Villa Keep Flattering To Deceive
It may have had been a three game month but Aston Villa, who had winnable fixtures this month, could only manage one win out of three. The month started off very poorly with a weak 2-1 loss against Hull City.
Jack Grealish set Villa off to a flying start with a fantastic solo effort on the 13th minute, but after that the Villa youngsters, who were without captain Ron Vlaar faultered really badly in this match and Abel Hernandez punished Villa in the second with a brace to give Hull just there second victory of the campaign.
As Villa so often do they followed a poor performance with a absolute fantastic performance, but most of in particular was Ruben Garcia. The attacking midfielder has done amazingly well this season when given the chance and he was absolutely majestic against Wigan and scored two goals and caused on of the own goals in a 4-1 victory. This has been Aston Villa's problem all season and last season was the inconsistencies. They seem to be more than a match for the big teams but struggle against the sides that are scrapping for the relegation spots.
They then produced a gutsy display against a very physical Stoke side, but what most people do not know is that Villa are the best tackling side in the Premier League but that was not enough for Villa and Jordan Ayew and Dimitar Bertatov produced the goods to give stoke a great victory and they are flying high in forth place.
It is worth noting that when Jack Grealish has scored this season, Villa have lost every match.
The Premier League is now sponsored by EE, this is because Barclays had to pull out due to spendning too much money on bonus's.
Arsenal and Everton are leading the way still. They have both scored 23 goals, are level on points but Arsenal have let less in so lead on goal difference. Stoke are just behind Chelsea in forth place with Man City and Man Utd just behind them.
Aston Villa are 11th but this league is very tight and are just five points off forth place but they have scored loads of goals, but let loads in too. Villa have scored 31 goals already this season but have conceded 26 goals and that has to change because they have so much potential.
Forest, Leicester and Southampton are still in the bottom three and look hapless to be honest.
Villa Player Of The Month
Ruben Garcia is such a quality player and for the amount of money Villa spent on him, he is going to be a steal. He looks assured on the ball, left foot or right foot, it doesn't matter to him and his skill is also top notch too. He knows how to score too so is a worthy winner.
