Wolverhampton and Aston Villa are clashing at Molineux Stadium in round 31 of the English Premier League. Wolves are one of the best defensive teams in the league, but their offense is barely averaging a goal per game. Aston Villa was on a nice winning streak, but they have now lost their last 2 games in a row.
With 46 points, Wolverhampton is now in 8th place, which is still close to one of the European spots, but I think Wolves lack the offense to climb any higher. Of the 31 goals they have scored so far this season, Jimenez has scored 6 for Wolverhampton, while Hwang has added 5 goals. Jimenez has also added 4 assists. However is now the only injured player for Wolverhampton. Because Wolverhampton is playing only in the EPL, they have a solid chance at getting somewhere, but their schedule is really tough, and because they don’t have a lot of offense, it will be hard for them to qualify for Europe.
Aston Villa is in 9th place in the standings with 36 points, they have scored 41 goals which is not bad, but they have also conceded 40 goals in only 29 games. In their last 2 games, Aston Villa has 2 losses, they have conceded 3 goals while scoring only 1, but they were playing solid soccer in those 2 games. Aston Villa is a very talented team with a fantastic coach who will definitely improve this team, even more, they on signing some players, and they are moving in the right direction. Watkins is Aston Villa’s leading goalscorer with 7 goals, but he has been quite inconsistent this season. Ramsey has added 6 goals. Danny Ings has added 5 assists. There are a few injuries in Aston Villa, but nothing major. I think Aston Villa is good enough to bounce back in this game, however, they will need their offense to work perfectly because they are facing a strong defense in this game.
Aston Villa doesn’t have a single draw on the road this season, they either win or lose. Wolves are an outstanding defensive team, even though I think they are overperforming a bit. I have a feeling of a draw here, and it might be a high scoring draw.
