(Football news) The Tricky Trees lost 2-0 to West Ham United, while Aston Villa defeated Fulham 2-1 in their most recent Premier League match.

Having been an overpowering force in front of Villa Park supporters, Aston Villa has been able to offset their recent home struggles with a string of outstanding away performances. Last weekend, they went five games without losing at Fulham’s Craven Cottage base.

By the sixtyth minute, the Lions were up two goals to none. Fulham’s in-form forward Rodrigo Muniz cut the deficit in half, but it was too little, too late for the Cottagers to salvage anything from the match thanks to two finishes from Ollie Watkins, his 12th and 13th goals of the top-flight season.

Thanks to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ triumph at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in gameweek 25, Villa’s win at Craven Cottage lifted Emery’s troops above their capital counterparts into fourth place in the standings, albeit with just a two-point lead over Spurs in the frenzied fight for Champions League qualification.

However, the slender success over Fulham marked just a second win from seven games in all competitions for Emery’s faltering Lions, who have lost their bite and then some at Villa Park, losing each of their last three at home to Newcastle United, Chelsea and Manchester United in league and FA Cup action.

Not since the days of Dean Smith in 2020 have Aston Villa been slain in three straight Premier League home matches, but their phenomenal scoring streak at Villa Park now reads 33 consecutive games in all tournaments since Chelsea shut them out in October 2022.
