- Wolves to win – 17/20
- Over 2.5 goals – 21/20
ASTON VILLA host Wolves this afternoon in their big Premier League derby clash.
Wolves can leapfrog Manchester United into fifth place with a win, while Villa know a win will take them out of the relegation zone.
These two sides haven't played a league game here since 2018, when Villa ran out 4-1 winners in a second-tier clash.
Villa boss Dean Smith has hailed midfielder Douglas Luiz for his displays since the Prem restart: “Douglas has been unbelievable since we've come back, so yes Wolves have created a lot and will against us – but we believe we have the players who can thwart them.
“He walked through the door without much of a pre-season. He's now got a really good understanding of his teammates.”
Both Danny Drinkwater and Frederic Guilbert could feature for Villa after sitting out the midweek draw with Newcastle.
John McGinn is back in action and suffered no new injury issues after a long lay-off, while Wesley remains out.
For Wolves, Nuno Santo has a full-strength side to pick from in this one.
When the teams met earlier in the campaign at Molineux, Wolves ran out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez
