Opta Stats: Wigan v Aston Villa

19May 2013

England - Premier League


Having fought a relegation battle against each other for months, it is Wigan who have been relegated from the Premier League and Aston Villa who have survived.


Wigan have failed to win any of their last six home games in the Premier League against Aston Villa (D2 L4). You can lay Wigan at 2.18.


Only against Everton (7) has Gabriel Agbonlahor netted more Premier League goals than versus Wigan (5). Agbonlahor is 3.65 to score on Sunday.


Agbonlahor has scored six goals and assisted one more in his last eight Premier League appearances. He is priced at 9.4 to score the first goal.


Wigan defeated Aston Villa 3-0 away earlier this season; the Latics have only defeated Reading home and away this campaign in the Premier League. The home side are 2.16 to win and complete the double over Villa.


Suspended striker Christian Benteke (14 goals, one assist) has contributed towards half of Aston Villa's 30 Premier League goals in 2013. Wigan are 3.55 to keep a clean sheet.


Excluding own goals, Benteke has scored or assisted 51% of Villa's goals over the course of the season; the highest proportion for any player at any club in the Premier League this term. Wigan are 3.9 to win to nil.


Villa have won 26 of their 40 points (65%) against the other sides in the bottom half of the Premier League table this season. A Villa win is available at 3.7.


Already relegated Wigan need a point from this game to avoid this being their worst ever points tally in a Premier League season (currently 35 points). They won 36 points in 2009-10. The draw is 3.65.


Shaun Maloney has scored three and assisted four goals in his last nine appearances for Wigan in all competitions. Maloney is 3.2 to score against Villa.
