Aston Villa Grab Pole Position as Relegation Battle Goes Down to the Wire

Aston Villa's 1-0 win over Arsenal was perhaps Dean Smith's finest moment so far, as Villa's Head Coach. With others capitulating around them, it was a win that sprung Villa out of the relegation zone at the perfect time. Now, can they finish the job?

The MOMS team discuss the happenings at Villa Park on Tuesday night - how Dean Smith managed the victory in-game, while Douglas Luis, Jack Grealish, Frederick Guilbert and Ezri Konsa, all get special attention. Then we discuss the survival picture and what could happen on the last day.

We also look at Watford's suicide mission in sacking Nigel Pearson two games out, Coventry's search for a new home and actresses Natalie Portman and Jessica Chastian's (and friends) football project in Los Angeles.

In Overrated or Underrated? We look back at former Villans Mark Delaney and Charles N'Zogbia.

One game to go folks. Fingers crossed!
