In April 2014, Villa eventually ended their six match winless run on the back of beating Hull City 3–1. This result saw the club all but guarantee their Premier League safety, due to their far superior goal difference over Norwich City, the team occupying the remaining relegation place. Ashley Westwood scored after 56 seconds and Andreas Weimann got a brace before half time, after Jordan Bowery had put through his own net.
However Villa ended a miserable season with a whimper, after two heavy defeats in four days. Villa travelled to the Etihad Stadium on 7 May for their re-scheduled game versus Manchester City in their penultimate match of the season. The eventual champions thrashed Villa 4–0, after the visitors had held out for an hour. Edin Džeko scored a brace before goals from Stevan Jovetić and Yaya Touré effectively wrapped up the title for City, who needed just a point from their final game against West Ham United (which they won 2–0) to win the league. The season was wrapped up with a 3–0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, which saw Villa finish in 15th place for the second season running.
On 12 May 2014, chairman Randy Lerner released a statement confirming that the club was up for sale. In the statement Lerner stated that 'I have come to know well that fates are fickle in the business of English football. And I feel that I have pushed mine well past the limit.' He also said that 'the last several seasons have been week in, week out battles' and claimed that he 'can see now that it is time, if possible, to hand these privileges and responsibilities to the next person or group to take the Club forward. This statement came after weeks of speculation about a possible decision to sell the club, after another statement from Lerner alluding to this at the end of April.
