Wolves got back to winning ways last time around against Everton after losing two on the trot in the Premier League, and have a tricky fixture on Wednesday when they travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley.
The home side have an outside chance of qualifying for next season’s Europa League as they are currently five points behind Wolves, who are in the final European spot. A win for Burnley could close that gap to just two points ahead of the final two games of the season.
Wolves are currently just a point above an in-form Sheffield United team in the table, which makes it imperative for them to win their game against Burnley.
The last time these two sides met at Turf Moor, Burnley ran away 2-0 winners, and Nuno Espirito Santo will be plotting a bit of revenge this time.
Wolves Team News: Pedro Neto is the only Wolves player who will miss the game against Burnley due to injury.
Let’s take a look at the possible Wolves XI for the game against Burnley.
Predicted Wolves Lineup vs Burnley
Rui Patricio should keep his place in goal for Wolves on Wednesday night against Burnley. Although the Wolves defence are pretty physical themselves, Patricio will have to deal with Burnley’s crosses and long balls into the box.
The trusted defensive trio of Conor Coady, Wily Boly, Romain Saiss should start as the three centre-backs for Wolves against Burnley.
Jonny and Matt Doherty should start as the wing-backs in the Wolves lineup.
Wolves played with two midfielders last time around against Everton, and it will be interesting to see if manager Espirito Santo reverts to his three-man midfield formation.
If he does change to his three-man midfield, experienced midfielder Joao Moutinho will return to the Wolves lineup to play alongside Leander Dendoncker and Ruben Neves in midfield.
Moutinho could come into the team in place of the injured Pedro Neto.
Santo has a tough decision to make up front for Wolves. Wolves’ top-scorer Raul Jimenez, should start once again for Wolves, and will hope to add to his 16 goals in the league this season. Neto’s injury means that there is a spot in the attack that two players will compete for.
Diogo Jota and Adama Traore will compete for the spot next to Jimenez. Jota could get the nod after scoring last time around against Everton, when he was brought on in the second half.
