Burnley vs Wolves prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?



The Independent employs reporters around the world to bring you truly independent journalism. To support us, please consider a contribution.

Following their draw against title-winners Liverpool last weekend, Burnley welcome Wolves to Turf Moor in the Premier League this evening.

Sean Dyche’s team fought back to split the points with Jurgen Klopp’s players thanks to a well-taken Jay Rodriguez finish, one day before Wolves dismissed Everton 3-0 at the Molineux Stadium.

While Nuno Espirito Santo and his side are well-positioned for a Europa League place with just three fixtures left this term, Burnley’s spot in the Premier League table (10th) doesn’t do full justice to the impressive efforts of Dyche and his team since the restart, bearing in mind the numerous injuries and contract uncertainty surrounding various Clarets players.


Here’s everything you need to know about this evening’s game.

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 6pm on Wednesday 15 July at Turf Moor.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on the BBC.

Coverage will begin on BBC 2 at 5.30pm before moving to BBC 1 for the second half.

What is the team news?

Burnley are still far from full strength, and Dyche is likely to name an unchanged side from that which held Liverpool.

Having limped off against Everton, Pedro Neto could miss out for Wolves tonight, with Joao Moutinho likely to fill in.

Predicted line-ups

Burnley: Pope; Bardsley, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor; Pieters, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood

Wolves: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny; Jota, Jimenez

What are the odds?

Burnley – 15/4

Draw – 23/10

Wolves – 17/20

Prediction

Wolves will be high on confidence following their comprehensive win over Everton, but Burnley will also be buoyed by their last result. The two sides could well cancel each other out. Burnley 1-1 Wolves.
