Did Aston Villa’s Europa Dreams Get Brexited by Wolves?

Villa’s Europa Task Gets Harder

After a 10-game unbeaten run fuelled Aston Villa’s Europa League contention potential, the reality of their difficult finish to the season was always going to bite at some point. With Spurs, Liverpool and Brighton to come, the three teams immediately above them in the Premier League table, things don’t get any easier for Unai Emery’s men.

Considering Villa’s inferior goal difference to the the teams above them, a point would have been useful, especially when it comes to Spurs. If Villa were to beat Spurs this weekend, it would now leave them level on points, with harder games to play in terms of making up the goal difference. That extra point would have left Villa just needing to match Spurs for the rest of the season, if they took three points off them at Villa Park.

So now thanks to Wolves, Villa need some serious favours from elsewhere, even if they collect a decent points haul from their remaining three games.

In the latest My Old Man Said podcast, we look back at the 1-0 loss away to Wolves and contemplate how the rest of the season will play out for Villa, while catching up on the latest Villa news, Three Points, Media Muppets and Emery’s Clipboard.
