BUR Vs WOL Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Burnley find themselves back in the relegation zone as clubs around them accrue points.
Although they are currently unbeaten in their last three matches, Burnley will be the first to admit that they have a long road to traverse before they can claw their way out of the relegation zone. Sitting on the cusp of the bottom three prior to the ongoing gameweek, the club found itself thrust back into the unsavoury slots after Fulham managed to draw their contest.
In 18th place ahead of their showdown against Wolverhampton today, Burnley will once again thrust everything they have into defence. The club’s ability to revert to its customary resolute brand of defending across the last month has seen them wrench out of the winless impasse they found themselves in.
And with Wolverhampton known to struggle against such gritty and stubborn defensive dockets, Burnley have a real chance of extending their unbeaten run to four matches come today.
BUR Vs WOL Fantasy Probable Winner
Wolverhampton were impressive against Chelsea the last time around but we envisage them struggling to emulate that showing today. Burnley can be an extremely tricky side to score against and we envision the hosts doing enough to pull off a draw.

Earning three cleansheets in his last five matches, Nick Pope has been massively responsible for these shutdowns. He’s ended up as the club’s man of the match in all those affairs, a goal-keeper who is right up there with the best in the league.
Along with him, fullback Charlie Taylor has had a crucial hand in those performances as well.
Wolverhampton on the other hand will see us immerse in the services of an entire trio from the club. With Burnley scoring just once in their last three matches, Wolverhampton know that pulling off a cleansheet for their resolute defence won’t be the toughest of tasks.
It sees us indulge in the services of Nelson Semedo, Conor Coady and Roman Saiss.
We have been devoid of the Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho partnership this season. With Nuno deciding to shuffle between the two, the partnership which has so successfully controlled the midfield in unison has been absent this term.
However, today could see both of them being reinstated as a duo to see both of them make a pace in our side. Burnley will meanwhile see Ashely Westwood who has the one goal and one assist and Josh Brownhill line up for us.
Scorers of Wolverhampton’s two goals against Chelsea, Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto were responsible for the club’s 2-1 triumph on the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Neto’s four goals and two assists see him captain our side while Podence is the vice-captain.
Pope, Semedo, Saiss, Coady, Taylor, Neves, Ashley, Brownhill, Joao, Neto, Podence
