The Aston Villa football club extended their Premier League winless streak to seven games with a January 17th loss against Liverpool. The team hasn’t won a match in the domestic division since early December, and is slipping further and further down the 2014 – 2015 league standings table.

The last time the Lions won a football game, it was early December and they were taking down Leicester City in a home match. A week before that fixture, they’d beaten Crystal Palace. For good reason, soccer fans in the Aston Villa football kit wondered if their club might finally be getting into a winning groove.
But that wasn’t the case. The Leicester City home win was followed by a loss to West Bromwich Albion, and the Lions haven’t been able to win a game in league ever since. They clinched an FA Cup match a few weeks ago, beating Blackpool 1-0, but other than that minor victory, their recent record has been a wasteland of draws and losses.
This isn’t the first winless streak that the wearers of the Aston Villa home shirt 2014 – 2015 have had to deal with this season. On the contrary, the club went nine weeks without a Premier League win between late September and early December—a disappointing stretch that ruined what had been a strong season opening for the club. Indeed, in the first four weeks of play, the Lions won three of their matches, and were ranked in the top three on the 2014 – 2015 division standings table.
Leicester City and Liverpool FC
The early surge of success wasn’t the only reason that Aston Villa fans were optimistic about their team’s 2014 – 2015 chances. The Lions have shown a lot of promise this year, forcing draws in fixtures with top-ranked teams like Manchester United and Southampton, and even managing an away win against Liverpool in the early weeks of the soccer season.
Unfortunately, fans in the Aston Villa football kit might not be feeling so optimistic after the past couple of matches. Over the past two weekends, the squad has lost fixtures against teams they beat earlier in the season. And if the Lions can’t beat the clubs they’ve already taken down once, how can they hope to contend with more dominant teams like Chelsea and Manchester City?
On January 10th, the Claret and Blue fell to Leicester City in a 0-1 away fixture. And on January 17th, they donned the Aston Villa home shirt 2014 – 2015 only to suffer a shutout at the hands of Liverpool.
The Liverpool loss, in particular, was a tough pill to swallow for fans of the team. After all, the win against the Reds in the first month of the season was one of Villa’s big badges of honor for the 2014 – 2015 run. They managed the 1-0 victory at Liverpool’s own Anfield stadium, and in the process, positioned them as potential dark horses for an English soccer title. After all, the Reds only narrowly missed out on a Premier League title in 2013 – 2014.
Evidently, though, the win was just a fluke. The Reds controlled the January 17th fixture from the get-go, forcing the Lions and their fans to suffer a demoralizing at-home defeat. Aston Villa couldn’t even get on the board, and ultimately lost the game 0-2.
The loss drops Aston Villa to 15th place on the 2014 – 2015 division standing table. Now, instead of fighting for the title of “dark horse contender,” it looks like the squad will simply be fighting to avoid relegation.
Or can they rise up and reclaim a spot in the top 10? With upcoming fixtures against Arsenal and Chelsea, it seems unlikely, but a win in either game would go a long way toward revitalizing the club’s spirits and momentum.
