Player to watch – Matheus Cunha

Cunha has been one of Wolves standout players this season but has missed the last few games through injury.

The visitors will be hoping to welcome back their Brazilian star who has scored nine times in the Premier League this season, as well as producing six assists.

The Brazilian is expected to return on Tuesday night

Having Cunha back, even just on the bench, could give Wolves the edge in what is set to be a close and competitive 90 minutes at Turf Moor, and we're backing the former Atletico Madrid man to leave his mark on this game if he returns from injury in time to play.
