Wolves best XI v Burnley

Wolves will look to build on their first win of the season when they welcome Burnley to Molineux on Sunday, and Nuno Espirito Santo must make two changes to his starting XI.

Adama Traore scored his first goal for the club as Wolves secured a last-gasp win over West Ham before the international break to give them their first three points since returning to the top-flight.

Espirito Santo will be keen to secure another win this weekend against the Clarets, who are enduring a tough season so far with just one point from their first four games.

In goal, Rui Patricio must retain his place as normal.

In defence, the regular back three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Ryan Bennett must be selected.

At wing-back, Jonny Castro must retain his place on the left, with Matt Doherty on the right.

In midfield, the classy Portuguese duo of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho must start as normal.

The only changes must come in attack, with jet-heeled forward Traore taking the place of Helder Costa on the right wing in his first Premier League start for the club, with Diogo Jota retaining his place on the other flank.

Up front, the injured Raul Jimenez must be replaced by Leo Bonatini, who got the assist for Traore’s winner at the London Stadium.

This is a team which gives Wolves the best chance of overcoming Burnley, and they should really have enough to comfortably beat the Clarets at Molineux on Sunday.
