It’s crunch time for Aston Villa. Either they start winning games against teams like West Brom at home, or the Clarets will get relegated to the Championship.
Villa have failed to win a game since the recent appointment of Tim Sherwood as their new manager.
Currently without a win in 12 matches, Villa will be desperate for three points when they face local neighbours WBA on Tuesday.
Looking at the form guide, surely the only way is up for Aston Villa, who currently occupy 19th place in the division. Villa have only scored 13 goals all season.
By contrast, Tony Pulis’ West Brom are unbeaten in four in the league, winning two and drawing two, and are eight points clear of the relegation places.
