Having miraculously staved off relegation at the end of 2019/20, Aston Villa have been enjoying some excellent Premier League form in recent weeks. League wins over Sheffield United (1-0) and Fulham (0-3) in their opening two matches were followed by a sublime 7-2 hammering of Premier League champions Liverpool at Villa Park in their final outing before the international break.

These excellent results have resulted in the bookmakers substantially lengthening the odds on Aston Villa being relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season, the Midlands club now as long as 13/1 for the drop having been just 7/4 at the start of the campaign.

Aston Villa have managed to do some inspired business in the summer transfer market, the latest addition to the squad being Ross Barkley who has arrived on loan from Chelsea. The 26-year-old will be a boost to Villa’s midfield and will add to their threat going forward.

Other shrewd signings include the likes of Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins, all of whom have played a positive part in Villa’s excellent start to the Premier League campaign.

Dean Smith’s men have also had their odds slashed for a finish in the Premier League top ten, the bookies now going as low as 5/4 that they finish in the top-half of the Premier League table. Indeed some firms go as low as 17/1 that they even manage to haul themselves into the top four at the close of the campaign.
