aston villa and swansea to draw 11/5

Two teams chopping their way through tricky seasons, with both facing a second game in three days, meant that Saturday's game had the potential to be pretty evenly matched.

Villa had just 27pc possession against a team who have a superb ability to retain the ball but, without star striker Michu, lack the sort of cutting edge that brought them success last season.

Villa, meanwhile, having lost at home to Crystal Palace, seemed happy with a point.
