First Goalscorer Ollie Watkins 5/1 with Bet365

Aston Villa’s 1-0 loss at Manchester United last time out ended a 10-game unbeaten run in the Premier League and was the first time they’ve failed to score in 21 league games under Unai Emery. The Villans will be looking to bounce back against Midlands rivals Wolves as they look to qualify for European football. 

Unai Emery will have to overcome his poor recent record against both Wolves (D3 L1) and Julen Lopetegui (W1 D3 L2) though, with both meetings between the two managers this term ending as 1-1 draws. 

Wolves meanwhile,  have the lowest win rate in games played in May out of all the current Premier League sides, picking up just six victories from their 22 such matches (27% – D6 L10) in the English top flight. Julen Lopetegui’s men will be looking to win four straight home games without conceding for the first time ever in the Premier League.
