The Spaniard miraculously turned Villa from a squad headed for relegation to one that took seventh place and earned a spot in the Europa Conference League the previous season.

Since then, the West Midlands team has only improved, amassing 29 points from 14 games prior to their Wednesday night matchup against champions Manchester City.

Although Villa needed a goal from Leon Bailey in the second half to separate the two teams, Villa had an incredible 22 shots on goal compared to Man City’s two.

Villa is now two points ahead of City and just four points behind leaders Arsenal, who they will play on Saturday, in third place in the Premier League standings.

Naturally, Emery was questioned after the match about whether Villa had suddenly become serious contenders for their first Premier League championship since the 1980–81 season. He downplayed these assertions, stating that seven other clubs are more qualified to win the prestigious title in May.

Meanwhile…

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
