Villa’s midweek misstep
Aston Villa’s pursuit of continental qualification this season hit a bump on Wednesday evening when they fell to a 1-0 reverse at Sheffield United, despite holding a one-man advantage over the Blades for more than half an hour.
With Jack Grealish’s defence-splitting skillset absent and Aaron Ramsdale in inspired form between the sticks for the hosts, Villa fell to their tenth defeat of the campaign in midweek, though they are still well on course to improve on last season’s 17th placed finish.
Wolves humbled by City
Wolves briefly threatened to upset the odds at Man City last time out, though Conor Coady’s second-half equalizer at the Etihad Stadium was their only effort on target and the Citizens eventually roared to a deserved 4-1 win.
Citizens capitulation aside, things have been looking up for Wolves however, and they had gone five fixtures without defeat before their loss against the champions elect.
Both teams to score at Villa Park?
Villa’s defeat at Sheffield United was unusual in that it was only the third time in 14 Premier League fixtures where Dean Smith’s team failed to register, and the Villains will expect to rediscover their goalscoring touch against Midlands rivals Wolves.
The hosts have only failed to notch twice in 11 Premier League assignments at Villa Park this season, though a Wolves team playing their way into decent final third form can strike back at the opposite end.
With Pedro Neto’s creativity key, Wanderers impacted the scoresheet in five of their last six attempts, and with Villa certain to be a little shaky following their loss to the division’s bottom club on Wednesday, Wolves should have chances to hit the net again.
Backing both teams to score on Saturday appeals as a result, while our 1-1 correct score prediction tips Wolves to claim their fourth draw in seven Premier League away tests against a Villa side that have bagged exactly one goal in five of their last seven league fixtures.
