Aston Villa Preview – Lack of goals hampering survival bid?

It is as you were for Aston Villa (19th – W7 D6 L18), who resumed their fight for Premier League survival in 19th place on 17 June and, after three subsequent fixtures inside seven days, are still hovering one spot above bottom club Norwich City. Fortunately for manager Dean Smith, most of the teams battling it out with them have similarly struggled to make inroads down at the wrong end of the table.

Villa have performed reasonably well since returning to action, though, only without those all important points to show for it. According to the xG figures recorded across their three fixtures with Sheffield United, Chelsea and Newcastle, The Villains were the superior side on each occasion. A return of two points from nine will feel a little unjust therefore, though it is clear none of the endeavour and fight has diminished quite yet.

The bare facts, however, highlight a side in dire straits. Seven games without a win now (D2 L5) following the 1-1 draw at St James’ Park on Wednesday with Newcastle, having won once – beating Watford 2-1 at Villa Park on 21 January – in the last ten. And without a regular source of goals, scoring only twice across their previous five league fixtures, it is going to be an uphill struggle securing enough wins to remain in this company.


Alternative Pick: Raul Jimenez Anytime Goalscorer



Wolves Preview – Jimenez hauling his side into top-four contention?

Nuno Espirito Santo is once again doing an excellent cajoling his Wolves (6th – W12 D13 L6) team through an arduous campaign, one that could still end with them qualifying for next season’s Champions League. That is provided the sort of form which has seen them collect 13 of the last 15 points can be sustained through to the end of this current term, with the Midlands outfit level on points with fifth place Manchester United.

As it stands, fifth position will award Champions League football in 2020/21. It is this very lucrative incentive that possibly dragged Wolves over the line on Wednesday, scraping a 1-0 win at Molineux over 18-placed Bournemouth courtesy of another goal from their leading scorer, Raul Jimenez. The Mexican now has two goals in as many games since the restart, after also netting the opener in a 2-0 win at West Ham.

The Mexican, who has four goals in Wolves’ last five league games, now trails Jamie Vardy in the Golden Boot race by only four. Meanwhile, his team are in a similarly rich vein of form with four wins from the last five, having not lost a Premier League game since runaway leaders Liverpool secured a hard-fought 2-1 success at Molineux in January (W4 D3 since).

Aston Villa Vs Wolves Betting Advice

Having tipped Wolves to win at West Ham recently, I am sticking to my guns. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are a class act and appear the most likely outfit to push Chelsea and Man Utd close in the battle for the top-four. This is a must win fixture for them, especially with a tricky run of games to come, but the same certainly applies for Aston Villa who are still in the bottom three after a winless run of seven games – the same number of games Wolves are currently unbeaten in.


Aston Villa Vs Wolves – Key Facts

  • Five of the seven Premier League victories recorded by Aston Villa this season were at Villa Park (home record so far: W5 D3 L7).
  • Only Chelsea (27), Liverpool (38) and Man City (28) have earned more points away from home this season than Wolves (24 – W6 D6 L3).
  • Wolves were denied a Win To Nil in the reverse fixture, inflicting a 2-1 defeat on Aston Villa who grabbed a late consolation on Matchday 12.


Key to the recent success of Wolves has been a resolute rearguard that has kept six clean sheets in its last seven league games. Villa’s recent woes, meanwhile, are largely due to a lack of goals (only two scored in last five games). Wolves have beaten West Ham and Bournemouth without conceding since the restart and are 2/1 (Bet365) to add Dean Smith’s men to that list.
