WOL vs AVL Dream11: Wolverhampton Wanderers take on West Midlands rivals Aston Villa at Molineux on Saturday with both teams looking to return to winning ways. Anfield has always been a tricky place for away sides to visit, even more so now Liverpool are reigning champions. Therefore, it was expected of Wolves to perhaps struggle a bit when they went head-to-head with Klopp's men last week. But to lose 4-0 in that fashion may have come as a surprise to many, with Wolves’ lacklustre performance comparable with their average form and league position this season. Villa come into this one with an additional week’s rest following the postponement of their clash against Newcastle, which could play a part in the outcome on Saturday. Expect a close game but perhaps one Wolves will slightly edge.

A) Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Raul Jimenez will miss out for Wolves due to a fractured skull. Jonny has stepped up his recovery from a knee injury, but he remains ruled out for the moment.
Doubtful: Wolves do have fit and fine squad except Raul and Jonny and don't have a player who is doubtful for this WOL vs AVL Dream11 Prediction.
Expected changes: Wolves unsurprisingly looked off it in attack with star striker Raul Jimenez absent and that will likely continue until the January transfer window.

Patricio; Semedo, Boly, Coady, Marcal; Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto

Injury Report, Unavailability: For Aston Villa, Ross Barkley is expected to miss out for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury.
Doubtful: Dean Smith hasn't recovered anyone too important in the week off but Villa's starting XI will be fresh and well-drilled for the challenge of Wolves.
Expected changes: The only possible change is Bertrand Traore in for Trezeguet, with the latter without a goal all season from 22 attempts on goal.
AVL Playing 11 (probable):
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane; Trezeguet, Watkins, Grealish

Both sides have lost a bit of momentum and could do with a positive result on Saturday.

We predict a 2-1 win for the Wolves in the WOL vs AVL Today Match Prediction .
