For the first time in what seems like an age, Aston Villa head into Christmas Day on the back of a decent result and the upcoming festive fixtures should hold no fear. Paul Lambert's side went down to ten men in Saturday's Premier League game against Manchester United but handled it just fine and secured a valuable point, bringing them to a total of 20 at Christmas.
In this week's show Chris and Steve review the draw in detail and discuss the red card shown to Gabriel Agbonlahor by referee Lee Mason from Bolton in Greater Manchester. And with an appeal presumably pending, we look ahead to Villa's first pair of Christmas fixtures by previewing the Boxing Day trip to Swansea City and Sunderland's visit to Villa Park.
