There are two big derbies going on this weekend in the football calendar, with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal going head to head in the Premier League, and Aston Villa taking on Birmingham City in the Championship.
The latter will be hosted at Villa Park and Steve Bruce’s side head into the fixture in perfect form.
The team are on a six-game winning run in the second tier, and in that time they have scored 14 goals and conceded just three times.
As it stands, the Villans are third in the table and could potentially move into the automatic promotion places as they sit just one point behind second-placed Derby County.
Birmingham travel to their enemies’ stadium on Sunday with the need for points as they are four above the relegation zone.
The Blues are in relatively positive form, though, as the team have picked up wins in their last two matches.
On Villa’s official Twitter page, the club posted a graphic showing the clubs’ current form, and fans made an interesting point.

On paper we should win by a country mile. Thing is, football isn't played on paper! 3-2.
