Aston Villa 0-1 Wolves: Dendoncker sends Nuno's men up to fifth

Manchester United's Harry Maguire scores his side's second goal during the FA Cup sixth round football match against Norwich City at Carrow Road stadium in Norwich England Saturday

Having taken aim at the Premier League fixture schedulers after Villa's fourth match in 11 days, Smith now has an entire week to work with his players before Sunday's trip to Anfield.

They are three points ahead of Manchester United, who have played a game less.

The hosts showed intent to get an early goal but they were caught on a counter-attack in the 18th minute that almost resulted in a goal, as Raul Jimenez had a header saved by goalkeeper Orjan Nyland. Dean Smith's side are running out of time to safe themselves from relegation and Wolves totally outclassed them at Villa Park. Wolves had four or five decent chances throughout and took one of them and that was that.

Wolves have now won all three of their games since the restart following a three-month stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They are just two points off fourth-place Chelsea and remain right in the Champions League battle.

Doherty's association with the club stretches back to 2010, when he was spotted by Mick McCarthy playing for Bohemians against Wolves in a pre-season friendly, and signed for just £75,000.

United forward Odion Ighalo and Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell scored with their respective sides' first shots on target as an entertaining second half followed a forgettable first. That sums it up. He was involved in Wolves' goal and the last thing you want to see if you're an opposition defender is Traore coming off the bench to run at you.

"I'm very happy for Leander Dendoncker, he gives so much to us and he truly deserves this moment".

The game got tight in the early stages of the second stanza, with no clear chances created and Santo eventually brought on Traore in place of Jota on the hour-mark for tactical reasons.

Villa put the visitors under some pressure late on, but failed to trouble Rui Patricio in goal.

Wolves began to find more space to put the hosts under pressure and they were nearly gifted an opener just before the break.

But Nuno sent on Adama Traore after the break and the electric winger immediately made an impact. Jimnez whipped in a cross which Spaniard Jonny flicked to Dendoncker, who pushed the ball onto his left foot before rifling it past goalkeeper Orjan Nyland.
