Aston Villa is close to the top of the Premier League rankings


On October 19, the 1-0 win over Leicester helped Aston Villa to 2nd place in the Premier rankings League, just 1 point behind leading team Everton.

Under the leadership of coach Dean Smith, Aston Villa is becoming a phenomenon in the Premier League this season. As a guest at King Power field in the fifth round, the West Midlands team continued to extend the sublimation series with a 1-0 victory thanks to a goal by rookie Ross Barkley.

Barkley`s late goal helped Aston Villa win over Leicester

This is Barkley`s second time playing for Aston Villa. In the previous game, he also contributed a goal to help the home team beat defending champions Liverpool 7-2. The Englishman only needed two games to score two goals for Aston Villa. Meanwhile, it takes 42 games to have a similar record at Chelsea.

Against Leicester, Aston Villa played fair with 49% of the ball control time, launching 395 passes and 10 shots, while Leicester launched 408 passes and 11 shots.

With this result, Aston Villa became the only Premier League team to have a winning record. Coach Smith and his football team have defeated Sheffield United, Fulham, Liverpool and Leicester respectively. They are only 1 point behind the top team Everton and less than 1 match because the Premier League opening round match with Man City has not yet been held.

Jack Grealish is the inspiration behind the Aston Villa attack

According to the famous football betting website W88, the last time Aston Villa won their opening four games was the 1930/31 season, when the club finished second at the end of the season.

In Europe`s top five national championships, only Aston Villa and AC Milan have done this. On October 18, the San Siro team beat Inter Milan 2-1 in the derby thanks to a double from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to take the lead in Serie A.

Premier League rankings up to the fifth round

The 7-2 defeat of Liverpool against Aston Villa

Just a few hours after Liverpool’s 6-1 loss, this football team had a 7-2 defeat in the fourth round of the Premier League. There are no excuses for Liverpool after the 2-7 defeat against Aston Villa on October 5, but dissecting and interpreting this shocking result is essential.

What makes the former champion lose 5 goals separately after winning all 3 rounds? Is this a failure opening the downward cycle or just a painful slide in the journey of The Kop?

After winning 3 points in the first three rounds, Liverpool entered the match against Aston Villa with the ambition to win. However, the team lacked many important members such as goalkeeper Alisson due to injuries, Thiago, and Sadio Mane due to coronavirus infections. The absence of important strikers due to injury and a decline in all important factors are the main reasons for Liverpool’s loss in the fourth round of the Premier League.

The absence of Van Dijk

According to ESPN data, Van Dijk played 74 Premier League matches, which is 6,665 minutes without a break for coach Klopp`s team. During that time, Liverpool lost only 5 matches in the Premier League. They impressively won the Premier League last season. Liverpool also won the Champions League just over a year after Van Dijk arrived at the club.

The talented midfielder made Liverpool spend £75 million on the 2018 winter transfer window. Before Van Dijk arrived, Liverpool was mainly focused on attack and lacked stability in the defense, which made it hard for this team to get the titles. Van Dijk arrived and made it almost invincible to defeat Liverpool.

The fact that Van Dijk may not be able to play for the rest of the season was the biggest loss for Liverpool in the Klopp era. When Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona, the Anfield team did not lose that much.


The Premier League continues to be more attractive when the big guys like Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, or Man Utd all have problems that led to negative results. Meanwhile, with the participation of James Rodriguez, Everton became the phenomenon of the Premier League with first place on the rankings. Aston Villa, Leicester, West Ham, or Leeds United are the strong teams that are worth watching this season.
