Aston Villa picked up a comfortable three points on Tuesday evening as they dispatched Sunderland 3-0 at the Stadium of Light.

However, due to the fact that Cardiff City also won, Villa still sit in third place in the table – 4 points behind second and 1 point above Fulham in fourth. With just 11 games remaining (10 for others), things are going to go right down to the wire.

Next up for Villa is a tricky home match against league leaders Wolves on Saturday evening. Wolves have been the best team in the league this season and are currently 6 points ahead of the chasing pack (10 points ahead of Villa).

Villa played poorly the last time these two sides met and they will know that a repeat performance is likely to lead to another comfortable win for the visitors.

Here is our predicted Villa XI for Saturday’s match against Wolves:
