Falling the ability of Aston Villa to lead the Premier League Standings 

The Premier League is experiencing a very surprising season and the rankings are changing round by round, even every day of the competition. Currently, Leicester are leading with 18 points but they are only 1 win away from 6th place. Therefore, there is no guarantee that Brendan Rodgers teachers and students will continue to lead after round 9 ends.

Aston Villa has the biggest chance to lead the Premier League Standings after seven more rounds

With such unpredictable developments, the shock scenario for the Premier League when “Gift Day” – “Boxing Day” comes next is completely happening. The question is which team has the ability to lead the Premier League starting on December 26? The big guys in the Top 6 or Leicester, Southampton? No, all is not. The answer is Aston Villa. 

The reason is that the army of coach Dean Smith is fully supported by the schedule. Even with the match against Crystal Palace on December 26, Aston Villa will play 7 rounds of the Premier League and not have to meet a major player in this series. 

Back from the group break, Aston Villa faced Brighton (November 21) and then West Ham (December 1), Newcastle (December 5). The most annoying opponent they have to face is Wolves (12/12), three days later they play Burnley (December 15) and finally West Brom. These are all opponents that “fit in” with Jack Grealish and his teammates and most importantly, they will be wholeheartedly devoted to these matches when there is no schedule for another tournament. 

If you keep the same form as in the 3-0 victory over Arsenal, Dean Smith’s teachers and students can completely win 21 points in this series and rise to the top of the rankings. To block Aston Villa, the four teams above are Chelsea, Southampton, Liverpool, and Tottenham need to win 7 matches while Leicester’s number is 6.

However, the schedules of these 5 teams are not favorable. Tottenham must meet Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool in the next 4/5 rounds, so it is almost impossible for Mourinho and his teachers to win all 7 rounds, especially when they still have to play in the Europa League arena (kick on Thursday night). Likewise is the story of the remaining clubs. They must face off against each other or another strong opponent in this series.

MU – Arsenal can “bottom”?

The top half Premier League Standings is unpredictable, the bottom half is no less edge. One can completely see a team in the Big 6 group in the bottom 3 team. It is Arsenal with a very “heavy” schedule that does not have good performance.

Mikel Arteta is facing a huge challenge

Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students lost 3/4 of the last Premier League match and in the near future, they have to face all “bony” opponents. First was Leeds (November 22), followed by Wolves (November 28) and Tottenham (December 5). Arsenal’s 14 and 15 opponents will be Everton (December 19) and Chelsea (November 26).

The ability to win points in these 5 matches of “Gunners” is being questioned, especially with how they lost to Aston Villa recently. The Emirates Stadium team also has to kick the Premier League alternating with the Europa League. 

MU is also a team to be careful because their next step is not easy. Solskjaer teachers and students also play in the League Cup, so the schedule will be thicker than other teams. If you do not choose the right target, the fact that MU is in the bottom group of the table is not fiction.

Of course, this is just a hypothesis but the reality is how it still takes time to answer. However, this hypothesis shows us the attractiveness and drama of the Premier League 2020/21.
