It’s a West Midlands derby to kick-start the Premier League action on Saturday and Wolves will fancy their chances against an Aston Villa side slowly sliding down the table.
Wolves managed to win both Premier League encounters against Villa last season, triumphing 1-0 at Villa Park, before a 2-1 victory at Molineux.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were humbled 4-0 by Liverpool in their last outing at Anfield and will be determined to return to winning ways as soon as possible.
After a flying start to the season, winning their first four league games, Villa have lost their way in recent weeks, barring a 3-0 win over Arsenal.
Four defeats in their last five games will concern Smith, especially with his side conceding 11 goals in those four losses.
Wolves should be able to expose Villa’s porous defence again this weekend and are at an attractive price of
27/20 to win on home soil at Molineux.
Spurs Can Continue Mean Defensive Streak
Jose Mourinho has given Tottenham the defensive edge they had been lacking and they will look to shut out Crystal Palace when they meet at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Five clean sheets in their last six outings in all competitions have brought about optimism for what could be achieved by the north London outfit this season.
Crystal Palace have failed to score in two of their last three Premier League outings, drawing blanks against both Burnley and Newcastle.
The Eagles remain over reliant on Wilfried Zaha for goals and if Spurs can keep the Ivory Coast international quiet, they could well win to nil, which his on offer at
Foxes Set to Sink Seagulls
Leicester City will look to continue their strong record in the Premier League against Brighton when they welcome Graham Potter’s side to the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
With four wins and two draws against the Seagulls, Leicester have not lost any of their six meetings with the south coast outfit in the top flight.
Brighton have just one win in their last nine Premier League outings and they look like they could leak goals once again at the home of the Foxes, who are
21/20 to pick up the three points.
Ings to Cut Through Blades’ Defence
The return of forward Danny Ings has been a welcome boost for Southampton as they prepare to host Sheffield United at St Mary’s.
Ings, who already has six league goals to his name this term, returned from knee surgery at the start of the week to help Saints to victory against Brighton and the England international looks set to be a thorn in the Blades’ side this weekend.
As the South Yorkshire outfit look for their first win of the league campaign, Ings is
13/5 to score the opening goal of Sunday’s game and
20/21 to score anytime against Chris Wilder’s struggling side.
