Wolverhampton Wanderers will entertain Burnley at the Molineux Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they look to pick up maximum points at home. The West Midlands side managed to grind out a 1-0 win over Sheffield United last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this league game versus the Clarets.
Nuno Espirito Santo will probably opt for a 3-4-1-2 formation and is expected to name an unchanged team for this game. Adama Traore will continue to lead the line alongside Willian Jose who scored the match-winner versus the Blades earlier this month.
3-4-1-2 Wolves Predicted Lineup To Face Burnley
Rui Patricio will resume his duties in goal for Wolves after securing a clean sheet in his last league appearance. Romain Saïss, Conor Coady and Willy Boly will make up Nuno Espirito Santo’s defence. Their main focus would be to stop Burnley’s Matěj Vydra and Chris Wood from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Max Kilman and Ki-Jana Hoever will offer cover for the centre-back positions on the bench.
Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho will function as the holding midfielders as they look to dominate the opposition at the centre of the park and feed some decent balls to the front players. Rayan Aït-Nouri will operate as the left wing-back while Nelson Semedo looks to impress on the other side as the right wing-back. Both of them will be given the license to make some overlapping runs so that they can stretch the Burnley defence out on the wide areas.
Daniel Podence will get the nod to play in the number ten position as he tries to create some meaningful openings in the final third. Morgan Gibbs-White will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine as an impact substitute if required.
As mentioned earlier, Willian Jose will partner Adama Traore up top as the two attackers look to combine with each other and cause a lot of problems for the Clarets defenders this weekend. Fabio Silva will have to be content with a spot on the bench but could come on to make an impact in the latter stages if needed.
