Villa took the early lead when Albert Adomah scored from close range within the first ten minutes. Wolves responded quickly and restored parity through top scorer Diogo Jota.
After the break, Villa stepped up the intensity and two goals in five second-half minutes from James Chester and Lewis Grabban sealed the tie in their favour.
Birkir Bjarnason scored in the 85th minute to round off a memorable victory for Villa. With this result, they maintained the third spot and closed the gap with Wolves to just seven points.
Villa fans responded to his tweet and let the player know how much he is loved and respected by the fans.
You were superb. A performance full of class, skill, guts and commitment. Keep it going for 10 more matches and the rewards will be there for all of us to enjoy. #avfc
