Wolves and Villa are separated by just one place in the Premier League table, and you never quite know what you’re going to get from either side. The West Midlands rivals have been very streaky, comfortable one week and hapless the next, but with local bragging rights at stake, one quality that won’t be lacking is aggression. Make sure you know how to watch a Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream wherever you are.
US soccer fans can watch a Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream, and many more Premier League matches, on CNBC with Sling TV or FuboTV. Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re a US fan stuck outside the States. Those in Canada can enjoy the game on DAZN.

Wolves’ recent collapse against Leeds was all the more astonishing because of Bruno Lage’s defence-first philosophy. And they’re still feeling the effects of that disastrous night. Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez, their two most forward-thinking players, are both out of action. The Portuguese suffering damaged ligaments in his knee and the Mexican is paying for a very harsh red card with a two-game suspension.
When things click, Villa can be one of the most vibrant teams in the division. Philippe Coutinho and Jacob Ramsey have struck up a wonderful partnership at the heart of the side, and Matt Cash has become one of the Premier League’s most potent wing-backs. But there remains a lack of clarity up front, with Steven Gerrard still torn between the dynamic Ollie Watkins and the old-school Danny Ings.
Which teams will turn up at Molineux? We’ll have to see. The match kicks off at 3pm BST, Saturday 2nd April. Follow our guide on how to watch a Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.
Watch a Wolves vs Aston Villa free live stream
There’s a 7-day free trial of FuboTV available to new users, while Sling, which offers CNBC as part of a $6 per month addon, is currently offering new users a $10 discount on their first month. And as there are no long contracts with either service, if you’re not happy with them, you can cancel them at any time.
Of course, FuboTV and Sling are only available within the States, so be sure to use a VPN if you’re a US-based subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it’s reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.
Watch a Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you’ve subscribed to the relevant Wolves vs Aston Villa live stream rights holder, you won’t be able to access it when you’re outside your home country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN, which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service, you can cancel at any time within the first 30 days with no penalties at all.
How to use a VPN to watch Wolves vs Aston Villa from anywhere
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Wolves vs Aston Villa, you may wish to choose ‘US’ for Sling/FuboTV or ‘Canada’ for DAZN Canada.
If, for whatever reason, you can’t get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money-back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, and Surfshark, which offers 24-hour assistance.

BBC gets first dibs on matches played from 3pm on Saturdays, the primetime slot, in addition to commentary rights to broadcast radio coverage on Fridays, Mondays, and two Sunday slots.
You can listen to live commentary of selected games on BBC 5Live via the BBC Sport website or via Freeview, Freesat, Sky or Virgin Media.

When can you watch Match of the Day online and on iPlayer?
Match Of The Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match Of The Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?
Match Of The Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.
The show won’t be available on-demand as soon as the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match Of The Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it’s broadcast.
You can download Match Of The Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.
Match Of The Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
