And breath. Villa escaped a transfer window unharmed, and what’s more - they’ll be starting their home campaign of the 18/19 season with three points already in the bag.

Villa welcome Wigan Athletic to Villa Park today, in their first home match of the season.With a vibrant atmosphere expected at Villa Park, and positivity abound, it honestly doesn’t get much better than this.

Another win, however, would be nice.

We kept Jack: Yep, Villa stood tall in the face of Tottenham and the pull of London to keep their star player. Feels good man.

Injuries + Suspensions

Aston Villa will miss Ritchie De Laet to suspension for a couple of games after he picked up a major ban during his time in Belgium last season. Keinan Davis is a doubt, while Scott Hogan is out. Mile Jedinak may not make the game, we’ll see.

Hull seem to have no major worries when it comes to this, which is some small relief for those lost.
