It’s off to Molineux we head for the early game in the Premier League this Saturday, with Wolves hosting Brentford.
The hosts recorded their first win of the season last weekend, beating Watford 2-0, ending a run of six straight league defeats. They deserved that success at Vicarage Road and will be hopeful of building on it today.
Brentford started their first season among the elite with a famous win over Arsenal, but their last-gasp defeat against Brighton last week might have taken the wind out of their sails.
The home team’s leading light so far this season has been Adama Traore, and we look for the Wolves winger to cause Brentford trouble today. He’s 5/1 to have more than one shot on target, and we’ll be on that.
The late game comes from Villa Park, with Aston Villa hosting Everton.
The visitors have made a good start to life under Rafa Benitez, with their victory over Burnley last weekend meaning they lie joint top with some of the league’s big hitters.
Aston Villa lost at Chelsea last weekend but they were right in that game for a long time – they had plenty of chances in the first half.
This game will be close, but we note that Burnley caused the Toffees trouble at times and think Villa’s forward line can do the same. Danny Ings has scored five Premier League goals in 11 appearances versus Everton – they are the only club he has scored against for all three of his previous top-flight teams – and we look for him to open the scoring.
Traore (Wolves) to have over 1 shot on target, 1 pt, at 5/1, William Hill
Ings (Aston Villa) to score first, 1 pt, at 11/2, William Hill
