Aston Villa winning their opening Premier League game of the season is starting to become a bit of a habit, especially away from home. The 2015/16 campaign began with a 1-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth at the stadium variously referred to by Five Live on Saturday as Dean Court/Goldsands Stadium/Vitality Stadium, and it was a new signing, Rudy Gestede, who scored the goal.
In this week's Aston Villa Review we look back through the detail of the win on the south coast, an unusual victory as far as Villa's first-day travels to promoted clubs are concerned, and look ahead to Friday night's home match against Manchester United. We also discuss the appointment of not one but two new Villa captains, with Micah Richards taking over the armband after the departure of some guy a few weeks ago.
