Wolves vs Aston Villa: Recommended bets

Fabio Silva to score first. Following their failure to score at Anfield, Nuno may opt to hand new signing Fabio Silva a start.

Silva has only been handed several opportunities off the bench but with Raul Jimenez out and Wolves’ previous result, Silva could be handed his opportunity to lead the line.

The 18-year-old is 11/2 to score the first goal on Saturday.

Wolves vs Aston Villa: Match preview

Wolves were well beaten on Sunday by Liverpool and their lack of a true goal scorer was highlighted.

The Reds managed to put four past the visitors without Wolves offering a response.

Nuno’s side have struggled for goals this season, netting just 11 times, at least six fewer than any other side in the league’s top half.

Wolves were just coming off the back of an impressive win over Arsenal the previous week.

However, the defeat saw them drop to 10th, remaining on 17 points from 11 matches.

Consecutive defeats for Villa

Aston Villa have now suffered back-to-back defeats since their 3-0 win over Arsenal.

Dean Smith’s side are on a bad run of form which has seen them lose four of their last five games in the league.

Following a promising start, the Midlands club have dropped into 12th.

Although, they have two games in hand over the majority of the sides around them.
