Wolves vs Burnley is an intriguing clash at Molineux on Wednesday (watch live at 2:30 p.m. ET on Peacock Premium) as the hosts will be the favorites but the Clarets have had their number in recent seasons.
STREAM LIVE WOLVES vs. BURNLEY
Bruno Lage’s Wolves have lost just one of their last eight games and sit 6th in the Premier League, three points behind the top four. They drew 0-0 at Norwich City last time around and they can be guilty of trying to find the perfect goal and overplaying in the final third. Defensively they are back to their best and Jose Sa is proving a superb replacement for Rui Patricio as he made some big saves last time against Norwich. The European wolf push is well and truly launched.
As for Burnley, well, at least they’re well rested as Sean Dyche’s side saw their home game against Tottenham called off due to heavy snowfall at Turf Moor on Sunday. Burnley needs to warm up in the Premier League this season as they have only won one of their first 12 games and are in the bottom three. They have, however, shot five of their last seven Premier League outings and are once again becoming tough to beat. With Maxwel Cornet, Dwight McNeil and Chris Wood on offense they create a lot of chances, but now it’s about getting wins on the board. Fast.
Anyone who thinks this will be an easy Wolves win, beware: Burnley is undefeated in his last five outings against Wolves, winning three times and on each of the last two occasions.

Wolves squad news, injuries, roster options
Wolves will be deprived of Ruben Neves who is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards, while Daniel Podence is missing after a positive COVID-19 test. Jonny Otto, Pedro Neto and Yerson Mosquera remain absent for the long term, while Willy Boly suffers from a muscle injury. Wolves have an extremely stable formation, but replacing Podence in formation is crucial as his creative spark was starting to make the most of Raul Jimenez and Hee-Chan Hwang.
Team Burnley news, injuries, roster options
Both James Tarkwoski and Ashley Westwood are suspended, which is a big blow to the Clarets. Ashley Barnes suffers a thigh injury and remains absent, while Dale Stephens recovers from a blow to the ankle. Sean Dyche will likely go with Maxwel Cornet to support Chris Wood once again.
