Wolverhampton Wanderers v Aston Villa - Premier League
Aston Villa take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Wednesday

Aston Villa will entertain 19th-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers at Villa Park in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Aston Villa resumed their league campaign with a 3-1 home defeat against Liverpool but bounced back with a 2-0 away win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. Second-half goals from Emi Buendia and Douglas Luiz helped them record their third win in four league games.

Wolverhampton have struggled in their recent games but resumed their league campaign with a 2-1 away win over Everton. They were unable to maintain that momentum as they fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Manchester United on Wednesday. Marcus Rashford scored the winning goal of the game in the 76th minute, coming on as a second-half substitute.

With their third defeat in their last four league games, they remained in 19th place in the league table with 13 points and will need to secure a win to get out of the relegation zone.

Crucial. ๐Ÿ’ช @Youngy18 https://t.co/uXJjCvUQ1Z

The Wolves have the worst attacking record in the competition, scoring just 10 goals in 17 games, and might struggle here. They have picked up just one win in their last seven league outings and are unlikely to record a win.

Considering the current form of the two teams and Villa's home advantage, we back them to eke out a narrow win.
