Relegation-threatened Aston Villa are winless in seven Premier League (PL) matches (D2, L5), and concerningly, each of those defeats saw them concede 2+ goals.
That shouldn’t come as a huge shock though, given that Villa have conceded a league-high 1.90 goals on average per game.
Trailing at half-time in four of their previous seven league matches coincides with Villa’s often slow starts to fixtures this season – particularly at home.
They have a goal difference of -6 (GF:3, GA:9) inside the opening 30 minutes of their PL home games this campaign, but have countered these slow starts by scoring five of their previous seven home goals after half-time.
Champions League chasing Wolverhampton Wanderers are undefeated in seven PL matches (W4, D3), securing six clean sheets during that run. Notably, they scored six of their nine goals in that sequence after half-time, and have netted 72.72% of their PL away goals during the second half.
