Aston Villa look for six unbeaten matches in a row and 13 winning games on the spin when Fulham heads to Villa Park on Sunday following on from another excellent display in the Europa Conference League.
Fulham continue to miss their star man over the past few years, Alexsandar Mitrovic, as the Cottagers have only nine bagged nine times in the 11 games so far, meaning only relegation-sitting Burnley have scored fewer with eight.
Marco Silva's side also head into this one off the back of just one win in the past five Premier League games. In this period Chelsea have eased to a 2-0 win in a west London derby, although they did take a point away from Brighton & Hove Albion down on the south coast. Nevertheless, losses to Tottenham Hotspur and another to Manchester United last weekend kept Silva's men hovering just above the drop zone.
Fulham’s only victory was against Sheffield United during this period where Bobby De Cordova-Reid scored in the second half of the game. They still, however, could not register a clear sheet and have now scored 17 goals. Silva also has an EFL Cup quarter-final battle to prepare for in the forthcoming weeks after beating Ipswich Town 3-2 at Portman Road.
Villa are heading into this one off the back of defeating AZ Alkmaar 2-1 after going 1-0 down, and they have now scored six goals against the in-form Dutch giants in their two Europa Conference League group stage meetings. Diego Carlos equalised at Villa Park on Thursday, as Ollie Watkins continued his incredible form once again with another goal - he now has scored five goals in the competition from six matches.
Villa remain fifth in the table after seven wins from 11 league outings this season, and with just three losses on the board, they remain one of the best home teams right now in England. Emery's men are also the third-highest scorers this campaign after netting 26 goals, meaning only Newcastle United and Manchester City have more.
