The international break is finally coming to an end and in its place, we have a whole host of exciting fixtures to enjoy across the Premier League landscape. We’re heading into the autumn rush with a slew of intriguing games to come over the next few months and one of them will go down at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon. Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers have gone to war with one another many times over the years and they’ll do so in a mid-table clash in the second city this weekend.

Aston Villa

After an uncertain start it seems like Aston Villa are finally starting to piece everything together this season. Dean Smith needed to think on his feet over the summer after the departure of Jack Grealish and the new signings he made appear to be working pretty well – so far, at least. Villa want to be living the high life amongst the very elite of English football and if they keep going down this road then they should be nailed on to do just that.

Team News

Trezeguet and Davis have both been ruled out through injury with Martinez, Luiz, Sanson and Bailey all being fitness doubts – with Martinez and Luiz being on international duty until Friday.

Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers have also struggled their way through the first few games of the campaign – but that has very little to do with the thrilling style of play introduced to the first team by Bruno Lage. There’s an awful lot of potential residing in this squad and while they may not have the kind of depth that would be the catalyst behind them making a push for Europe, there are plenty of things for the club to build on.

Team News

Neves is a fitness concern, Trincao has contracted COVID-19 and the following players will not be taking part due to injury: Jonny, Bueno, Mosquera and Neto.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting back in March, Aston Villa and Wolves drew 0-0.
  • Aston Villa have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Wolves have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Aston Villa have scored seven goals and conceded seven in their last six games.
  • Wolves have scored seven goals and conceded six in their last six games.

Conclusion

While Wolves may have some fascinating weapons when it comes to their attacking prowess, there are definitely big question marks surrounding their defence. That’s an error where we think they’ll struggle this weekend, especially against a full Villa Park in what some dub to be a “rivalry” between the two sides. The visitors should get on the scoresheet but in the end, the hosts will edge out a 2-1 win to continue their push towards the top six.
