Christmas didn't go Aston Villa's way but the dawn of 2013 saw the team unbeaten in their two matches and still very much in both domestic cup competitions. On New Year's Day, Villa rode their luck to come within a whisker of a win at Swansea City in the Premier League, securing a valuable point that nevertheless felt like a loss.
