Aston Villa will face Wolves on Wednesday when they welcome them to Villa Park to secure another victory in this home encounter. The Villans recorded a splendid 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur as they recovered their game under Unai Emery. On the other hand, the Wolves suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, thereby failing to climb up the relegation places.
Unai Emery will probably make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI as Philippe Coutinho features from the start while John McGinn goes to the treatment room.
4-2-3-1 Aston Villa Predicted XI Vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
Emiliano Martinez could be given the opportunity to operate in goal for his side hoping to keep a clean sheet as he features from the start. Tyrone Mings will continue to function alongside Ezri Konsa at the heart of Villa’s backline as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay throughout the game.
Ashley Young will continue at the right-back position while Lucas Digne keeps his place on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will get forward and join in on the attack while keeping a solid defensive shape at the back to stop the opposition from creating too many chances from the wide areas.
Douglas Luiz and Boubacar Kamara will anchor the midfield for Unai Emery’s side as they focus on dominating the opposition at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Leon Bailey, Philippe Coutinho and Emi Buendia will operate just ahead of them as part of the Villans’ attack. All three of them will have to find a way to create some decent chances in front of the goal.
John Mcginn will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he was seen clutching his hamstring in the previous encounter.
Danny Ings will lead the charge for the Villans as he will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net against the opposition’s defence.
Ollie Watkins will have to be content with a place on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter if the West Midlands club are in need of a goal by then.
