Paul Merson makes prediction for Wolves vs Burnley

Wolves face Burnley tomorrow night in the Premier League and Paul Merson has made his prediction ahead of the game.

After watching the team play out a disappointing 0-0 draw with Norwich City, the fans will be hoping for a much better performance against the Clarets.

It’s a big chance for Wolves to get three points Burnley – have had a tough start to 2021/22, picking up nine points so far.

Their only victory came against Brentford before the international break.

Burnley come into this game fairly well rested, having seen their game with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

Bruno Lage will be keen to get back to winning ways, and pundit Paul Merson believes that’s what will happen.

Predicting a 2-0 win for Wolves, he wrote for SportsKeeda: “Wolves were disappointing the other day against Norwich, but they didn’t lose.

“It’s been a theme with teams trying to get into the top six this season. Wolves were nearly there after the West Ham game but they couldn’t kick on against Norwich.

“We’re a third of the way into the Premier League season, and it’s not early doors anymore. Wolves have the quality to finish in the top six, and I think they’ll win this game.”

Wolves will have their work cut out against Burnley

Playing Burnley is always something Wolves find tricky

It is just one win in 10 meetings since 2012, and Sean Dyche’s side did the double over Wanderers last season.

Wolves have the quality, as Merson rightly points, out, but they do not yet have the consistency.

It’s been a somewhat erratic start, but at least Wolves are back at Molineux tomorrow night. The roar of the crowd could be paramount to a good performance.

Three points would be most welcome given the games that are coming up.
