Also in their last six league outings, they have faced Liverpool, Wolves and Man City (all top-five sides heading into the weekend). It has left Villa with a W1 D1 L4 record in their last six games. But they have been consistent with their goal-scoring at least and the Villains have hit the back of the net in all but one of their last eight.
