Aston Villa are one game away from a return to the Premier League after three years away from the English top flight.

In a season that looked dead in the water back in January, Dean Smith has revitalised his team and taken them back to Wembley.

The Villans will be keen to avoid a repeat of last season’s final, where Steve Bruce’s side suffered defeat at the hands of Fulham at the national stadium.

Villa will face Frank Lampard’s Derby County at Wembley, who beat Leeds in dramatic fashion to book their place in the final.

As with recent seasons, Villa have made several Summer and Winter signings this term, with several being key players on the road to Wembley, whilst some have been very lacklustre in the claret and blue of the Villa.

Here, we’ll be grading all of Villa’s signings from this season, handing out A-F grades to Villa’s recruits of the 2018/19 season.
