponed fixture against Spurs at the weekend.

Jack Cork and Nathan Collins will look to replace the absent pair for the fixture.

As for Wolves, Ruben Neves misses out due to being suspended while Daniel Podence misses out due to having coronavirus.

Bruno Lage may opt for Adama Traore in the place of Francisco Trincao to play alongside Raul Jimenez and Hwang hee-chan in order to keep his squad fresh for the busy period.

Wolves vs Burnley – kick off at 7:30pm (UK time) on Wednesday 1st December 2021.
