Aston Villa - Full 2014/2015 Premier League fixtures confirmed

Villa Park Outside

Featuring all of Aston Villa's fixtures for the 2014/2015 Premier League season.

Aston Villa will be hoping to see some improvement and avoid a relegation battle next season after finishing their previous two Premier League campaigns in 15th place.

Their 2014/15 campaign does not get off to a bad start with an away trip to Stoke City on the opening day, followed by two home games against Newcastle and Hull City.

However that is where the 'not bad' start comes to an abrupt halt. The next five games Villa will be very lucky to get a single point out of. Away at Liverpool, home to Arsenal, away at Chelsea, home to Man City and away at Everton. 

The only positive to take out of that is some of their most difficult games will be out of the way before the end of October, and surely Lambert would not expect to pick up any points against those sides (other than maybe Everton), so anything would be a bonus.

The Christmas and New Year run-in has potential to be very good for Villa; Palace, Leicester, Albion, Swansea and Sunderland are all teams (with Man United being the exception) that Aston Villa should be in and around. So vital points could be picked up around that stage.

Vila's final fixtures of the season could be a lot worse. Their torrid start has probably made their last 11 games easier than what they could have been.

They only face one of last season's top four in their final 11 fixtures and that is reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Successive away trips to Man United and Spurs will not be easy fixtures, but other than that Paul Lambert's men have a run-in that gives them a real chance of surviving relegation and improving on the finishes of the last two seasons.
