Betting prediction: Wolves 1-0 Burnley

Burnley has hit an untimely skid in the Premier League and will count themselves lucky that Fulham has seemingly hit the exact same wall simultaneously.

A visit to Wolves presents a possible avenue to put the key back in the ignition, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side is on the back of two wins on the spin and can close the gap to the top half of the table to just two points if they win on their home patch.

It should be a close-run thing in the end, but I’m going with Wolves to squeak it out. Burnley does have a decent chance to do the same.

Wolves vs Burnley: Recommended bets

To Win To Nil: Wolves

Burnley could perhaps feel a little hard done by the scoreline in their 3-1 loss to Manchesterr United, and much like the five matches before that with varying results (1-2-2), Burnley tends to keep within an arms reach of their opposition. Wolves are similar but are blessed with a higher level of individual quality through the likes of Adama Traoré or Daniel Podence that can sometimes push them over the line.

To Score First: Willian José

Willian José finally opened his account for Wolves since the winter window loan deal that brought him to England from Real Sociedad, where he found goals a common commodity. Despite the lack of goals, his performance levels have improved as he has settled to life in the Premier League, and the threat he does impose is a considerable one given his physical prowess in the air combined with some decent instincts off the ball to get into key positions. With the technical quality of Traoré and Podence to find space to operate, José could benefit on Sunday.

Wolves vs Burnley: Match preview

Stability is everything in football, especially in the shark-infested waters of the Premier League where one misstep jumping from one raft to the next could lead to disaster. In the case of Wolves, though their season has not gone according to the script that was written in the two prior years since being promoted back into the English top-flight, the club has continued to been run from a point of stability. With manager Nuno Espirito Santo insisting that his future remains with Wolves is a sign of continued calm waters at the Molineux.

With his partnership alongside Jorge Mendes set to continue at the club, Wolves must target their immediate return to the top half of the table and hopeful reinstatement into the European places as soon as possible. The emergence this season of West Ham United and an improved Everton show that it is not only the top six that Santo has to contend with now. Leeds United and Aston Villa are expected to keep their push as well, while Arsenal will hope to be back in the thick of it as well. It is only going to get more difficult for Wolves now, but key staff remaining goes a long way to helping the club with hitting the ground running during the summer window and keeping their building program on track.

Part of getting back on track for Wolves starts now, however, and when they clash with Burnley at the Molineux it will be against a side they have struggled with in recent fixtures, but must look to these fixtures with the view that they are the heavy favorites. Three points would put them just two adrift from both Arsenal and Leeds who sit joint-10th after their loss to Everton on Friday evening, while also drawing them level with Villa. Nine points from nine in Wolves’ next three fixtures will be vital as well, with the closing part of their program featuring ties against Tottenham, Everton, and Manchester United. Win the ones you should be winning, and life will be just that little bit easier.

Big summer plans for Burnley require Premier League status

Sean Dyche and Burnley will have to be careful of running completely off the rails if Burnley is to avoid a late-season relegation scrap. The Clarets currently sit just outside the bottom three, six points clear of Fulham and with a match in hand. But three losses in their last three, and just one three-point haul in their last six fixtures, is hardly a platform for putting distance between themselves and the drop zone. And Burnley’s persistent inability to perform consistently in front of goal still has them sitting in the bottom three in the Premier League goal chart.

It has been a seasoned defined by what has been missing, rather than what was on offer at Turf Moor. Poor summer investment and a paper-thin squad left Dyche scrapping the bottom of the barrel regarding the best possible way to squeeze the maximum out of a squad that lacks creativity, lacks goals, and at times lacked its most prized possession; its best and brightest at the back. But perhaps new owners ALK Capital can help with that, and if some of the dialogue coming out of their camp is to be believed, they intend on doing just that.

Unlike other new ownership that has flooded into the league in recent years, ALK seems to be championing the notion that everything must be built a step at a time, and that includes the manner in which transfer spending via their funding is to take place. Helping Sean Dyche improve numbers in the first-team squad would be of the utmost importance, considering the Clarets’ struggle with injuries and regularly being well short of bodies during certain periods of the season. Once the squad is big enough to withstand the long and arduous Premier League calendar, incrementally improving the quality of the team comes next. As set down by ALK chairman Alan Pace, long-term goals require long-term planning based-off times decisions rather than one large action. But if Burnley does not remain in the Premier League, those plans may look very different. With Fulham and Sheffield United to come before the season ends, Burnley is in the driver’s seat to ensure plans become reality.

Wolves team news vs Burnley

There is a considerable chance that Nuno Espirito Santo will name an unchanged XI when Wolves welcome Burnley to the Molineux on Sunday.

Raúl Jiménez, Pedro Neto, and Jonny are all unavailable through injury, while Rúben Neves has tested positive for Covid-19 and will be subjected to Premier League protocols.

Marçal is also a doubt for selection, so there should be little-to-no change in the Wolves teamsheet.

Burnley team news vs Wolves

Sean Dyche will have similar selection issues seen against Manchester United when Burnley travels to Wolves.

Nick Pope is expected to return after training all week, which is a big boon at the right time for the Clarets, and Dwight McNeil came through unscathed after his return against United.

Robbie Brady, Kevin Long, and Ashley Barnes all remain unfit for duty, so much like Wolves, Burnley is expected to revert to their preferred deployment.
