Blackburn Rovers v Aston Villa

Sunday’s opening fixture features Blackburn against Aston Villa. Blackburn is favored to win. Last weekend saw Blackburn concede four goals as they were beaten 4-2 by Spurs, but before that they had beaten Wigan and Newcastle to move themselves from the verge of the relegation zone to mid table.

Prior to those two wins they had collected just a single point from the previous four games, however the three losses all came on the road. This game is at home and Blackburn have only been beaten by Arsenal and Chelsea at Ewood Park this season.

Villa wander into this game unbeaten in four matches having drawn with Birmingham, Fulham and Manchester United as well as beating Blackpool. After failing to score for almost 300 minutes of football, Villa have found their scoring boots in the last three matches and they have scored six times in those games. Their away form is pretty poor and they have lost four of their six matches on the road this season. A win against Wolves and a draw at Fulham is all they have to show for their away endeavours so far.

These two sides played each other five times in 2010. Villa have won four of these games including this and last season’s third round Carling Cup matches and both legs of the FA Cup Semi Final last season.
