Can Aston Villa make Europe? With two games in hand, they could
It is still tough to look at the and figure out where some of the teams will finish.
Manchester City has won the league, of course, that much we know. But when it comes to the top four UEFA Champions League places, nor the fifth and sixth (maybe seventh) place Europa spots, it is still up in the air.
Aston Villa has two games in hand on the rest of the teams, and is desperate to make another foray into Europe.
Today, the Villains take on Sheffield United, which is 15 points from safety with just 12 matches to go. The Blades have been dulled, and are heading back to the Championship.
Aston Villa needs to win today to keep up its momentum.
