Premier League Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Burnley

Wolverhampton Wanders host Burnley on Sunday eager to continue their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season.

Draws against Leicester City and Manchester United represent a solid opening to the campaign for Nuno’s side and they will be keen to build on that against the Clarets.

A much-improved second-half performance from Wolves helped them secure a point against United on Monday.

Anthony Martial’s excellent first-half strike put the Red Devils ahead, but Ruben Neves’ stunning strike pulled Wolves level after the break.

United had a chance to win the game, but Rui Patricio produced a superb save from Paul Pogba’s penalty to deny them.

Wolves will fancy their chances of picking up three points this weekend having lost just seven of their last 20 meetings with Burnley in all competitions.

Sean Dyche’s side started the season with a 3-0 victory over Southampton, but lost 2-1 at Arsenal in their second outing.

The defeat against the Gunners continued Burnley’s struggles on the road and they are likely to find things tough at Molineux.

The Clarets won just four times away from home last season and were beaten 1-0 by Wolves in the corresponding fixture back in September 2018.

The Midlands club went on to end the campaign with 10 wins and four draws at home to highlight how difficult they are to beat on their own patch.

They haven’t failed to score at home since a 0-0 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion during April and have enough quality in their team to trouble Burnley’s backline.

The North West outfit have failed to keep a clean sheet away from home since recording a goalless draw at Watford back in January.

Wolves’ trip to Torino in the Europa League on Thursday is a slight worry from a fitness perspective, but their squad looks strong enough to cope.

The home side have emerged as one of the better teams in the Premier League and are fancied to pick up a 2-0 victory over Burnley.
