Premier League Specials: Aston Villa into 15/2 to go full season unbeaten at home

Despite dropping points against Sheffield United, Aston Villa are now unbeaten in 16 Premier League home matches and we’ve got them priced at 15/2 to go the whole campaign unbeaten at Villa Park.

Friday's stalemate with the Blades was the first time Unai Emery's men had failed to win a home league match since March, a phenomenal run when you consider what the Spaniard inherited upon his appointment in October 2022.

Supporters have been dreaming of a potential title race after an astonishing week in which they defeated Manchester City and Arsenal in the space of three days at Villa Park.

What made both of those victories all the more impressive was the manner in which they triumphed, with the hosts restricting Man City to just two shots in the contest - the fewest of Pep Guardiola's reign so far - while registering 23 efforts of their own.

The Villans started the campaign with a humbling 5-1 defeat to Newcastle, clearly impacted by the serious injury to Tyrone Mings in the first half, but responded by winning five of their next six, including a 4-0 win over Everton and a 6-1 win over Brighton.

There was a naivety in their 3-0 loss at Anfield to Liverpool and the draw at Wolves felt like a missed opportunity, but Emery has done an excellent job of making Villa Park into something of a fortress.

The Holte End faithful are now turning up on a weekend expecting to win and fearing no one; nor should they. 

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: "Well, there goes my theory of Villa’s home form coinciding with them yet to play a quality side at Villa Park!

"Unai Emery has transformed the football club from a sleeping giant to, dare I say it, possible title challengers - no club will be will be looking forward to travelling to Villa Park right now.

"If the Lions can continue to overcome those obstacles then punters with 100/1 and 80/1 on them remaining unbeaten at home in the Premier League will start to believe that the good times really are returning to Villa Park."

For those that are dreaming, you have to go back to 1993 - the first year of the Premier League - for the last time Villa finished in the top two in England's top flight.
