Last season, Wolverhampton Wanderers were playing in the Championship. Admittedly, they were very successful in the English second tier, although Burnley were busy finishing seventh while this was happening.
The Clarets might have been punching above their weight although that placing them earned them a Europa League adventure which came to an end recently against AEK Athens and also got in the way of the start to domestic football.
Sean Dyche’s men started the season with a goalless draw against Southampton although this was followed by reverses against Watford, Fulham and Manchester United.
The nature of those defeats were very un-Burnley-like, especially conceding three goals at home to the Hornets and four against a Cottagers side who had previously managed one in two matches.
Dyche will be determined to make things tighter at the back, with Joe Hart actually in impressive form and saving a penalty against Manchester United, while James Tarkowski is deemed to be good enough to feature for England.
Wolves have made a decent start to life in the top flight, with Wanderers opening with a 2-2 draw against Everton. After losing to Leicester, they have since drawn with Manchester City and won at West Ham.
Even so, they are yet to break their duck at Molineux and odds-on seems too short about a side still adjusting to life in the top flight.
Adama Traore was the match winner in the last game and perhaps the Spaniard will start in this clash, with a low-scoring encounter expected as Burnley look to return to basics.
