Many Aston Villa fans have responded to an article shared by Birmingham Mail editor Mat Kendrick discussing the return of the Premier League and the relegation battle.
The Midlands-based club will be nervously waiting for a decision on the remaining fixtures in the Premier League after many different claims predicting the outcome. Villa sit 19th in the league as things stand, with the coronavirus pandemic postponing games, and their top-flight future is very much in doubt just one season after gaining promotion via the play-off final.
Do you think Aston Villa will stay up?
Discussing the potential of playing at ‘neutral grounds’, despite 14 Premier League clubs said to be in favour of the potential idea to go ahead, club official Christian Purslow revealed Villa’s stance. Going against the idea of such a plan, citing Villa’s home form, Purslow drew a mixed reaction from some of the club’s fans.
Villa have a game in hand over relegation rivals West Ham, Bournemouth and Norwich City, perhaps making them slight favourites to beat the drop. Reacting to Kendrick’s tweet, these Villa fans gave their thoughts on the matter…

If 3 go down, two automatic in Championship come up??? Who gets the 3rd spot then??

If we’d played the same number of games, I’d accept points per game hands down, it’s the fairest way…but that 1 game would make a massive difference

They can vote for what they want. The salient point is we have a game in hand. Plus what has it got to do with the other teams anyway? No fans at the game? The @premierleague as a sellable product is worthless. I’m sure @AVFCOfficial lawyer’s are raring to go!!!

I think that is a load of rubbish. It would be a biased vote so no point

I’m getting to the point of being past caring about the Premier League, it’s a cess pit.

get the best lawyer money can buy and sue the Premier League if they relegate us with a game in hand. Cancel the league, season void is the only solution
