      Tip Reasoning

      Aston Villa had to make the trip to a relatively impressive Crystal Palace last weekend, not an enviable task by any means.

      They came up empty handed after a frenzied 15 minutes which saw Palace come away with a 2-1 victory courtesy of a late Bakary Sako winner on his debut.

      Aston Villa had to get over this blow in the Premier League quickly so they could regroup in time for their Capital One Cup match against Notts County.

      After failing to impress going forward in the Premier League so far this season, they showed that they do have some goalscoring threats in this match. They came away 5-3 victors in this match, which was taken to extra time after a 3-3 draw after 90 minutes.

      Scott Sinclair bagged a hat trick to stake his claim for the first time, whilst Adama Traore also got his first goal for the club.

      Sunderland, after quite frankly a desperately poor start to the season, managed to improve their performance last weekend when they faced the in form Swansea.

      They managed to snatch a point from the Welsh side thanks to Jermain Defoe’s second half equaliser after Bafetimbi Gomis opened the scoring at the stroke of half time.

      This 1-1 draw is a vast improvement on their 4-2 defeat to Leicester and their 3-1 loss to Norwich. However, they still have a long way to go if they are to avoid a relegation battle come the closing stages of the season.

      Maybe their Capital One Cup win over Exeter City will have boosted their confidence. It was an absolute thriller of a match, with the score being 3-3 at half time and Sunderland eventually walking away 6-3 winners.

      Jermain Defoe bagged another hat trick to add to his career total, Jack Rodwell scored a brace, and young star Duncan Watmore managed to get on the scoresheet for the second time this season.

      Villa have the upper hand in both form and historic results. They haven’t lost to Sunderland in any of their last 6 meetings, with 4 of them ending in victory for the Villains. Coming in at odds of 4/5, we think that backing a home win is an excellent chance to make some money.
