Unsettled Wolves startled treble winners Man City with a 2-1 win at Molineux last weekend, putting an end to the champion's 100% winning record this season. Boss Gary O'Neil will be hoping to build on that success against Aston Villa. New Wolves captain Max Kilman will be charged with replicating the defensive wall of steel against Ollie Watkins, while Pedro Neto, using his lightning bolt speed, is the man to give the opposition nightmares at the other end. Wolves might be 15th in the table but that City could spell trouble for high-flying Villa. 

Seven Premier League games played, 5 wins and 18 goals scored – can Aston Villa maintain the tremendous top five start to the season in the West Midlands derby this weekend? Unai Emery has been rocked by injuries to Tyrone Mings and Alex Moreno, and faces a midweek game against Zrinjski Mostar in the Europa Conference league on Thursday. Still, victory at the Molineux against O'Neil's unpredictable outfit would be sweet.

For Wolves, Santiano Bueno and Hugo Bueno are both doubts, nursing small knocks.

Moussa Diaby and Boubacar Kanmara are a doubt for Villa while Jacob Ramsey and Alex Moreno have both been ruled out.

Wolves XI: Sa (GK); Semedo; Dawson, Kilman, Toti, Ait-Nouri; Gomes, Lemina; Hwang, Cunha, Neto.

Wolves subs: Bentley (GK), Doherty, S. Bueno, Boubacar Traore, Silva, Kalajdzic, Jonny, Doyle, Sarabia.

Villa XI: Martinez (GK); Konsa, D. Carlos, Pau, Digne; Kamara, D. Luiz, Cash, McGinn; Diaby, Watkins.

Villa subs: Olsen (GK), Tielemans, Bertrand Traore, Chambers, Lenglet, Zaniolo, Duran, Bailey, Dendoncker.

It will surely be a thrilling derby, but who will have the bragging rights come the end of the day? You can find out, because we will tell you how to watch it from anywhere. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.

How to watch the Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream wherever you are

The Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Peacock or another service and watch the game.
