Villa weren’t treated too badly in December - but now January arrives, with a new set of challenges. Thankfully, Villa will be bolstered by new faces, and the return of some familiar ones. Tommy Elphick and Jed Steer have returned from their loan spells at Hull City and Charlton Athletic respectively, while Lovre Kalinic joins to add to Villa’s depth in goal - much needed due to an injury to Ørjan Nyland.
Now, Villa host QPR - a team who have already turned them over during the early days of Dean Smith’s tenure as Head Coach of Aston Villa. AVFC will want to get back on track with a win, and that would bring a nice dose of revenge for Smith.
