Burnley still searching for away success
Burnley have had a weekend off after their game against Tottenham fell foul of the weather on Sunday so the Clarets should be fresh for their trip to Molineux on Wednesday.
Wolves played out a 0-0 draw at Norwich and were arguably lucky to get anything out of that game after managing just two shots on target, and will be looking to put in a better performance in front of their own fans in this midweek round of games.
Wolves remain a threat at Molineux
Bruno Lage’s men may have drawn a blank at struggling Norwich on Saturday but at home their form remains strong. Wolves have won each of their last three at home, while Burnley are still seeking their first away win of the season.
The Clarets are definitely starting to look more like themselves and are unbeaten in their last three games but their away form will still be a concern for boss Sean Dyche, despite a smash and grab draw at Chelsea in their last trip. The Turf Moor club have seen less of the ball and created fewer chances than their opponents in all six of their away games so far and if Wednesday’s game follows a similar pattern they could well be in line for a loss on Wednesday.
Goals still an issue for Wolves
Wolves have failed to score in six of their Premier League games this season and have 12 goals in total in 13 games. At home, Wolves have five goals in six games – at an average of 0.83 per-game – but those five goals have all come in their last three so they should be expected to find a way through on Wednesday.
Burnley have conceded two or more goals in five of their six trips and exactly two in four, and with that in mind a 2-0 win for the hosts is my correct score selection.
Raul Jimenez is still working his way back to his best after recovering from a serious head injury. The Mexican has managed a modest three goals in 13 league games this season but has scored in each of his last two games at Molineux and as such has some appeal as an anytime goalscorer option.
Wolves predicted lineup: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri, Traore, Jimenez, Hwang
Burnley predicted lineup: Pope, Taylor, Mee, Collins, Lowton, Cornet, McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Guðmundsson, Wood
- Four of Wolves’ last five Premier League matches have ended with under 2.5 goals
