Aston Villa will visit the City Ground on Sunday afternoon to take on Nottingham Forest in an attempt to continue their Champions League charge. Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa were formerly separated by just a few points, but their seasons have taken different turns since then. Villa’s stellar play, which has seen them grab 16 of the last 18 points available, has put them in the running for Europe. After losing 2-1 to Leeds throughout the week, Forest has now gone 8 games without a win.
Even though Steve Cooper’s team easily approved for the Premier League the previous season, Nottingham Forest has once again found it difficult to establish any sort of consistency. The former Swansea manager may be under some pressure again after he was last seen turning in yet another unsettling performance as they lost 3-0 on the road at Liverpool. Forest has not won in any of its past 6 Premier League games since suffering an iconic collapse at home over top-flight returners Luton on October 21st. Instead, they had to make do for a 2-2 draw at the City Ground.
Regarding the visitors, Aston Villa is riding a tremendous wave of confidence after making actual history this past season when they secured a Europa Conference League entry. Unai Emery’s team has been receiving praise lately. They were last seen turning on a thunderous display as they easily defeated Luton 3-1 at home. The former Arsenal manager says that the team’s spirits are at an all-time high and that they intend to mount a true Champions League challenge this time around. Emery’s team, who began this weekend’s games one point outside of the top 4, has amassed 16 points from the last 6 matches in all competitions. Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia, who are both currently recovering from long-term knee problems, will not accompany Aston Villa when they visit the City Ground on Sunday afternoon.
