Alan Hutton sees improvement in Aston Villa training

Aston Villa have failed to win a Premier League match since the first day of the season.

Alan Hutton has told Aston Villa's official website that he has seen the group improving day after day in training. 

The Claret and Blues made a number of changes during the summer transfer window, and many of their new additions had no previous experience, or very little, of Premier League football.

The transition has proved to be a tough one so far, but Hutton insists that the squad are getting more accustomed to working with one another, and he believes that positive results lie just around the corner. 

"We're a new team with new players - and we are progressing. I see it every day on the training field," he said. 

"We're getting more used to each other all the time and I think you'll see better times ahead for this group of players as the weeks go by."

Despite Hutton's optimism, positivity is in short supply among Villa supporters, due to their awful start to the campaign.

The Sherwood's side have not won a Premier League match since the opening day of the season, and they are currently languishing in 19th place in the top-flight standings. 

Villa's next match comes against Swansea City at the weekend, and another defeat could spell disaster for the club. 

Not only would they slip further into relegation trouble, the Daily Mirror have also suggested that Tim Sherwood could be sacked if Villa are to lose the match, meaning that there is no margin for error.
