Wolverhampton Wanderers go into this match with 41 points secured
With two wins in a row under his belt, Nuno Espirito Santo takes his Wolves team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.
Wolves’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 2nd in a row. They currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of 41 points having won 11 games, drawn eight matches, and lost 13 games.
When Wolves host Burnley, they will do so on the back of six wins and four darts on their own ground.
Wolverhampton Wanderers will see 44 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Nuno Espirito Santo could be missing up to five of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.
Burnley arrive at this game with 33 points
Whilst Burnley need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for The Clarets after losing against Manchester United and Newcastle United would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.
Some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and three losses for Burnley seems very relevant. They currently sit in seventeenth place, with a total of 33 points having won eight games, drawn nine meetings, and lost 15 fixtures.
Burnley’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Wolves. In the 16 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four matches, drawn three fixtures, and lost nine meetings.
Burnley will have 36 points if they manage to secure a victory.
It is likely that three key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Sean Dyche and his Burnley team.
