Wolves dropped two more points in the Premier League last night as they played out a 0-0 draw with Burnley.

The team were looking to get back to winning ways after getting the same result against Norwich City last weekend.

Wolves had lots of the ball and created several chances at Molineux.

But they never truly tested the Clarets, and struggled to break them down to make big, clear-cut chances.

The closest Wolves came to scoring was when Adama Traore surged forwards on the counter in the first-half.

Instead of passing to Raul Jimenez, he went alone and crashed an effort off the crossbar.

Undoubtedly it was a frustrating night, and a win would have been ideal ahead of some tough games.

But there is one minor positive to take out of the disappointing draw.

Wolves have now strung together three clean sheets in a row. That is something the team didn’t manage once last season under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Wolves lacking bite, but at least they’re solid

Wolves continue to lack that killer instinct in front of goal.

It’s very frustrating to watch at times, but at least the defence is playing its part at the moment.

Romain Saiss, Conor Coady and Max Kilman were all really good again.

Three clean sheets in the Premier League is no easy feat and Lage does deserve some credit for that.

It’s actually quite surprising, given he came in with a reputation for being an attacking coach.

Ironically, Wolves are the joint-third best defensive team so far, but only Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur have scored fewer goals up to now.
