Aston Villa 11/8 to see past fellow strugglers Sunderland this afternoon
Competition: Premier League
Market: Aston Villa to win against Sunderland
Odds: 11/8 @ Ladbrokes
Aston Villa host Sunderland this afternoon, which will be a difficult meeting for the Midlands outfit considering the form of the Black Cats on the road. Gus Poyet’s side have done well away from home of late, picking up eight points from their last four games on their travels. Villa have won one and drawn two of their last three home games, so today’s clash should be competitive.
After suffering defeats to the likes of West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City in recent weeks, Aston Villa need a result far more urgently than Sunderland. They have a good past record against the North-East outfit too, taking four points from their two league meetings last season, without conceding a single goal.
But this afternoon’s fixture could be closer, given the form of the Black Cats ahead of the game. Nevertheless, Aston Villa have taken all three points against every bottom-half side they’ve face on home soil this season, and Ladbrokes are backing them with odd of 11/8 to win against Sunderland as result.
