The Sunday People has released a special souvenir edition to mark that rare collector’s item - an Aston Villa goal.

Villa fans probably didn’t need too much reminding of their dismal form over the last few months - having not scored since before Christmas until yesterday.

The club’s official website even had to abandon its traditional goal of the month back in October after a similar run.

Although the most recent drought was ended by Jores Akore yesterday, Villa still lost 2-1 to Chelsea and now the People has rubbed further salt into the wound. Ouch.
