English Premier League: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Aston Villa – prediction, team news, lineups

Wolverhampton Wanderers take on West Midlands rivals Aston Villa at Molineux on Saturday. The hosts were beaten by Liverpool last weekend, while Villa have gone down 2-1 in back-to-back matches to slip to 12th, two place below their opponents.

The announcement comes after the Premier League revealed last week the 2020/21 season would start on September 12 and run until May 23, 2021.

Villa have two games in hand on a number of sides around them, potentially seeing them climb as high as fourth with a couple of wins. The match with Newcastle United last week was called off due to a coronavirus outbreak in their opponents’ camp, meaning that they have had a 12-day rest between games.

Here is a full rundown of the fixtures for the 2020-21 EPL season:

Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Semedo, Boly, Coady, Marcal; Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane; Trezeguet, Watkins, Grealish
