Aston Villa are hoping to avoid defeat for the first time in four Premier League games this season ahead of their trip to face fellow ex-European champions Nottingham Forest on Monday night. Villa are presently on a three-match unbeaten run after avoiding defeat against teams such as Manchester City, Southampton and Leeds United.
VILLA SECURE FIRST LEAGUE WIN
Aston Villa have recorded their first win of the new Premier League season following the 2-1 victory over Everton at home. The former European champions were able to record their first win of the season at the second time of asking on the back of the 2-0 loss to newly promoted team Bournemouth in their opener.
STEVEN GERRARD EYEING BURNLEY STARLET NATHAN COLLINS
Aston Villa are reportedly keen on signing Burnley defender Nathan Collins this summer, although they are not alone in expressing an interest. The Clarets may have been relegated from the Premier League last season but Collins was one of his side’s better performers throughout the campaign. The 21-year-old filled in impressively when the likes of James Tarkowski and Ben Mee were missing, making 19 appearances in the league in total and ranking as the club’s fourth best player.
With Burnley preparing for Championship football in 2022/23, it could be that Collins remains in the top flight moving forward.According to talkSPORT, Villa are ‘monitoring’ the centre-back’s situation, with his current deal at Turf Moor not expiring until the summer of 2025. New Burnley boss Vincent Kompany wants to build his defence around Collins, following the departure of Tarkowski and Mee, but he could find it hard to keep him, with Leeds United and Wolves also credited with interest.

WILL CITY GO TROPHYLESS THIS SEASON
The question of whether Premier League holders Manchester City will win a trophy this season or not would be answered at the end of their home game with Aston Villa on the last day of the Premier League this season. It’s surprising that Manchester City have not won a trophy at this stage of the season. They are left with just one opportunity to win a trophy this season and that’s the Premier League title.
Manchester City will retain their Premier League title if they beat Aston Villa at home on Sunday irrespective of what happens in the other game between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Manchester City and Liverpool are in a keenly contested Premier League battle with a solitary point separating the two teams. To this effect, there’s no margin for error when Manchester City play hosts to Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium later this weekend. Only an home win over the Steven Gerrard-led Aston Villa side will ensure that Manchester City don’t have to watch their backs to check what the outcome of the Liverpool game will be.

WHY IS GREALISH STRUGGLING AT MANCHESTER CITY?
Manchester City and England international attacking midfielder Jack Grealish is not a player of his former self at the Etihad Stadium and any football fan does not need to be told. Following several successful years as an Aston Villa player, he decided that it was time to move on to a bigger club. He started attracting interest from the two Manchester clubs in the English Premier League but United were the first side to have registered concrete interest in acquiring his services. However, the Red Devils were not willing to pay up the £100 million that Villa were demanding to let go of their prized asset. United’s reluctance to pay the hefty amount meant that their neighboring rivals, City, would be joining the party.

ASTON VILLA EYEING UNITED STAR AHEAD OF JANUARY MOVE
Aston Villa are said to be interested in signing Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo in the January winter transfer window as they look to bolster their attacking options in the coming months. However, they are only expected to table an offer that will see them sign the player on loan instead of a permanent transfer, with United also not ready to let the player leave the club on a permanent basis. Villa had themselves a very exciting transfer window this summer and signed a couple of players, including young ce tram defender Axel Tuanzebe from United in the summer after the player signed a new contract extension before sealing the loan switch to Villa Park.
However, it looks like Villa manager Dean Smith wants to have more than one Manchester United star at the club and has now asked the club’s board to go all out and try to sign Diallo in the summer. Villa already have a lot of attacking options at their disposal but after making a huge statement with the number of players they signed in the summer, they want to follow up on that as they look to secure a top-half finish in the league come the end of the season.

ASTON VILLA SET TO RETURN WITH THIRD BID FOR ARSENAL STAR
Aston Villa look determined to sign Arsenal star Emile Smith-Rowe and are set to return with a third bid for the player in less than two weeks after having their opening two bids turned down by the Gunners.

Smith-Rowe is also not making matters any easier for Arsenal and has been reluctant to put pen to paper on a new deal recently, giving the Villans the green light to table another official bid for him in the coming days.
