Villa did not allow Abraham's absence to stop them getting all three points, with Jonathan Kodjia scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory.

This was Villa's 10th win in a row, a superb record for Dean Smith's side.

Villa now sit in fifth place in the Championship and are play-off bound. 

Their prolific form and talented squad means they are the team every club will want to avoid.
