Wolverhampton Wanderers

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 08:07
In Brief

Put one foot in group stages of Europa League after inspiring win in Turin on Thursday night. Yet to lose this season. Doherty faces late fitness test.

Looking Back

Wolves were clinical on counterattack on Thursday and deservedly beat Torino 3:2 away to give themselves huge advantage before return leg next week.

Premier League season started with back-to-back draws, which added to the 5 wins already in Europe shows how impressive the opening 2 months of the campaign have been for Wolves.

Looking Ahead

Coach Santo must assess condition of those that started both on Monday night vs. Man United and again on Thursday in Turin. Amongst them 2 main forwards Jota and Jimenez.

Doherty missed midweek match with knock, but might return now. Other possible changes will be based on the physical condition of the players on the day of the game.

Points of Interest

Last season sides exchanged home wins.

Burnley

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 08:08
In Brief

Beaten on visit to Arsenal, but displays solid so far. Defour remains out. Brady and Drinkwater also unavailable.

Looking Back

Burnley put up good fight in London vs. Arsenal and despite losing 1:2 there was nothing to be ashamed of from the display.

With 4 goals scored in the 2 games so far, 3 from them by Barnes, Clarets are offering much more going forward in the early rounds than what they displayed for most of last season.

Looking Ahead

Coach Dyche has no reason to touch his line-up and expected to use same starting XI in third consecutive match.

Brady and Drinkwater deemed 'not ready', former only just back after rib injury, but only long-term absentee is Defour.

Points of Interest

Barnes got on the scoresheet in first 2 rounds, now he seeks something he hasn’t done in 6 years – score in 3 consecutive league matches.
