The Premier League returns once again this weekend as we say farewell to European football for a few more weeks. There are plenty of intriguing games for us all to sample from top to bottom, with one of the best, arguably, being said to take place in the Midlands as Wolverhampton Wanderers prepare to go head to head with Aston Villa. It hasn’t always been the biggest rivalry in the Midlands, but it certainly seems to have turned into that over the course of the last few years.


There was a great deal of panic over what was going to change at the club when the Europa League journey came into focus, but following a string of strong results, it’s safe to say that there was nothing to worry about. Nuno’s men have always been able to manage their resources well, and that has been especially true throughout the course of the current campaign. There’s still a long way to go before their season can officially be deemed a success, but they’re on the right track.

Team News

Boly is the only long term injury concern for Wolves, with Jonny Otto being tipped to return alongside Jota who missed the Europa League win due to suspension.

Aston Villa

Dean Smith has worked wonders with Villa both in the Championship and the Premier League, and now, the former European champions will be viewing a place in the top half of the table as a real possibility. They aren’t going to be afraid of anyone especially after putting in strong shifts against the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks. They aren’t quite back to their former glories, but they’re much closer than they were just a few years ago.

Team News

Jack Grealish is back after recovering from injury with Guilbert also being tipped to feature. Jota and Davis are the main two names ruled out through injury at this moment in time.

Factors to Consider

  • In their Carabao Cup meeting, Aston Villa beat Wolves 2-1.
  • Wolves have won two, drawn three and lost one of their last six games.
  • Aston Villa have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Wolves have scored seven goals and conceded six in their last six games.
  • Aston Villa have scored 12 goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.


From a quality perspective, Wolves just feel like they’ve got more to offer than Villa at this moment in time. Momentum is an important thing as we all know, but we just can’t picture a scenario in which they drop points here. In a game of this magnitude they always seem to put in a solid shift in, and Molineux will be rocking for a derby showdown like this. Villa are tough but we think the attacking prowess of Wolves, in addition to their patience on the ball, will be able to see them through.
