What channel is Wolves vs Aston Villa on? Kick-off time, TV & live stream details, latest team news

Premier League football is back with a bang!

Football fans rejoice as the international break is over and what a game we’ve got to kick things back off on Saturday afternoon.

Aston Villa travel to Molineux looking for revenge for the reverse fixture which saw Wolves turn around a 2-0 deficit in the final 10 minutes back in October.

A 95th minute winner from Ruben Neves completed the most unlikely of turnarounds and gave both sets of fans a memory that they will never forget - though for very different reasons.

There’s been plenty of change on both sides since that day but the drama that this fixture can give remains the same.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the big game.

When and where is the match?

Wolves vs Aston Villa takes place at Wolves’ home of Molineux on Saturday April 2.

Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00 (BST).

Is Wolves vs Aston Villa on TV?

No. Sadly for everyone, the game won’t be televised due to the 3PM black-out of fixtures in the UK.

Match coverage will be available via each team’s respective platforms WolvesTV & VillaTV though again, only audio versions.

Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day from 22:20 on Saturday evening.

Who is the match referee?

Darren England will take charge of the fixture between the two with Adrian Holmes and Matthew Wilkes as his assistants. Darren Bond is the fourth official with Lee Mason and Stuart Burt in charge of VAR.

England has refereed just 12 Premier League games so far this season and awarded seven penalty kicks including one for Brentford when they beat Wolves 2-0 back in September.

Team news

Unless anything new breaks over the next 24 hours, which we will of course update you with, both squads seem to have returned from the international break unscathed.

Wolves will be without Raul Jimenez who was sent off last time out whilst influential midfielder Ruben Neves will also definitely miss the contest through injury.

Nelson Semedo, Ki-Jana Hoever and Pedro Neto could all come into contention following their own respective injury problems.

Aston Villa on the other hand are pretty much 100% good to go.

Marvelous Nakamba who has been out with a serious injury since December could return to the bench.

Likely: Bertrand Traore (Burkina Faso), Trezeguet (Egypt), Marvelous Nakamba (Zimbabwe) Games impacted: Jan 2: Brentford (A); Jan 15: Man Utd (H); Jan 22: Everton (A); Feb 8: Leeds (H)
