Aston Villa can match a remarkable 40-year club record when they host Fulham at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon (14:00).
The Villans have the chance to win a 13th consecutive league game this weekend – something they have not achieved since 1983. Fulham will be looking to bounce back after losing very late on against Manchester United last time out.
Diego Carlos will be absent for the hosts, after the Brazilian was taken off injured after scoring Villa’s equaliser in midweek.
Jacob Ramsey is not expected to make a return until after the international break, while Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia remain long-term absentees.
As for Fulham Issa Diop’s foot injury will rule him out of this clash, while Rodrigo Muniz is a major doubt after going off against Man Utd last week.
Villa are 4/7 to extend their winning run at home, while Fulham are 9/2 to claim the three points and the draw is 16/5.
Both teams to score can be backed at 8/11, while over 2.5 goals is 8/13.
Aston Villa to win and over 2.5 goals @ 6/5
Aston Villa have won each of their last 12 home games in the Premier League and they can continue that fantastic run against a Fulham side who have lost five times this term.
However, the hosts have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their five home wins this term, while they’ve conceded in eight of their last nine league outings.
Fulham have managed to score in four of their six away matches this season, so I think there’ll be plenty of goals in this one.
Douglas Luiz to score anytime @ 3/1
Douglas Luiz has been involved in a goal in seven straight home league games, scoring seven times in that run.
The midfielder is not only Villa’s penalty taker, but he’s becoming more adventurous under Unai Emery. I’m backing him to continue a fantastic run of goals with a strike against Fulham here, and considering his form, 3/1 is cracking value, in my opinion.
