Rui Patricio

Let down badly by the defenders in front of him, although you could say that he was caught in no man's land for Wood's third.

Made saves to deny both Lowton and Wood in the second half, at least. 5

Romain Saiss

Inexplicably gifted the ball to Rodriguez in the build-up to Burnley's fourth.

Has never really looked comfortable on the right of a back three and was woeful in this one. 2

Conor Coady

Lost the battle against Wood all ends up. Coady was turned inside-out by the New Zealander as he opened the scoring.

Similarly weaved past by the former Albion man when denied by Patricio in the second half, too. 2

Willy Boly

His worst performance in a Wolves shirt, without a doubt.

Caught underneath the ball for Wood's first – just after messing up a backwards header and nearly allowing Vydra to score. Could not get his bearings, at all. 2

Nelson Semedo

Taken off just before the hour mark. Not as bad as the three centre-halves but was given a rough time by the tricky McNeil. 3

Ruben Neves

A surprise to see him start given he only had the all-clear to return to the group on Friday night after his time self-isolating. Also had a poor game. 3

Leander Dendoncker

Doing very little to suggest he is Wolves' long-term answer in midfield.

Did not have an influence going forward, consistently gave the ball away and was weak in challenges. 2

Rayan Ait-Nouri

One bright run early on but that was as good as it got for the young Frenchman.

Teamed up on by Lowton and Brownhill as his presence very much faded. 3

Adama Traore

Wolves' only plan in the second half was to feed Traore and see what he could do, but he was contained well by Taylor.

Earlier gifted the ball to McNeil for Burnley's second. 3

Willian Jose

Unable to build on his opener against Sheffield United and did little all afternoon. Especially quiet in the second half. 3

Daniel Podence

Well off the pace. Has not looked right since returning from an adductor issue.

Had a couple of shots but was very wasteful, being brushed off the ball easily. Needs to step up. 2

Subs

Fabio Silva (for Semedo, 58)

Tried to link up with Jose, without any real success. 5

Vitinha (for Neves, 69)

Caught as Wood looked to score a fourth but was fairly busy. 5

Morgan Gibbs-White (for Podence, 69)

Did not give the ball away. 5

Not used: Ruddy (gk), Hoever, Richards, Kilman, Otasowie, Corbeanu
