Setting the Table: Recovering from a Beatdown, Looking to Arsenal

Alex Livesey

Aston Villa's 5-0 defeat at Manchester City is one that I imagine we all want to quickly forget. We recap the week that was and look ahead to the week that will be.

Good lord. 5-0. Is everyone okay if we make this short and sweet today? Yes? Alright, let's get on with it.

The Week That Was

Match Notes

Manchester City 5-0 Aston Villa (EPL)
David Silva (43'), Sergio Agüero (54' Pen., 67'), Carlos Tévez (65', 74')

  • Once again, I did not get to see the match. My joke over the weekend has been that I was busy taking a 5-hour exam in which I typed 30 pages and somehow I feel that I did better than anyone who had to watch the match.
  • Usually, when I miss a match, I try and at least watch an extended highlights package. It's not happening this week, sorry. I don't hate myself that much. Let's all just forget this happened and move on to this weekend's victory over Arsenal, okay?

Looking Ahead

  • We get Arsenal at Villa Park this weekend. Of the three hell matches, it's probably the easiest (relative!) and most winnable. Villa really would do well to get a point here.
  • After that things get a bit easier, and we will likely see Villa snag a few more points. Reading, Queens Park Rangers, and Stoke City all in a row. Could be worse. Could be November.
