    Former Chelsea’ Manager Roberto Di Matteo sacked by Aston Villa

    Roberto Di Matteo has been officially sacked by Aston Villa after a nightmare start to their first season in the Championship.

    The former Chelsea and Schalke boss signed a two-year deal in the summer and was tasked with guiding the Villans back to the top flight of English football in that time.

    However, after a nightmare start that sees Villa lying in 19th place, Di Matteo has been relieved of his duties by Aston Villa owner Dr Tony Xia.

    Xia’s patience was tested […]

    Aston Villa will not offer Stiliyan Petrov new contract – Di Matteo

    Stiliyan Petrov will not be offered a playing contract at Aston Villa despite attempting to make his comeback.

    The Bulgarian midfielder has been training with Villa this summer after battling back from leukaemia, following his diagnosis in 2012.

    Petrov initially retired from playing three years ago but was invited on Villa’s preseason trip to Austria with a view to impressing first-team coaches, although the club have now confirmed he will not make a return to on-field action.

    Boss Roberto Di Matteo has, however, […]

    Liverpool increased the pressure on Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert by beating his struggling side to secure a third away league win in succession.

    The threat of a pre-match protest by Villa fans did not materialise but the home side went behind when Fabio Borini prodded in a Jordan Henderson cross.

    Christian Benteke had a chance to level but his powerful strike was saved.

    Liverpool survived a number of other scares before Rickie Lambert […]

    Prospective Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew was in attendance to watch the London club claim a goalless draw in a turgid encounter at Aston Villa.

    There was precious little excitement during 90 largely chanceless minutes at Villa Park. Villa created more opportunities, with Christian Benteke and Alan Hutton both testing Julian Speroni with shots.

    Palace had the clearest opening, but Yannick Bolasie struck the crossbar after breaking past the home defence.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick gave Swansea a hard-earned win over Aston Villa at a soaking Liberty Stadium.

    Sigurdsson’s dipping effort from the edge of the area came in a first half dominated by the hosts.

    Villa were the more dominant after the break as the torrential rain which blighted the first half eased. Andreas Weimann was wasteful, but the best chance – an injury-time header from Christian Benteke – was saved superbly by Lukasz […]

    Premier League Aston Villa 1-1 draw with Man Utd

     

    Ten-man Aston Villa ended Manchester United’s six-game winning run with a hard-earned draw at Villa Park.

    United dominated possession but fell behind to Christian Benteke’s superb left-foot strike before Radamel Falcao headed them level after the break.

    Gabriel Agbonlahor was dismissed for a heavy tackle on Ashley Young, prompting United pressure and Michael Carrick’s header was cleared off the line. They could not force a winner and sit seven points behind leaders Chelsea.

    The Blues could extend that lead if they win their […]

    West Brom midfielder Craig Gardner scored against former club Aston Villa to end the Baggies’ run of five Premier League matches without a win.

    Gardner, 28, capitalised on a scramble inside the area and fired through a crowd of bodies after Stephane Sessegnon’s shot had been blocked.

    Villa had earlier been reduced to 10 men after Kieran Richardson was sent off for a late tackle on Sessegnon. Christian Benteke’s close-range shot late on was the best Villa could offer. This week Villa […]

    Alan Hutton’s first goal helps Aston Villa to secure back-to-back Premier League wins for the club.

    Leonardo Ulloa stabbed the Foxes ahead after Villa keeper Brad Guzan spilled Riyad Mahrez’s deflected shot. Ciaran Clark headed Villa level from Ashley Westwood’s free-kick before the latter went off injured. Hutton netted after Christian Benteke’s chipped pass, before Paul Konchesky was sent off for Leicester.

    City, four points from safety, will feel aggrieved they finished with 10 men after former Liverpool defender Konchesky’s clash with […]
