With Manchester City and Manchester United contesting the FA Cup final, and both basically being guaranteed European football due to their league position — as well as Man Utd also winning the EFL Cup — a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League should be enough to secure a spot in the Europa League. Aston Villa are currently the team occupying that spot and they’re in very good form, looking unlikely to drop out of the race for Europa League football.

No one could have expected this earlier in the season as Villa were struggling under Steven Gerrard, looking to be among the relegation candidates, and even after Unai Emery took charge there were still signs of a mid-table finish being a certainty. After losing three games in a row at the start of February, Villa have since gone on a nine-match unbeaten streak which has included seven wins, lifting them up to sixth, just two points behind fifth-placed Tottenham. However, it is also worth noting that both Liverpool and Brighton have games in hand over Villa and would overtake Emery’s side if they were to win those.

Not too long ago, Fulham will have counted themselves among the European hopefuls but a poor run of form has seen them slip slightly to mid-table mediocrity; there is still a chance, but it’s a long shot. With seventh likely to hold the Europa Conference League qualification spot, Fulham are just five points behind Liverpool with seven games left to play, but there is Brighton between them who have two matches in hand on both sides.

Fulham’s fall came with a four-game losing streak that started in March with a 3-2 loss to Brentford, followed by a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal before the international break. While the defeat to Arsenal could be expected, and Brentford was a close game, the next two results were bad for Fulham as they lost to relegation-battling Bournemouth and West Ham. The slump as been arrested ion recent times thanks to wins over Everton and Leeds but they do still have an uphill battle.

Aston Villa vs Fulham match stats

As mentioned, Aston Villa are unbeaten in nine in the Premier League but they had to settle for a draw with Brentford last time out thanks to Douglas Luiz’s late equaliser. They have also had some problems when it comes to playing in midweek. Villa haven’t won any of their last nine midweek Premier League home games (played on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) since a 1-0 win over Arsenal in July 2020. At the same time, Fulham have won all four of their midweek Premier League games this season, one of just two teams to have a 100% record alongside Man City.

However, if Fulham are to get something from Villa Park, they will need to keep Ollie Watkins quiet. Although he failed to score against Brentford, Watkins has scored 12 goals in 17 Premier League games since the World Cup break, including three in his last two at Villa Park.
