Burnley’s pursuit of avoiding relegation in the English top flight will continue on Tuesday night when they make the trip to a Wolves side that have had all sort of problems defensively this season.

Wolves' win over Manchester City on Match Day seven changed their fortunes after a poor start to the campaign that saw the Wanderers managed just one in their first six league games. Garré O'Neil's men went on a four-game winning streak after that, beating Newcastle and Aston Villa in the process and subsequently Tottenham Hotspur after a defeat to Sheffield Tottenham Hotspur. They have been unlike themselves in the last two games though, losing both with an aggregate of 5:3 but will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways against one of the new boys Burnley on Tuesday.

Burnley meanwhile have had very little to celebrate in the 2023-24 campaign. After achieving promotion from the Championship with the Clarets with 101 points, Vincent Kompany showed his intent to achieve even more with the team by extending his contract until 2028. However, the former Manchester City man's side have failed to perform as he would have liked, with Burnley sitting in the relegation zone with just two wins from fourteen games.

Wolverhampton vs Burnley Betting Tips: Both teams to score

As mentioned in the headline, Wolves' biggest weakness this season has been their defence. The Wanderers enter Tuesday's game with a run of 12 consecutive games without a clean sheet and conceded at least two goals in four of their last five games. However, O'Neil's side scored in all of those games, so a goal is to be expected from them on Tuesday.

Burnley have had issues winning games, even when they take the lead, but their goalscoring record is not bad. Kompany's side have scored in four of their last five league games, and both teams scored in three of those games. The visitors also have a good scoring record against Wolverhampton Wanderers, having failed to score in only one of the last eight meetings between the two teams.

Wolverhampton team news

José Sá won’t be available to Wolves boss Gary O'Neil on Tuesday due to injury. It’s a huge blow for the hosts as the goalkeeper has started all fourteen Premier League games so far this season.

Sa had to be taken off with just 23 minutes on the clock last time out after suffering an injury in the build-up to Arsenal’s second goal. The 30-year-old is joined by Pedro Neto on the Wanderers’ treatment list.

Mario Lemina and João Gomes are both expected to return to the starting eleven after serving their suspension for accumulation of bookings last time out.

Burnley team news

Meanwhile, Burnley didn’t suffer any injuries in the win over Sheffield United last time out so it won’t be a surprise if head coach Vincent Kompany maintains his starting eleven.

Thus Jay Rodriguez and Zeki Amdouni reunite upfront in a two-man front line after both got on the scoresheet last time out, while Luca Koleosho is also expected to keep his place in the middle of the park after scoring his first goal of the campaign in that game.

Lyle Foster has been struggling with depression and the centre-forward joins Nathan Redmond (injury) on the Clarets' absentee list.
