BIRMINGHAM: Leander Dendoncker continues to bring the Wolves to the Champions League next season and at the same time keeps Aston Villa in the relegation zone.
The Belgian scored midway through the second half to help the Wolves secure a 1-0 victory at Villa Park, closing the gap to fourth.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have now jumped to fifth in the league, ahead of Manchester United and two points behind Chelsea after three consecutive victories.
They have maintained a 100 percent winning record since the league resumed and recorded seven games unbeaten in eight of their elite games.
Villa, meanwhile, have not won any victories since January and remain in the relegation zone through a network difference.
They even played more than one match against Bournemouth, West Ham and Watford.
