Aston Villa are (at the time of writing) the bookies’ favourites to be relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season. And looking at their past few campaigns in which they’ve finish in a disappointing 17th, 15th, and 15th… it’s hard not to see it coming.
However, strangely, the Midlands club is one of the few teams that have never been relegated from the Premier League in its current format, with their last time spent in the lower division back in the 1987-1988 campaign.
This is a team that has won the English top flight seven times in their history (yes more than Chelsea) and one European Cup (yes more than ARSENAL), but in the last few years have lost their way and are real contenders for the drop.
And the club have acted quick in an attempt to fix the situation by replacing manager Tim Sherwood with Remi Garde, but some players may need to be axed in order to truly reinvigorate the squad for the second half of the season.
Here are FIVE PLAYERS ASTON VILLA SHOULD AXE THIS JANUARY!
