After two Premier League matches, Wolves have two points on the board.

On the opening day, they thought they were going to leave the King Power Stadium with a win when Leander Dendoncker poked home.

However, his goal was disallowed by VAR so they had to settle for a goalless draw with Leicester City.

Their first home league game of the season on Monday against Manchester United was far more eventful.

The Red Devils led until a Rúben Neves special from long range levelled things up ten minutes into the second half.

However, late on, Man United were awarded a penalty after a foul by Ryan Bennett.

Pogba stepped up but was denied by Rui Patrício who preserved a point for his side.

1-1 it finished.

Wolves have now come from behind to avoid defeat in three consecutive Premier League matches against Manchester United, the first team to do so.

Also, despite the fact they’re yet to win, their start will be considered a positive one due to their bust schedule.

This will be their eighth game of the season already due to their participation in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers.

They entered at the second qualifying round where they met Crusaders of Northern Ireland.

A 2-0 home win was followed by a 4-1 win in Belfast as they eased through.

The third qualifying round proved to be even more straight forward.

Back to back 4-0 wins saw them demolish Pyunik.

But then, in mid-week, the difficulty level leapt up.

As recently as Thursday night, Wolves were at Stadio Olimpico to face Torino in the first leg of their play-off round tie.

Goals from Saïss, Jota and Jiménez saw them to an eventful 3-2 win.

That leaves them in a strong position ahead of the second leg this forthcoming Thursday.

First though, league points are on the line so will they see off Burnley?

Burnley to spring a surprise?

As for Burnley, they’ve certainly shown positive signs so far.

On the opening day, a brace from Ashley Barnes followed by a goal from Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson saw them to a comfortable 3-0 win over Southampton.

That’s their biggest Premier League win since last December.

Last Saturday, they faced the far more difficult task of travelling to face Arsenal away.

The Gunners led early on but, on the stroke of half time, Barnes levelled it up with his third goal in three games against Arsenal.

However, the home side won it later on so Sean Dyche’s team left with a 2-1 defeat.

Nevertheless, he’ll be pleased his side have played well in both games and they’ll be confident of getting something out of this one.

Nuno Espírito Santo surprised everybody on Thursday night by making four changes to his usual XI in Turin.

With the second leg against Torino coming this Thursday, he’s expected to tinker a bit once more.

Monday night’s penalty saving hero Rui Patrício will continue in goal.

In defence, Jesús Vallejo started in Italy but Ryan Bennett is expected to be back in for this one.

Conor Coady is the only ever present this season.

In fact, the captain has played the full 90 minutes in each and every one of Wolves’ last 71 matches and there is no sign of that run coming to an end.

On the right, Matt Doherty missed the mid-week game through illness.

Adama Traoré deputised for him and was outstanding so, even if Doherty is back, Traoré will keep his place.

On the other side, Jonny will return with Rúben Vinagre dropping back out.

Their win on Thursday was made even more impressive as, the man who scored against Manchester United, Rúben Neves was left on the bench.

That strike was his tenth goal for Wolves from outside the box; his other three goals for the club have been penalties.

Neves will come back in with Leander Dendoncker given a rest.

João Moutinho could also be given a break with Morgan Gibbs-White, who scored his first goal for the club against Pyunik, starting.

Up front, Raúl Jiménez has scored five goals this season in three different countries; Northern Ireland, Armenia and now Italy.

He could have a new strike partner for this one; Patrick Cutrone could start, thereby giving Diogo Jota a rest.

This is a very strong Wolves squad and, even with the tinkering, this team has the capabilities to defeat Burnley.

As for Burnley, they’re expected to name the same XI for the third game running.

Nick Pope is very much the number one goalkeeper despite the presence of Joe Hart and the arrival of Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Left-back Erik Pieters is the only new signing to have established themselves in the side.

Ashley Westwood and Jack Cork are the midfield duo.

Out-wide, Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson is the only player to score this season apart from the in-form Ashley Barnes.

Only two players have scored more Premier League goals in 2019 then Barnes’ 12.

He’ll be looking to add to the three he already has this season so can he and Chris Wood fire the Clarets to a good result at Molineux?
