Wolverhampton Wanderers face Burnley in this Premier League clash.

When is the match, and kick off time?

The match is on Sunday 16th September 2018, and kicks off at 1:30pm UK time. The venue for the match is Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton, West Midlands).


It would be wise for Wolverhampton Wanderers to play intricately and avoid taking too many shooting chances at range, as Burnley have an excellent record of defending those chances. Burnley may not be able to play their usual style of possession football, as Wolverhampton Wanderers have shown a good ability to steal from the opposition. Wolverhampton Wanderers will need to be creative with their attacking chances, as Burnley are good at defending attacking through balls. Burnley will hope that Wolverhampton Wanderers attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings. Wolverhampton Wanderers should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Burnley in the air.
