While Villa are undefeated in their last three matches on the road in the Premier League having registered two victories and one draw. 
 
The Lions secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Leeds United in their last away match in the league which was played on February 27. 
 
John McGinn, the Villa midfielder, says they need to make the current season special following their narrow win over Leeds. 
 
“We’ve got it in us to make this a special season, a few bad performances in the last few weeks, everyone has been involved in that," McGinn said. 
 
"But here it was about rolling our sleeves up, Anwar showing a bit of quality in the first half and after that it was just flinging bodies on the line and doing anything it took to get the three points. 
 
"And thankfully we did that.”
