Aston Villa face a trip to Nottingham Forest this coming Sunday in a 2 pm kick-off.
Villa head into the game 5th in the league having won four of their last five and can be backed at 5/6 to pick up the win vs Forest with bet365.
Unai Emery’s staggering record
Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has been at the club for one year and after securing a Europa Conference League place last season, looks well on course for a Europa League finish this time around.
Emery has also outdone Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola ahead of facing Forest:
- One year on from Unai Emery taking charge at Aston Villa, his side have won 22 of their 35 games under him (D5 L8). That is more wins than the most recent two title-winning managers managed at their clubs in their first 35 games – 20 for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and 16 for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
- Nottingham Forest won two of their first four Premier League games this season (L2) but have since won none of their last six (D4 L2), their longest winless run since an 11-game stretch between February and April earlier this year.
- Aston Villa are the joint-top goalscorers in the Premier League this season after 10 games (26).
Back Ollie Watkins (9 goals in 2023/24) to score anytime vs Nottingham Forest at 6/4 with bet365.
