I think Oscar's team is most likely with possibly O'Hare on the bench. It'll be another tough game as they have picked up in recent weeks so I'll go for a 2-2 draw.

We need a win. 1-0 2-0 2-1 3-1 3-2 or whatever.

Dunno why but a couple of games on the bench and completely forgot about Kodj!

I think it will be him coming back in for Jack and we'll see El Ghazi in number 10 role and I reckon he'll do well in that position with his confidence up now.

I donít think I have seen us beat Stoke which is a worry.
Expecting a tough game and terrible weather.

Only my second game up to Villa Park this season  due to time and finances so looking forward to this. I worked it out, I've been quite lucky, in last thirteen visits to Villa Park ive  only seen one defeat and that was vs Ipswich in Bruce's first season - although I did see us lose at Wembley in May - so hopefully the omens will be good tomorrow too. Think we will  by the odd goal, we'll be good going forward and dodgy at the back. 3-2 Villa.

Good call....I could see that working.

We really need to dispatch these - and I reckon we will.

2-0 Villa.

It won't be easy today, Stoke unbeaten in last 8, going 2-1 Villa with the winner coming from another Anwar cracker. That almost rhymes!

Just read they're unbeaten in 8 and haven't lost away since September, still think we will do them though.

I'd be really tempted to go:

                Nyland
Elmo Chester  Axel  McCafu 
             Hourihane
          El Ghazi   SJM
Jimmy    Abraham   Bolasie

Bit I think Whelan will will play

Big game for both. Stoke are hard to predict feels like they are starting to get into their groove.  But our form is good and I think playing at home could be the key.  2-1 Villa.  Kodja and Connor.
