When Aston Villa welcomes Fulham to Villa Park for Matchday 12, they’ll be trying to get over their 2-0 setback to Nottingham Forest. The Villans want to maintain their perfect home record, but Unai Emery’s team needs to prove they belong on the pitch. Conversely, the Cottagers saw a decline in performance as they split the points with Brighton and lost both of their matches against Tottenham and Manchester United.
Last Saturday, Aston Villa’s chances of qualifying for Europe took a minor hit as they lost for the third time this season. The Midlands team’s setback keeps them in 5th place in the Premier League rankings, but if they pick up the wins on Sunday, they might jump towards the Champions League places before the next international break.
With Fulham now sitting in 15th place in the rankings after dropping two of their prior three games and three of their most recent five within the Premier League, Marco Silva will be under more and more pressure. Their most recent setback came at Craven Cottage versus Man United, where they lost 1-0 in the presence of their home crowd.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, has a strong previous record in this matchup having won 3 of the last 4 Premier League games between the two teams. In contrast, Fulham has only triumphed once during their past 19 road league games against Villa, suffering losses in all of their previous 4.
Given that Villa is presently riding a club-record 12-match streak of victories in the Premier League, their home record may be the trend that is most difficult to ignore this weekend. They have won at home for the longest since October 1983, when they won 13 games in a row. This weekend, they might also win all 6 of their home games for the first time since 1932-33.
Due to injury, Jacob Ramsey and Kortney Hause are both out of the running for Aston Villa. While, defender Issa Diop is still in the rehabilitation region for Fulham.
