Player to watch – Leon Bailey

Leon Bailey has been one of Aston Villa's best players this season, chipping in with goals and assists on a regular basis.

The Jamaican international has scored eight times and provided eight assists in the Premier League this season, only Ollie Watkins and assists more times for Villa this season.

Offers goals and assists from the wing

We expect Bailey's pace and dribbling ability to cause the Wolves' defence plenty of headaches in this game and we wouldn't be surprised to see the former Leverkusen make add to his goals or assists tally.
