Burnley vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Match preview

Could Burnley really go down?

After their 2-1 win over Spurs on 23 February they were sitting pretty and clear of danger.

That was the eighth match of an unbeaten run in which they amassed 18 points.

However, it has been miserable since then.

They have been beaten by Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Then, last time out, despite the fact Leicester played for 87 minutes with 10 men, they were beaten again.

The Clarets are now just one place and two points above the relegation zone.

Their last four fixtures of the season are Chelsea, Manchester City, Everton and Arsenal.

This emphasizes their desperate need for points.

Will their losing run end here?

Wolves for Europe?

Wolves meanwhile are absolutely flying.

Prior to the international break, goals from Raúl Jiménez and Diogo Jota saw them to a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final.

Those two have now scored each and every one of Wolves’ last 6 goals.

That result also meant that Wolves became only the third team to eliminate Manchester United and Liverpool from the FA Cup in the same season.

The other two are Everton in 2009 and Wolves themselves in 1949.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side will take on Watford in next weekend’s semi-final but he does not want his side to take their eyes off the ball in the league.

The Championship Champions are seventh in the table after a 1-1 draw at Chelsea in their last league outing.

The last time they finished that high in the top division was 1980 so will they get another win here as they chase European football?

This match is a battle of two of the sides who make the fewest changes to their starting XI.

In fact, they’re both in the top 3 for that particular statistic; Chelsea are also in the top 3.

Tom Heaton will continue in goal.

He’s one of just 7 Burnley players who was away on international duty although he did not play either of England’s matches.

Likewise, James Tarkowski was on the bench for both UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers.

He’s made more blocks than anybody else in the Premier League this season (44).

In midfield, Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson got a rare start against Leicester but Jeff Hendrick is likely to come back in.

Dwight McNeil he been a star on the other flank.

Aaron Lennon and Steven Defour are still long term absentees.

Up front, Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes will look to be a handful.

Those two have scored 46% of Burnley’s Premier League goals this season.

Can this team get points off Wolves?

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news vs Burnley

Nuno Espírito Santo has a settled XI too.

Nine of his squad members have played over 2,000 minutes in the league this season, a league high.

Cup keeper John Ruddy will drop out for regular number 1 Rui Patrício who won his 79th cap for Portugal on Monday.

It’ll be interesting to see who gets the gloves at Wembley next weekend.

In defence, due to his lack of international commitments, Ryan Bennett is likely to come back in for Romain Saïss.

In midfield will be Portugal’s new first choice duo Rúben Neves and João Moutinho.

Leander Dendoncker will be just behind them.

Despite scoring 6 goals and providing 8 assists, somewhat remarkably, Matt Doherty can’t get into an underwhelming Republic of Ireland side.

Nevertheless, he’ll continue to be a key player for his club.

As will Raúl Jiménez.

He scored in an international friendly against Chile last Saturday and will be looking for his 16th goal of the campaign here.

Surely this Wolves team will have too much for Burnley.
