Remaining fixtures for Aston Villa and points estimate following win over Newcastle


Aston Villa is one of the current frontrunners in the Premier League with an impressive streak of victories that puts them in an excellent position to finish the season on a high note. Can they carry this momentum through the season’s remaining weeks?

Unai Emery’s leadership at Villa Park has been a significant success. After Steven Gerrard’s lackluster time there, the team has recorded five consecutive league wins. Now, with the last seven games coming up, the Villans can take full advantage and secure a European football spot.

Here is our take on how many points Aston Villa may collect in the remaining fixtures.

Aston Villa fixture schedule
April 22: Brentford (away) April 25: Fulham (home) April 30: Man Utd (away) May 6: Wolves (away) May 13: Tottenham (home) May 20: Liverpool (away) May 28: Brighton (home)

Brentford v Aston Villa
Next up for Emery, the Villans will visit Brentford on Saturday afternoon, which could be considered a less challenging game given the decline in the Bees’ results. Since mid-March, Thomas Frank’s side has not won in the league.

Earlier this season, Villa won a significant victory against Brentford, scoring four goals, with Danny Ings scoring twice, and both Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins scoring once. We believe this weekend, with Villa’s current form, the only outcome is a win for the team.

Prediction: Brentford 1-2 Aston Villa

Aston Villa v Fulham
At home, Villa will face a Fulham team that has exceeded expectations this season, aiming to finish in the top half of the Premier League table. However, the Cottagers may not be motivated to play for much when they meet Villa, and we see this fixture as a potential home win.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2-0 Fulham

Man United v Aston Villa
Late April will see Manchester United test Villa’s European credentials. Manchester United appears to be finishing in the top four, but we doubt they would take it easy. The Villans’ triumph over United in November was impressive, but they will be the underdogs in the upcoming game. Although we do not expect Villa to win, it is likely they will record a positive result.

Prediction: Man United 2-1 Aston Villa

Wolves v Aston Villa
Wolves are among the Premier League teams fighting to stay in the top division but seem likely to retain their position. If the Old Gold is clear from the relegation zone, the team’s intensity may reduce, and Villa may benefit in May.

In early January, Villa and Wolves drew 1-1, but this time around, Villa could be seeking more to settle local scores.

Prediction: Wolves 1-1 Aston Villa

Aston Villa v Tottenham
A crucial game in terms of Villa’s prospects for a European place will be their encounter with Tottenham. The Spurs could still be contending for a Champions League spot or could be fighting for a Europa League position. The Villans collected a valuable 2-0 victory in the season’s first half, which bodes well for their second meeting.

Prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Tottenham

Liverpool v Aston Villa
In mid-May, Villa will face Liverpool in their penultimate away match. Liverpool has struggled this season, but they have the potential to deliver a great performance. We expect a tough game for Emery’s men, and Liverpool may want to make a statement as they close out their home campaign.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Aston Villa

Aston Villa v Brighton
The final fixture of the season sees Villa face an impressive Brighton side that may be contending for a European spot. If Villa has continued their winning streak through April and May, they may be competing directly with the Seagulls for a European position at Villa Park. Roberto De Zerbi’s side has been impressive this season, making this a tremendous challenge for Villa.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2-2 Brighton

Predicted run-in points: 9/21 Predicted total points: 59
