Stat pack: Preston v Villa

Here you'll find the best of the bitesize stats ahead of our visit to Preston North End this evening.

Find out which man has his only league hat-trick against the Lilywhites, why Preston can be considered the Championship's unluckiest team in recent weeks and which players top our seasonal statistics.

Kodjia wrap-up

On a roll

We have taken 23 points from our opening 14 matches – our best start to a league season since 2008/09, when we took 24 points from 14 matches.

In form

Only Derby County are in better form than us at present, following their win at Leeds United on Tuesday.

However, victory at Deepdale this evening would see us back to the top of those form charts.

Big part to play?

Scott Hogan scored his only EFL hat-trick against Preston in September last year when he was playing for Brentford.

Same again tonight please, Scott!

High Five

Three points at Deepdale would see us back into the Championship play-off positions and up to fifth, and five points off the automatic positions.

Goals not enough

Preston haven't won in four Sky Bet Championship matches – drawing two and losing two. 

That's despite scoring a minimum of two goals in all of those games.
