BUR vs WOL Dream11: Burnley play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday evening looking to extend their unbeaten record in the Premier League to four matches. After a slow start to the season, Burnley have begun to pick up points, with eight points gained from their past five games. On the contrary, rather than finding a good spell of form, Wolves have had an inconsistent past five games, with a heavy 4-0 defeat to Liverpool and a disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Villa. Despite this, wins over Chelsea and Arsenal, as well as a draw against an in-form Southampton will still fill Wolves win confidence that they can get a result against Burnley, a game they should be winning with ease.
