An intriguing fixture, Man City. Villa have played a couple of quality sides already, and we’ll all be hoping they’ve learned from what they did right, and where they let things slip away.
Villa are back in action and looking to build on the 5-1 thumping of Norwich as Brighton visit Villa Park.
Aston Villa match thread
We know the story up to now…mistakes, bad officiating, naïveté, adaptation. They all add up to just four points and a spot in the drop zone. So, to say today’s game is a big one would be an understatement. Villa need confidence. They need three points. They need to feel like maybe the tide can turn. Me, I think it can.
Sunday afternoon, and time for Villa to visit the Emirates. While Arsenal have struggled a bit in their familiar fashion, it’s still a tough place to play. But I have to believe Villa will be thinking they can spring a bit of a surprise.
