Brentford vs Aston Villa: Top-Six Test

When it comes to numbers, Villa could win out and still be overcome in the improbable race for Europe. Villa sit sixth, but Brighton obviously have two games in hand and are just one point behind. So, all Villa can do is go out one match at a time and claw for every point. And it’s a very interesting run-in.

Is This Really Aston Villa?

Villans are buzzing as the club climb into 6th for at least a moment. We may not be throwing around the M-word just yet, but it’s getting hard to keep it in the bottle. What a far cry from Gerrard’s disastrous and thankfully brief tenure at the helm.
