Aston Villa failed in both cups this season - in Autumn, they lost to Chelsea in the League Cup, and last week were knocked out of the FA Cup by their current visitors. But the Lions have been doing well in the Premier League so far.
Steven Gerard's men lack consistency and could use more bench depth, but they managed 22 points from seven victories and a draw. After 19 rounds of games, the Villans are in 14th place in the table, only three points behind the top-10.
In the last five matches, the Birmingham side recorded two victories - over Leicester (2:1) and Norwich (2:0), but they also suffered two defeats. In the first match of 2022, they lost to Brentford (1:2) away.
