Some Wolves fans demand Vitinha gets rare start this weekend

Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Burnley at Molineux this Sunday, and revenge is on the cards for the home side.

Goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood gave Wolves too much to do, with Fabio Silva’s injury-time penalty proving nothing more than a consolation.

Some bad results and performances followed for Wolves, but the club currently sit 14 points clear of Fulham and need not worry about relegation.

Nuno Espirito Santo can afford to relax a little, and perhaps start looking at using players who haven’t see a great deal of game time.

Vitinha is one such individual – the young midfielder has not started now for Wolves in the Premier League since the 3-3 draw with Brighton back in January.

And just five of his 17 appearances for the first-team have been starts.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Molineux from FC Porto, and Wolves will soon be taking a decision on him whether the option to buy clause should be triggered.

But it’s tough for him, with Nuno definitely loyal to the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker.

On social media, fans have let it be known they wish to see him start against Burnley:
