Having had a good look at the whole injury/Chelsea at the weekend algebra, I’ve come round to the idea that this game isn’t the walk in the park some might believe it to be.
The Villans are subject to 27 late fitness tests, but is this really going to work in our favour?
One of the many strengths of André and his crew of football specialists is assessing the opposition.
Tonight’s game, in the main, will not allow that to happen.
Paul Lambert will be living on his wits for this one. We’ll be living on a mix of first teamers and guys wanting to get their name in the frame. Of all the talk about Spurs ‘gelling’ this season, could potentially come to light tonight.
Prediction? I expect Villa to come flying out the traps. Tempo could be a feature, neither side will exactly have age on its side. Let’s hope it’s watchable, eh? I’d love to a high scoring game, but think it’ll be 0–1 to us.
