Aston Villa picked up their fourth point of the new Premier League campaign following a goalless draw with West Ham United on Monday night. The Midland outfit were presented with a huge advantage in the last 23 minutes of the game after the visitors’ left-back Arthur Masuaku was sent off for a second bookable offence. Villa couldn’t make the most of it, though, and will now hope to do better when they visit Arsenal this weekend. Despite what was an interesting game, most of the…

Aston Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings was called up to the last England squad by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate after his impressive performances for the Midlands outfit over the last year. The 26-year-old arrived at Villa Park on a season-long loan from Bournemouth last summer, and he helped them to Premier League promotion at the end of the campaign, earning a permanent move that cost the club £20 million. England won both of their Euros 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo, and while…

According to The Athletic, Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry told Jack Grealish in training this week that his driving runs from midfield are as good as he has ever seen from an Englishman.

Aston Villa star midfielder Jack Grealish hasn’t hit the ground running in the Premier League as he would have wished, but he has shown flashes of what he is capable of doing and will hope he can impress Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.

Aston Villa were denied a point in their 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday as Henri Lansbury’s late equalizer was struck off after referee Kevin Friend claimed Jack Grealish had dived. The official’s decision to book the Villa captain for simulation after he had clearly been impeded by Gary Cahill irked the visitors, and VAR couldn’t interfere as despite reviewing the potential penalty situation, it was unable to check the goal because the whistle went before the ball went into the net….
