Is Aston Villa vs Brentford on TV and how can I watch it? Despite being picked for a 2pm Sunday kick-off - a time usually reserved for televised fixtures - on October 23, Villa’s first match without Gerrard will not be shown on live TV. There will, however, be highlights available on the Sky Sports app and Sky Sports YouTube channel around 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.
Villa are currently hunting for a replacement, but in the interim, first-team coach Aaron Danks will be the man in the dugout. The former England U21 and West Brom staff member has quite a task on his hands to shift the Villans up the table, as they currently sit above the relegation zone on goals scored.
