Brentford 2-3 Sheffield United: Brentford plummeted to defeat for the sixth time since the departure of Dean Smith to Aston Villa just a month ago
2 weeks ago
Seventeen matches and 1,530 minutes into this Championship season, all that separates Aston Villa and Birmingham City, 11th and 12th respectively, is one goal. The improving Villa, now with Brummie native and boyhood fan Dean Smith at the helm, delivered a statement result – well, as much as that is possible in this ever-fluctuating division – in their 3-0 dismantling of Derby County at Pride Park a fortnight ago. Birmingham, meanwhile, have lost just once in their last 13 matches and in the Championship’s October player of the month Lukas Jutkiewicz – with eight goals in his last eight matches – and Che Adams (five in his last five), there is surely no strike pairing in better form.

Welcome to a short installment of Expected Villa (xV), a semi-regular column that looks at the statistics behind Villa’s results and seasons. Once Dean Smith gets a few games under his belt, we’ll take a look at the prognosis for the rest of the season, but for now, we try to figure out who’s actually good in the Championship. If you were going to tell me at the start of the season that Steve Bruce would be sacked before the October international break, I’d have said Villa would probably be well out of the automatic promotion race. While those two early wins helped put Villa in a better place after Bruce’s departure, the club’s relatively close standing to the top of the table is more down to how the rest of the league has played rather than how Villa played under their previous manager.

Aston Villa’s new Head Coach, Dean Smith, will take charge of his first Villa game riding a wave of unexpected optimism. It’s a sell-out. Every Villan and their dog is backing him and AVFC to the hilt. He’ll face Swansea - and the tactically astute coach will go up against a formidable opponent. Graham Potter’s side are one of the best footballing teams in this Championship. Smith will have to weaponise the good vibes at Villa Park, and he’ll have to hit the ground running.

After sacking the manager who has won promotion to the Premier League more times than anyone else, who do Aston Villa turn to next? Steve Bruce's departure on Wednesday ended his two-year spell in charge, after a run of one win in nine Championship games which culminated in Tuesday's dramatic 3-3 draw with Preston. The 57-year-old's exit has prompted more than the usual flurry of speculation over possible replacements - but, if the manager with four previous promotions to his name could not get Villa back up, who can? BBC Sport runs through the men being linked with the top job at a club that - according to former Villa and Republic of Ireland midfielder Andy Townsend - "has lost its way". The
