English Premier League action continues with Wolverhampton Wanderers taking on Burnley at the Molineux Stadium on Sunday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are 12th in the EPL standings with 41 points from 32 games played.

Meanwhile, Burnley are in a position of concern as they have mustered just 33 points from 32 matches. They are 17th on the table, hovering over the relegation zone.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are coming off a 1-0 victory over minnows Sheffield United. Willian Jose's 60th minute goal turned out to be the difference-maker on the day.

Burnley suffered a crushing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United in their last game, leaving the Clarets in a precarious spot in the standings.
