THE TEAM NEWS

WOLVES

  • Two draws for Wolves to open their campaign but they will target a win here to prove that the Europa League is not causing a distraction.
  • This match will be Wolves' third match in six days after Monday night against Man Utd and Thursday's trip to Italy to face Torino.
  • Nuno Espirito Santo is using the Europa League to rotate but he will field all his regular starters as they return to league action.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Rui Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Dendoncker, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Jonny Castro; Jimenez, Diogo Jota

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Doherty (Injured)

BURNLEY

  • After their opening win over Southampton, Burnley lost to Arsenal last week but there were plenty of positives despite the 2-1 loss.
  • Ashley Barnes' fine start to the season continued as he scored his third goal in the opening two games and is leading the line well.
  • Boss Sean Dyche will likely retain the same eleven players for this match as they performed well at Arsenal though Rodriguez could come in.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Unavailable: Defour (Injured)

Doubtful: Brady (Injured), Drinkwater (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Wolves are trying to show that unlike their opponents Burnley last season, they can cope with the demands of the Europa League. Espirito Santo's men have had two difficult fixtures so far and are playing well, and they will fancy their chances of getting their first win in the league here.
