These are dark days at Villa Park. The Claret and Blue helped found the Premiership 20 years ago, but find themselves in danger of being relegated for the first time unless they can climb out of the EPL basement. Facing the defending champs is never going to inspire much confidence, though, and while Villa put forth a decent performance yesterday against Man City, they still dropped the match 1-0. For two decades, it wasn't rocket science to keep this squad in the Premiership; now, it looks like they're headed for splashdown.
