Villa’s clash with Newcastle last week was postponed due to coronavirus but Dean Smith’s side still sit 12th in the table, despite having played two fewer Premier League fixtures than most of their rivals.

Aston Villa: Frederic Guilbert, Kortney Hause and Keinan Davis are all rated 50/50 for this clash. Trezeguet should also be fit after a collision in Monday’s 2-1 loss to West Ham.

Our prediction: Wolves v Aston Villa

Saturday sees two teams that have already hit top form and suffered big defeats this season come together at Molineux – and this clash really could go either way.

Both managers will hope to exploit weaknesses in the others’ arsenal and seek to control the midfield battle early on.

We could well see plenty of scrappy challenges here but also a lot of goalmouth action. Villa love to bomb forward with Jack Grealish in command, while Wolves will be ready to pounce at any moment.

Our prediction: Wolves 2-2 Aston Villa
