Aston Villa v Sunderland tips – tight game on cards at Villa Park
Hard to fancy Villa or Sunderland to land the points on Sunday
December 27th, 2014
Aston Villa supporters are growing increasingly unhappy with Paul Lambert, with the Midlands side having scored 11 goals in 18 Premier League matches this term.
Every other team have scored more goals than the Villans, although a reasonably solid defence means that Aston Villa sit 13th in the table.
The team have scored just one goal in their past three matches and Sunderland arrive having landed a string of goalless draws this season which means this contest will almost certainly be a low-scoring one.
Gus Poyet had hopes that Sunderland would carry the Tyne-Wear derby victory into their match against Hull on Boxing Day although a 3-1 reverse against the Tigers means it’s back to the drawing board.
CORRECT SCORE: Villa 0 Sunderland 0
