Historically, the encounters with Villa don’t lead to many goals with just 7 scored in the last 5 matches. But the way both sides have been going this year it’d be a surprise if we didn’t see a few flying in this time.
Albion’s 20 games have yielded 70 goals meaning an average of bang on 3.5 goals per game, with Villa almost identical with 69 goals scored in their 20 matches.
After handing both Derby and Middlesbrough 3-0 defeats – both away from home – Villa will be up for the challenge and Albion will need to be right on it from the first whistle to the last.
