Wolves vs Burnley prediction: Wolves 2-0 Burnley
Burnley have made a woeful start to the campaign, which has been hampered, in part, by the nuisance of a drawn-out Europa League qualification campaign.
Wolves are looking for their first home win of the season after drawing both of their two matches at Molineux Stadium so far.
Wolves will hope to add to their lone clean sheet against a Burnley side who are struggling for goals.
Wolves vs Burnley: Who will win?
Wolves are 3/4 favourites to win the match while Burnley can be backed at 19/4. The draw is priced at 13/5.
I’m expecting this to be a relatively low-scoring game. Under 2.5 goals scored in the match is priced at 8/13.
Raul Jimenez is 9/2 to score the opening goal of the game and 8/5 to score anytime during the 90.
Wolves vs Burnley Premier League match preview
Wolves host Burnley at Molineux Stadium on Sunday, looking for their second victory of the Premier League season.
Prior to the international break, Wolves won away at West Ham thanks to a very late goal from Adama Traore. In their last home match, Wolves held champions Man City to a 1-1 draw.
As one of this season’s promoted sides, Wolves have looked very impressive in the early stages of the season and have perhaps been unlucky to only pick up the one win.
Burnley followed up their Europa League elimination with a 2-0 defeat at home to Man United before the break. The Clarets are 19th in the table on just one point.
In addition to their four Premier League matches, Burnley have already played six cup games this season – something that has almost certainly contributed to their poor form.
Wolves team news vs Burnley
Ivan Cavaleiro will miss out for Wolves and is Nuno’s only real injury concern following the international break.
Raul Jimenez missed Mexico’s defeat to the United States on Wednesday due to a “small muscular discomfort”, but the forward is expected to be available for Sunday.
Leo Bonatini provides a striking alternative to Jimenez.
Following three impressive substitute appearances, Adama Traore will be pushing for the first start for his new club.
No player in Europe’s top five leagues has averaged more dribbles per games than Traore’s four, which puts him level with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
So far, Nuno has kept the same starting line-up for four successive matches.

By contrast, Sean Dyche has a number of injury concerns for Sunday.
Ben Gibson and Stephen Ward will need to be assessed, while Robbie Brady is expected to miss out once again.
18-year-old Dwight McNeil started against Manchester United before the international break and will be hoping to keep his place in Dyche’s line-up.
Chris Wood is expected to start up front ahead of Ashley Wood. None of Burnley’s strikers have scored so far this season in the league. Worringly, defender James Tarkowski leads the way with two goals.
Nick Pope, Steven Defour and Johann Berg Gudmundsson all remain sidelined.
No goalkeeper has made more saves than Burnley’s Joe Hart this season. The former England number one has made 21 stops.
