Aston Villa v Stoke 0-0 draw, 8/1

This is the sort of game that somebody who doesn't like you very much might get you tickets for – two of the Premier League's lowest scorers coming together for a game where the stars of the show were the 30,110 who turned up to watch.

'No goalscorer' bets are always risky and priced at around 8/1 but, given the two teams involved, this was worth the risk.
