Who are Aston Villa? Everything you need to know
Formed in 1874, Aston Villa is an English football club based in the city of Birmingham. Playing at Villa Park since 1897, the Claret & Blue Army have a long and successful history that distinguishes them as one of the biggest football teams in England!
Aston Villa hold the honour of being one of a small number of English clubs to have won a European Trophy, something they achieved back in the 1981-82 season. They’ve also won 7 league titles, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, and 1 European Super Cup.
Between 1992 and 2016, Aston Villa played in the English Premier League, the highest level in the English football pyramid. However, in 2016, they were relegated, and spent 3 years in the Championship before being promoted back to the Premier League in 2019.
Some notable players who’ve played at Villa over the years include Andy Gray, Stiliyan Petrov, and Jack Grealish.
Up to 2019, Aston Villa held the record for having provided the English national team with the most internationals, with 74 Villa players debuting for the Three Lions since the club's inception in 1874.
Villa’s biggest rivals are their city neighbours, Birmingham City. In 128 games, Villa have won 57 times against them, with their first victory coming way back in 1887.

Aston Villa injury concerns and suspended players - who’s out
The last thing any team wants is for their players to be injured or suspended. If Villa’s number nine is out for months with an injury, or their best centre back is suspended after being sent off, it’s going to have an effect on their next performance.
Injuries and suspensions can have a huge impact on Aston Villa’s betting odds, and with the more player’s missing through injury or suspension, the less likely it is that Villa will win their next match comfortably.
Because of the huge impact injuries and suspensions can have on Aston Villa betting odds, as well as the Villa’s performances as a whole, we believe it’s super important that we provide you with up-to-date news and analysis on them all.
Our experts spend hours poring over Aston Villa news so that they’re completely up-to-date with everything that’s happening in and around the club, and that means knowing which players are injured and suspended.
