December really hasn’t been too bad. Three wins, two losses. That’s the sort of play that has put Aston Villa in a position to vie for a playoff position soon. And it gives us a pretty fun opportunity: the chance to avenge one of those two losses. Wayyyyyy back when, on December 3, Aston Villa traveled to Leeds and lost 2-0. It wasn’t good. Since then, both teams have won three matches and lost one.
So we’re right back where we were then. Win this match and it’s as if December didn’t happen for Aston Villa and Leeds United relative to one another. Lose this match and... it stinks. So let’s do the winning thing, okay?
