The international break arguably came at the wrong time for Wolves, who had started to find their feet under Bruno Lage with back-to-back wins against Southampton and Newcastle. Aston Villa represent a step up in difficulty and Wolves’ hopes of a third successive away win are likely to depend on a defence that has conceded just one goal in four away games and the re-emergence of Raúl Jiménez as a threat up front. Villa will be looking to extend their impressive home form, which has brought seven points from three games, but will still be without the mercurial Leon Bailey through injury. Stephen Hollis
