Aston Villa play host to Watford at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, with a 62.50% success rate in the fixture.

The last time the two teams met at Aston Villa was back in February 2000, over five years ago, as they swept to an impressive 4-0 win in a Premiership match.
