Wolves will be looking to record back-to-back wins for only the second time this season, be securing three points against Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday night.

Nuno’s side were 2-1 victors over Chelsea in midweek, with Pedro Neto striking deep into injury time for the hosts.

It was a brilliant moment for the Portuguese youngster, who’ll be full of confidence heading into tomorrow night’s game with the Clarets.

Burnley have been an improved outfit in recent weeks, beating Arsenal and holding Aston Villa in midweek despite Dean Smith’s side peppering Nick Pope.

It’ll be important for Wolves to be clinical when the chances come, because Sean Dyche’s side can be very stubborn and hard to break down.

In goal, Rui Patricio will continue as normal, and it would be no surprise to see Nuno stick with a back five following the win over Chelsea.

 

It could be a backline of Nelson Semedo, Max Kilman, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Fernando Marcal.

At the time of writing, Willy Boly is an injury doubt and may well miss the clash, so Kilman, 23, could operate on the right, as he did against Southampton.

In midfield, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho – who is available again after serving his one-game ban – could be reunited, with Leander Dendoncker currently an injury doubt.

Up top, it would be no surprise to see Nuno leave Fabio Silva out of this one, with Burnley known for being a physical side.

The game just might not suit the youngster, so it could therefore be an interchanging frontline of Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and £18 million star Adama Traore (BBC Sport), who was benched against Chelsea.
