Aston Villa Odds

The Villans blazed their way back into the top tier of English football following a three-year absence. An impressive run in the Championship during the 2018/19 campaign saw Aston Villa earn their spot in the Premier League, whereas the financial backing provided by their new owners from Egypt and United States will have made a clear statement of intent.

Namely, Aston Villa are here to stay and 1.50 betting odds suggest they could succeed in their intention. Nevertheless, the odds of 2.63 make them the third-biggest favourites to suffer a swift relegation back to the Championship.

Aston Villa Key Players

Jack Graelish has had a brilliant season in the Championship. Aston Villa struggled with fitness at the opening stages of the last season but hit the ground running and led the Villans to ten wins in a row. The midfielder showed great dedication and loyalty to his boyhood club, turning down interest from Tottenham in the summer of 2018. With six goals and seven assists to his name, Jack Graelish might not have been the most productive man in the squad, but his influence goes well beyond the numbers.

Alongside the Englishman, the Republic of Ireland international Hourihane was also the key man last season. He bagged eight goals and 11 assists in 35 league starts. Heading into the 2019/20, all eyes will, however, be on the likes of Tyrone Mings, Anwar El Ghazi, Jota or Trezeguet, all of whom joined the club in the summer.

Aston Villa Rivalry

The Second City Derby is a famous match in English football. It features fierce clashes between two arch-enemies, Aston Villa and Birmingham City. However, Villa’s biggest rivals have historically been West Bromwich Albion. As the two clubs from West Midlands, they share local rivalry on a more intensified level. With their stadiums literally miles apart, these two clubs went head-to-head in no less than three FA Cup finals during the 19th century.

In addition to the two aforementioned clubs, Aston Villa also vies heated contests with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Consequently, this match will be the only one Aston Villa supporters will be able to enjoy this season in the Premier League with both Birmingham and WBA competing in lower ranks of English football.

Aston Villa History

Formed by members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel in 1874, Aston Villa wasted no time in establishing itself as the leading side in the Midlands. Only six years after their birth, the Villans lifted their first piece of silverware, winning the Birmingham Senior Cup.

The club’s rich history saw Villans emerge as one of the notable sides both in England and internationally. Aston Villa have seven First Division titles in their trophy cabinet, two Second Division titles and one from the Third Division. Furthermore, the Villans lifted the FA Cup trophy on seven different occasions. On top of it, they won 5 League Cup titles and one Charity Shield. Looking at the club from a European perspective, Aston Villa are proud winners of the European Cup (1981/82), European Super Cup (1982) and Intertoto Cup (2001).

Interestingly, the end of 2018/19 campaign marked Aston Villa’s 105th season in the top tier of English football, which is the second-best result in the country.
