Aston Villa fans have every right to feel confident at the moment as the club have suffered defeat just once in their last eight Championship matches.
As it stands, Steve Bruce’s side are third in the table, four points adrift of the two automatic promotion places.
Their most recent outing was a frantic one as they came from behind twice to earn a 4-2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on away soil.
The club have been hit with some injury problems in recent weeks, with Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah among those on the treatment table.
On Tuesday evening, the Midlands outfit will take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, and they have had plenty of preparation having had last weekend’s match against Queens Park Rangers called off due to the snowy weather.
Villa are overwhelming favourites to nab all three points given that the Black Cats are rooted to the bottom of the table having won just five of their 35 league fixtures.
Ahead of the contest, Villans have been tweeting their predictions.
Nothing less than 3 points

I think that they are All must win games until the end of season.

Should be a pushover – but it won’t be. Sunderland fighting for lives. But we can do it. Especially with Albert and hopefully Jack back.

Get out the traps, goal in first 20 min and it SHOULD be 3 points. Villa 2-0 put https://t.co/zXyoCNnxEJ their place from the off or this could be awkward

Absolutely nothing less than a win is acceptable.
