Match preview

Can Burnley leap out of the relegation zone?

On Thursday night, the Clarets claimed a potentially priceless victory, beating Southampton 2-0 at home.

Connor Roberts and Nathan Collins were the unlikely goal scorers, the first a beautiful curling effort, before a more characteristic header from a set-piece shortly after.

This means, since Mike Jackson has taken interim charge, his side have taken four points from two games, having drawn at West Ham last Sunday.

As a result, Burnley kick off just one point below an Everton team who faced title-chasing Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby later on Sunday.

With the Toffees almost certain to lose that game, it could be a decisive day for Burnley if they can take care of business in this earlier kick off.

Wolverhampton Wanderers though need a strong finish to the season if they're to sneak into the European places.

This’ll be their first game for 16 days when Wolves put in an incredibly flat display as they were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Before this, Bruno Lage's side had won three out of four, thereby raising hopes that Wolves could gatecrash the top seven places.

They do start the weekend eighth, three points below Manchester United with a game in hand, so all hope is not lost in that regard.

Who will claim three important points at Turf Moor?

Burnley team news

After an impressive victory on Thursday, Mike Jackson isn't likely to change much; admittedly he doesn't have that many options.

One alteration he's made is bringing Dwight McNeil back into the XI with Maxwel Cornet on the other flank and Jay Rodriguez up front.

The latter will partner Wout Weghorst in attack, with the Dutch international still searching for his first goal at Turf Moor.

Elsewhere, after Ashley Westwood's horrific injury last weekend, Josh Brownhill and Jack Cork will continue in central-midfield.

Connor Roberts could continue to get the nod over Matt Lowton at right-back.

Ben Mee, who's unofficially part of the interim coaching setup, is probably out for the rest of the season, so Nathan Collins will keep his place.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

After over two weeks without a fixture, Bruno Lage's men will be fresh if nothing else.

The headline team news is that Raúl Jiménez is available again after sitting out the last two matches suspended.

He'll displace Fábio Silva in attack with Francisco Trincão and Hee-chan Hwang the most likely inside-forward options.

Pedro Neto is the alternative, while Daniel Podence is injured.

Rúben Neves will rekindle his partnership with João Moutinho in midfield after missing out on the last two due to a Covid-19 infection.

Rayan Aït-Nouri could come in for the more conservative option of Marçal at left-wing-back.

Centre-back Willy Boly has only made four Premier League appearances all season, but they've all come from the last five games.

So, the Côte d’Ivoire could keep his place, chosen over Romain Saïss.
