the wolf Head Coach Bruno Lage has said that the new coronavirus variant and the ongoing pandemic will present a major challenge in the coming winter months.

Lage had already confirmed their clash with Burnley that Fernando Marcal has tested positive for coronavirus, this comes after Wolves revealed Daniel Podence also infected with the virus.

Wolves failed to capitalize on their chances against Burnley in a 0-0 draw and Lage praised his defenders.

Wolves were forced to fill the bench with three recent graduates to fill their already thin squad. Regarding the two new cases on the team, Lage expressed his concern with the busy Christmas period coming up.

He said: “If I was nervous two weeks ago, you can imagine how I am right now. It continues, but what can I say.

“That’s why I’ve told you and others who speak weekly that it’s a big challenge for us, me, my staff and my team in December and January.”

Lage also highlighted the team’s defensive contributions after they kept three clean sheets in a row.

“Think we played well for duels, especially the three central defenders, Max [Kilman], [Romain] Saiss and [Conor] Coady, did a great job of stopping [Chris] Wood, [Jay] Rodriguez and [Matej] Vydra.

“We don’t have time to think about it now, we have big ambitions to face Liverpool on Saturday in front of our own fans.

“The most important thing to look for is teamwork. Also, after 14 games, the opponents worked the way we played. If we can find space and move the ball, we can play our game and create chances.

“There are good things we can gain from this game, another point in Premier League ‘ added Lage.

Burnley have only one win in the league but they have gone five games unbeaten and kept a rare clean sheet.

Sean Dyche said: “We didn’t quite find what we wanted offensively.

“The defensive structure is good so very pleased with that.

“Overall we want to win but if you can’t win you have to lose a point.

“The balance we’ve found lately is not winning them but not losing them either.

“One in eight defeats is pretty strong form. We defended very well tonight and in attack we had to find our moments. ”
