Aston Villa can be a difficult club to understand. Home form bad, away form good. Results okay, performances woeful. Sheffield United too good, Liverpool handled. Week to week, it's near enough impossible to predict what's going to happen.
Sure enough, a week in which Villa played Arsenal and Liverpool has turned out surprisingly well.
