Wolverhampton Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Wolves have a good recent record against Aston Villa with three wins and no defeats in the last five meetings. The hosts come into the game after an incredible win over Manchester City last week, and can back that up by taking at least a point against a Villa side who were forced to dig deep in their midweek European victory.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Wolves haven’t managed a clean sheet at home in the league yet and Villa have only failed to score in one of their away games, at Liverpool. This may not be a particular high-scoring game, however, as Wolves have managed just four goals in three home games and only five of Aston Villa’s 18 goals have come away from home, so backing the spoils to be shared in a 1-1 draw is the correct score bet.

Wolverhampton vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Wolves are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Villa (W3, D2).
  • Wolves beat Manchester City last weekend.
  • Villa come into the game after a midweek European fixture.

Wolves looking to continue revival

Wolves return to action on Sunday after their sensational victory over Manchester City last weekend with a West Midlands derby clash with Aston Villa.

I doubt anyone would have predicted the Molineux outfit would stun the champions last weekend, but that result may provide a springboard and they have a good record against Villa in recent years with three wins and no defeats in the last five meetings.

Villa have made a strong start to the season with five wins in seven games, losing twice, but they come into the game after a tough European game on Thursday, where they needed a last-gasp goal to overcome Bosnia’s Zrinjski.

Wolves can get a result

Wolves are a big price to win (5/2 at the time of writing) but as Villa have only lost twice this season in the league – against Newcastle and Liverpool – the double chance market looks a better option and the hosts to either win or draw appeals.

Gary O’Neil’s men may have endured a tough start to the campaign but their form at Molineux has been reasonable, with two wins and two defeats after four games so far. Going back into last season, Wolves have only lost four of their last 13 competitive home games.

Villa were made to work hard against Zrinjski in midweek and Unai Emery called on his big name players early on in the second half, with Ollie Watkins, Matty Cash and Douglas Luiz introduced after the interval. The quick turnaround could work against them, and as Wolves should go into the game in confident mood after beating City they will feel they can get a result here.

Spoils could be shared

Wolves haven’t managed a clean sheet at home in the league yet and Villa have only failed to score at Liverpool. This may not be a particular high-scoring game, however, as Wolves have managed just four goals in three home games and only five of Aston Villa’s 18 goals have come away from home, so backing the spoils to be shared in a 1-1 draw is the correct score bet.
