Aston Villa made it seven wins from their last seven matches on Wednesday thanks to a 2-1 win against Rotherham at the New York City Stadium.

Everyone thought Villa would continue their winning run, but they did it the hard way as they had to come from a goal and a man down to claim all three points.

Tyrone Mings was sent off with just over half an hour gone when he picked up a second yellow for handling the ball in the box. It was probably a penalty, but whether it was worthy of a yellow card and a subsequent early shower is debatable. However, as it is, Mings will now miss a crucial game on Saturday.

This crucial game is against Bristol City at Villa Park. The Robins have been playing some decent football as of late and if Dean Smith’s men play how they played against Rotherham in the first-half on Wednesday, the game could be all over by half-time.

If Villa make it eight wins from eight, and other results go their way as well, they could find themselves with a nice eight point gap between them in 5th and Middlesbrough in 7th.

Here’s what we think the starting XI will be against Bristol City on Saturday:
