vs Watford (A), Apr 30
Everyone knows it has been a disastrous season for Aston Villa, which has been further compounded by 10 straight Premier League defeats – the loss to Manchester United in that run condemned the club to Championship football next term.
Next up is a trip to Watford, and judging by Villa’s recent performances, it is hard to see them picking up a single point in their last three games.
Shoot Says: 2-0 loss
vs Newcastle United (H), May 7
However, Eric Black’s side do have a chance to have a say on who will go down with them when they host Newcastle in the penultimate fixture of the season.
The Magpies will know that they will have to pick up three points at Villa Park to give themselves any chance of staying up, but again they should have too much for a team bereft of any confidence.
Shoot Says: 2-1 loss
vs Arsenal (A), May 15
Villa fans wouldn’t have wanted this terrible season to end with a trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal, but that is how it is panned out.
With the Gunners still hoping to finish above Spurs and Manchester City in the table, it could be a long afternoon for the team from the Midlands.
Shoot Says: 4-0 loss
League Position: 20th
Overall Points: 16
