Wolves v Aston Villa Preview [LIVE]

Date: Sunday 10th November
Venue: Molineux
Kick off time: 14.00

On Sunday Wolves host Aston Villa for their second home game in 4 days.

Just 11 days previously Villa knocked Wolves out of the Carabao Cup at Villa Park but if Dean Smith thinks that his team will be facing a Wolves side of U23 players this time he is sadly mistaken.
On Thursday evening in front of a near capacity crowd at Molineux, Wolves defeated Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League but their focus is now very sharply on the Premier League. Molineux will once again be rocking with a capacity crowd with both sets of fans full of expectation as they always are for a ‘proper’ local derby.

Villa have the chance to leapfrog Wolves with this game as they are currently in 16th place in the league table with 11 points, 4 places and 2 points below Wolves.

After trouncing Norwich in early October and beating Brighton at home 2 weeks later, the only game that Villa have won since is the EFL cup victory over wolves having fallen to defeats by Man City and Liverpool.

Wolves have now won their last 3 Europa League games and are unbeaten in 6 in the league.

Wolves will once again be without key defender Willy Boly and midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is also unavailable as he continues with his recovery from a back injury.
Villa will be without Keinan Davis who has a hamstring injury but will be hoping that skipper, Jack Grealish will be fully recovered from the calf injury that he picked up during the game against Man City.


The game will be shown live on Sky Sports Premier League

Talking of changing sides, Joleon Lescott was on Sky yesterday saying he grew up in Brum as a Villa supporter but he is unquestionably a Wolves supporter nowadays

a lot of top footballers aren't that into football supporting, think bullys team as a kid was liverpool, a very good kid in our village who has top clubs after him says he's an arsenal fan but you can ask him on a monday how they got on and he doesn't have a clue.

I thought Adama's attitude towards his old club, Villa, was perfect. He says he has nothing to prove to the club or the fans and he plays for Nuno, himself and the Wolves team. Everything that he has become is down to Nuno and his coaching staff and he knows it!

Wouldn't it be ironic if after being rejected by Barcelona, Villa and Middlesbrough, that Traore becomes such a phenomenon at Wolves that we end up selling him back to Barca for 100m euros

No question that Nuno will deserve most of the credit for turning Traore into a player. But Traore himself also talks very highly about Pulis and evidently still phones him for advice
