Aston Villa hosts Wolverhampton in what is going to be a battle for safety for the hosts, and a battle for European play for the visitors. Will Aston Villa gain some momentum and potentially get themselves out of the relegation zone, or will Wolves dominate as they usually do?
Aston Villa has not won a single game out of their last 3 since the return. Villa needs to find some points desperately because they are currently sat 19th in the Premier League table. Villa needs to start winning matches if they are to get out of the relegation zone, but they have only gotten two points out of a potential nine in their last 3 games. Aston Villa is a side who have a lot of history in the Premier League, but as of recent, they have just continuously shown us that they are a Championship team, not a Premier League team. Villa has only seen one victory in their last 5 games, winning against Watford 2-1. Villa seemed like they could have scraped a point or more against Chelsea on Sunday, but two quick goals allowed Chelsea to come back from down 1-0 to up 2-1.
Wolverhampton has been very solid since the restart, winning both of their matches with clean sheets. Wolves beat West Ham 2-0 and then followed it up with a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth. Wolves are in 6th place in the league and they will want to get a 5th place spot as that will be enough for them to qualify for the Champions League next season. Wolves are a very solid team and they know they can achieve that. Wolves have the attacking power to beat any team, and they will put their foot down in these last 7 games and do all they can to get into the Champions League.
The reverse fixture was a 2-1 home victory for Wolverhampton and I see this match panning out in a similar fashion. Aston Villa is desperate for points and I would be shocked if they did not get a goal, but at the end of the day, Wolves are the much better side and they'll score multiple goals to take this one home.
