Wolves pulled off the comeback of the season to come back from two goals down in one of the exciting football results of the weekend in the Premier League. Aston Villa went in front with Danny Ings and John McGinn scoring in the second half. Romain Saiss started the comeback before Conor Coady headed with five minutes to go. Villa was unlucky when Ruben Neves’ free-kick took a cruel deflection into the bottom corner.

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith: “I find it difficult to explain because it should have been a victory. We were comfortable and we didn’t see that coming. Three set pieces have cost us three goals. You have to defend better when goals get put in the box in the last 10 minutes. There were frantic clearances so that was a disappointment today.”
Wolves boss Bruno Lage: “I think it was these games I want to continue [having in] my career in England. It was until the 94th minute. It is the kind of environment I want and want to live. We don’t deserve to lose. I don’t think Villa deserves to lose. It was a good game, a good performance, I think we created a lot of problems for Villa.”
