Local pride, and even the possibility of European football, is at stake with the Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream.

Wolves remain within touching distance of the European places and go into the weekend just two points behind seventh-placed West Ham. They will be without key forward Raul Jimenez, though: he was sent off in his team’s dramatic 3-2 defeat to Leeds before the international break. Wolves had won three games in a row prior to that collapse, beating Crystal Palace, Watford and Everton without conceding a goal.

Steven Gerrard brings his side to Molineux for a Premier League Midlands derby for the first time. Aston Villa are actually just one place behind Wolves in the table, but trail them by 10 points (although they have a game in hand). Comfortably in mid-table and with little to play for, there have been concerns that some of the Villains have already clocked off for the summer following a lackluster display against Arsenal.

A host of their players did score while on international duty though, including Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings for England against Ivory Coast on Tuesday, and John McGinn for Scotland.  Wolves' Joao Moutinho featured for Portugal as they overcame North Macedonia to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Villa have lost three of the last five top-flight meetings between the two sides, only claiming one victory. However, they did win 0-1 on their visit to Molineux last season and are yet to lose three games in a row since Gerrard took over in November. They should also be buoyed by the expected return of fullback Lucas Digne, who played for France against South Africa on Tuesday.

Wolves players Nelson Semedo and Pedro Neto may have recovered from their recent injuries sufficiently to be available to Bruno Lage. However, Ruben Neves is out for at least six weeks with knee ligament damage.

Here's how they line up:

Wolves: Sa, Boly, Coady, Castro, Kilman, Marcal, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Silva, Podence, Trincao.

Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne. McGinn, Sanson, Ramsey, Bailey, Coutinho, Watkins.
