Wolves welcome Aston Villa to Molineux for a Midlands derby in the English Premier League. Wolves are unbeaten in their last six matches and have the quality to see off the inconsistent Villans on home soil.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Form


Wolves showed their character at the Emirates as they came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Arsenal thanks to Raul Jimenez’s second half effort. They were thoroughly deserving of the draw and with more shots on target (8-4) and expected goals (1.51-1.03).

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches. Among their recent results is a 2-0 victory at champions Manchester City before last week’s draw at Arsenal. In-form striker Raul Jimenez was on target once again in midweek in a 1-0 win over Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers News


Wolves are still without injured defender Willy Boly so Romian Saiss and Leander Dendoncker should continue to deputize at centre back alongside Conor Coady. Top scorer Raul Jimenez is also expected to start in attack with Adama Traore and Diogo Jota providing support.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa are coming off a 2-1 defeat at home against Liverpool in their last Premier League fixture. Trezeguet’s early opener was cancelled out by a late blitz from the Reds.

Dean Smith’s men have been inconsistent this season with just three wins from 11 matches. They often struggle on the road having suffered four defeats in their five away matches this season.

Aston Villa News


Captain Jack Grealish missed the defeat to Liverpool but is expected to return for the trip to Wolves. Trezeguet is likely to retain his place in attack after scoring his first goal for the club last weekend While Wesley should lead the line having scored just four goals this season.

Wolverhampton vs Aston Villa Match Up


Wolves have developed a resilient streak in recent weeks which is driven by Raul Jimenez. The Mexican striker has scored two goals in his last three Premier League matches and is expected to get the better of the Villans.

Aston Villa are usually poor defensively on the road and should struggle to cope with the impressive Raul Jimenez. Things have not been particularly smooth at the other end of the pitch with Wesley currently on a four-match goal drought.
