Wigan 2-2 Aston Villa Highlights

Wigan signed off their eight-year stay in the Premier League with a spirited draw against Aston Villa in an entertaining clash at the DW Stadium.

Venue: DW Stadium
Date: Sunday, 19 May, 2013
Kick off: 16:00 GMT




Wigan have failed to win any of their last six home games in the Premier League against Aston Villa (D2, L4).

The last Latics win over Villa at home was a 3-2 Premier League victory in April 2006.

Wigan defeated Aston Villa 3-0 away earlier this season; the Latics have only defeated Reading home and away this campaign in the Premier League.


Wigan are the first team to win the FA Cup and be relegated in the same season.

Already-relegated Wigan need a point from this game to avoid this being their worst ever points tally in a Premier League season (they currently have 35 points). They amassed 36 points in 2009-10.

Shaun Maloney has scored three and assisted four goals in his last nine appearances for Wigan in all competitions.

On Tuesday, the Latics became only the third away team to have greater possession than Arsenal in a Premier League game at the Emirates this season (with Newcastle and Man City).

Aston Villa

Villa have won 26 of their 40 points (65%) against the other sides in the bottom half of the Premier League table this season.

Aston Villa have never lost more games in a single Premier League campaign than in this season (17), matching their tally in 2002-03.

Suspended striker Christian Benteke (14 goals, one assist) has contributed towards half of Aston Villa’s 30 Premier League goals in 2013.

Only against Everton (seven) has Gabriel Agbonlahor netted more Premier League goals than versus Wigan (five).

Agbonlahor has scored six goals and assisted one more in his last eight Premier League appearances.
