So, things could be better. John Terry is out, Jonathan Kodjia’s injury has returned, Scott Hogan has a worrisome internal injury that is keeping him away, Mile Jedinak gave his all for Australia and will likely be unfit and Aston Villa ended their last chapter with a pretty crushing loss against Sheffield Wednesday. Yep. Things could be a lot better!
But they also could be a lot worse. Villa are away to QPR today and will bring a pretty stacked side to Loftus Road - even with their injury worries. They can still boast Chris Samba, James Chester, Birkir Bjarnason, Jack Grealish, Keinan Davis and Callum O’Hare in their ‘weak areas’ - all of which would be starters in every game for most Championship sides. Yeah, things could be a lot worse.
QPR are currently nestled in 16th place, but don’t let that fool you. A win today sees Rangers leap up and settle within two points of Aston Villa. What that means is that a loss, while not disastrous, makes life a lot harder for the Villans.
