Burnley are back in Premier League action this weekend, when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

When the two teams last met, back in December, Burnley secured a 2-1 win at Turf Moor, with their goals coming from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes.

As things stand, the Clarets are 17th in the table, six points clear of Fulham in 18th and with an all-important game in hand.

However, the pressure is still very much on Sean Dyche's side to avoid slipping into the relegation zone over the course of their final six matches of the season, and there's no room for complacency in the ever-unpredictable Premier League.

Speaking ahead of the Wolves game, star man Dwight McNeil reflected on his importance to the side, and claimed: “When I first came in I don't think many people knew me or what I was about. Obviously, now I think more people understand who I am as a player because I've been in the team for so long.

“The expectations get higher but I don't feel there's any more added pressure on me because the other players don't put pressure on me and neither does the gaffer. I'm just focusing on my football and as the gaffer says, enjoying it every week and hopefully keep playing games every week.

“We have a lot of creative players in our team but it is nice to be named as one of them.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Burnley and the rest of the Premier League, as the build-up to the weekend action continues:
