Wolverhampton make a trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley in search of 3 other points that help cement their 6th place in the Premier League rankings. However, Burnley played host to the West Midlands club knowing that winning would put the club two points behind the competition with the remaining two matches.

While Sean Dyche appears to be on the verge of being sacked earlier in the campaign, he has inspired a pretty amazing result last time, the latest being at Anfield on Saturday. Although Burnley found himself under pressure, the equalizer in the second half ended Liverpool's perfect home record, as well as extending their unbeaten run to five matches. The Northwest Club still has a lot of work to do, but the efficiency on both fronts will help the most pessimistic Burnley fans also have confidence in this match. With Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion watching this game, the maximum score on Wednesday could be the difference between qualifying for Europe or having to settle for a second half finish. Burnley captain Dyche was able to keep the main line-up when drawing last Liverpool draw, with Erik Pieters in a strange midfield role. However, Johann Berg Gudmundsson is pushing for a return to that position. Although Wolves rediscover the winning flavor at the weekend, Burnley is still capable of scoring this match and Dyche's team has a defense capable of handling Wolves' attacking threat, as well as providing the threat at the other end of the yard.

Wolves' convincing victory over Everton was a crucial result after two ineffective performances against Arsenal and Sheffield United. Nuno Espirito Santo received criticism for his lack of substitutes and suggested that not enough opportunities were given to his team members. However, three players came on the pitch against the Toffees - Leander Dendoncker, Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence - all of which contributed to the goal on Sunday afternoon, prompting fans and critics alike to praise Nuno for his changed his approach. Having performed too poorly against their two direct rivals in the past 10 days, Wednesday's match against Burnley is coming at a bad time. A knee injury against Everton made Neto expected to make it out on Wednesday night and veteran Joao Moutinho could be the replacement.
