Bolton Wanderers Preview – Can the Trotters upset the Premier League team?

Ian Evatt’s Bolton Wanderers made a strong start to their season. They kicked off the new campaign with three wins and two draws from five league and cup matches. However, they suffered a 2-0 league reverse to Sheffield Wednesday last time out.

In the first round of the EFL Cup, Wanderers made light work of EFL League Two outfit Salford City. Goals from Elias Kachunga, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, Kieran Sadler, Conor Bradley and Oladapo Afolayan gave Bolton a thumping 5-1 success on home soil.

(odds taken 1218 GMT, Monday 22 August)

The Lancashire club will want to bounce back after suffering their first defeat of the season last time out. Bolton will relish the opportunity as underdogs, and the home win is generously priced at 5/1.

Aston Villa Preview – Will the Villans bounce back with cup win?

Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa have had a tough start to their season. On the opening weekend of the new Premier League campaign, the Villans crashed to a 2-0 defeat at newly promoted Bournemouth. They did manage to sneak past Everton at Villa Park in game two, though.

Aston Villa fell to another disappointing reverse last weekend, this time losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Three points from a possible nine is not the start that the Midlands club were looking for.
