Aston Villa prepare to entertain Blackburn Rovers at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 42 and lost only 18 of the 77 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Villa Park was just last season, in August 2005, the Villans carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
