However, Leeds have taken 11 points from their past six Premier League away games against Villa, with their only defeat during that run coming in February 2004. Aston VillaVilla are winless in three competitive home fixtures since a 3-1 Premier League victory versus Manchester United in Unai Emery's first match in charge. A win or draw on Friday would ensure they surpass last season's tally of 22 points at the halfway stage. Aston Villa have scored 13 goals in seven league games since Steven Gerrard was sacked as head coach, having only managed seven goals in 11 top-flight fixtures under him this season.
I know Unai Emery made lots of changes but that defeat really takes the shine off what had been a decent start for him as manager. Leeds were lucky not to go the same way thanks to a late fightback against Cardiff, and Jesse Marsch was very critical of his players afterwards. Both teams will be looking for a reaction and I am very tempted to go with a draw. I am going to say Villa will edge it, though, because I am still not sure Leeds can hurt teams no matter how hard they try.
