In their most recent match Burnley played against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, with the final score being a slender 1:0 home victory. At the moment, the club is enjoying a streak of two successive victories and have not sampled the taste of a single loss in its last three games. Being the host turned out to be of little importance in Burnley’s recent ten encounters, with the sides performing on home ground triumphing on 5 occasions and the visitors recording three wins. The outfit was held to a draw in only two of their previous 10 meetings. Looking at the side’s previous five clashes, it becomes apparent that one featured over 2.5 goals and two witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, the Clarets managed to prevent goals in their net two times and failed to score on their own in only one case. The total goals scored across the team’s last five outings amounted to 12.
