Villa fans have remained pretty positive about their Premier League survival hopes over the last few months, but the manner of their 2-0 defeat against Southampton on Saturday has left many fearing the worst. The hosts managed 28 shots on goal compared with Villa’s 4, and the margin of victory should have been more convincing. It’s difficult to ignore the fact that the Carabao Cup Final would have been on the minds of the Villa players, but Dean Smith knows that the priority for his side has to be surviving in the Premier League rather than winning at Wembley this weekend. Four of Villa’s remaining home games (against Chelsea, Wolves, Manchester United and Crystal Palace) have been scheduled for TV, which suggests that the broadcasters think there will be some twists and turns before the relegation battle reaches a conclusion.
