Wolves v Burnley: Odds, predictions, team news & how to watch

Burnley head into Tuesday's clash with Wolves at Molineux with renewed belief following their emphatic victory over relegation rivals Sheffield United.

The Clarets had lost all seven of their home matches in the top-flight this season prior to the visit of the Blades, but they ran out 5-0 winners in that contest to move off the bottom of the table and to within two points of safety.

Next up for Vincent Kompany's side is a midweek trip to Molineux to face a Wolves outfit who have enjoyed some eye-catching results this season, but Saturday's defeat to Arsenal means they have now suffered three losses in their last four.

Double Chance - Draw or Burnley 19/20

Burnley had looked little more than relegation fodder following their return to the Premier League, but the Clarets underlined they are not just in the top-flight to make up the numbers following their five-star showing against the Blades.

That gives Kompany's side a platform to build upon and Burnley have picked up more points (four) on their travels this season than they have at Turf Moor (three).

Wolves will certainly be wary of the Clarets' new-found vigour and the hosts will head into Tuesday's game not in the best of form having lost three of their last four.

While Gary O'Neil's team have recorded some eye-catching results against the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham, they have also struggled against teams they would expect to beat, as highlighted by recent losses to Sheffield United and Fulham.

This is a match that Burnley will be hopeful of taking something from and they are 19/20 to either win or draw the game in the Double Chance market.

Over 3 goals - 2/1

On paper this may not look the most glamorous of Premier League fixtures, but it could prove to be entertaining, with Wolves having both scored and conceded in each of their last 12 games across league and cup.

Not since their opening match of the season have O'Neil's side failed to find the back of the net, and they have scored two or more goals in four of their six home games to date.

Burnley have scored in three successive league fixtures and they had five different scorers against Sheff Utd, underlining the attacking threat Kompany's team can possess.

The Clarets also concede goals at an alarming rate, as the 32 they have shipped this season is the second-most in the Premier League, behind only the side they thrashed on Saturday.

Over three goals on Tuesday night certainly could appeal at 2/1.

Mario Lemina to be booked - 21/10

Wolves have picked up more than their fair share of yellow cards this season, with four of their players, Craig Dawson, Joao Gomes, Nelson Semedo and Mario Lemina, having already served suspensions for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Lemina has also been sent-off for picking up two yellow cards in one match and the combative midfielder could be a primary candidate to be booked on Tuesday.

The Gabon international was carded on his most recent appearance against Fulham, missing Saturday's 2-1 loss at Arsenal as a result - and he is 21/10 to mark his expected return to the starting XI by picking up another yellow card.

Wolves Team News

Wolves are sweating over the fitness of goalkeeper Jose Sa, who was forced off during the first half of Saturday's loss at Arsenal, but O'Neil is hopeful his number one will be able to take his place between the sticks on Tuesday.

Lemina and Gomes are both available again following suspension, but the game is likely to come too soon for Pedro Neto, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury, as well as Joe Hodge, who is nursing a shoulder issue.

Burnley Team News

Kompany is unlikely to tinker too much with his starting XI following Saturday's big win, but goalkeeper Arijanet Muric could return to the matchday squad following illness.

Experienced midfielder Jack Cork remains sidelined with an unspecified issue.

Wolves v Burnley Stats

Wolves have scored and conceded in each of their last 12 matches across all competitions.
