Wolves vs Burnley: Predictions
It has been a mixed season for Wolves who have been unable to build upon their seventh-place finish in 2019/20, but there have been one or two green shoots of recovery since the turn of the year and Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are now looking to make it three wins on the bounce against a Burnley side in a bit of bother.
The Clarets have just hit a bit of patchy form over the past few weeks, losing three consecutive games, which has seen them drop to 17th in the table and now just six points above the drop zone, but with a game in hand. Sean Dyche will be cautious of getting seriously dragged into a relegation dogfight over the coming weeks.
The pragmatic tactician oversaw just one defeat in eight games between early-February and mid-March, including a 2-1 win over Everton, but the previous three matches have slightly undone that hard work and the Lancashire side are now just looking tentatively over their shoulders.
For Wolves their aim will be to push for a top-half finish; they are neither in threat of relegation, nor within a realistic chance of mounting a late European charge, but the West Midlands clubs are flying high in recent games and will want to keep that momentum going into the summer.
Wolves vs Burnley: Match Stats
Although a frustrating opponent on their day, Burnley have just exhibited a few concerning signs of ring-rustiness this season, underpinned by the fact they have dropped 13 points from winning positions in the league this season; when typically a Dyche side is almost conditioned the see games out.
Not only that, Sundays have proven Burnley’s Achilles’ heel this term; the Clarets have lost seven of their eight Premier League games on a Sunday this season. Incredibly, of all clubs to have played at least 40 Sunday games in the competition’s history, Burnley have the lowest win rate (17% – nine wins from 52 games).
One player who will be licking his lips at that worrying metric from a Burnley perspective is Adama Traore, who is currently enjoying a rich vein of form. The hulking speedster has scored (one) or assisted (two) a goal in each of his last three games, having initially endured a 35-game barren run before that.
