Wolves v Aston Villa injury news as four out and three doubts - gallery

Latest injury and team news ahead of the Premier League clash between Wolves and Aston Villa at Molineux.

Wolves and Aston Villa clash at Molineux in the West Midlands Derby on Sunday in an afternoon kick-off in the Premier League.

The match had been moved to Sunday to allow Villa enough recovery following their Europa Conference League win over HSK Zrinjski Mostar. John McGinn netted in the fourth minute of stoppage time to get the Villains’ European campaign up and running.

Both teams secured big wins last weekend in their own right. Villa hit Brighton & Hove Albion for six with Ollie Watkins scoring a hat-trick in front of England manager Gareth Southgate. The 27-year-old has been recalled to the Three Lions squad for the first time since March 2022, and has scored seven goals so far this term.

Across the Midlands at Molineux meanwhile, Wolves toppled the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City. It was Pedro Neto’s work that forced Ruben Dias to put the ball into his own net to give Gary O’Neil’s side a dream start. Julian Alvarez equalised for Pep Guardiola’s side but they weren’t level for long as Hwang Hee-chan restored the hosts lead and there was no way back.

The table is sure to change before the two teams face off in their final game before the international break, however there are 10 places separating them. Villa are fifth on 15 points, whilst Wolves are on seven points. Both teams have some issues to address when it comes to team selection, though it’s Villa who have been hit the hardest.

Flick through the pages to see who’s fit and who’s not, and if there’s any last-minute decisions to be made. Here’s the latest team news ahead of the Premier League clash between Wolves and Aston Villa.
