Since the three-all draw against QPR, it's been two wins in a row for Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa. The first was at White Hart Lane against his former club Tottenham Hotspur, and the second was at Wembley Stadium against Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Villa are away from home again this week, but will travel north to Manchester rather than south to London. They'll take on another team that will be playing in Europe next year in Manchester City, in search of a third straight victory.
