Hulk Hogan. I should know and we will win and keep Jeremy out of number ten!

I'll echo everything Ads has said on here so far. We're better. If we show up, we win. We've got too many threats.

4-1. McGinn, El Ghazi, Elmo, Abraham. Someone inconsequential for them.

No fuck it. We'll have win 3-2. Kodjia with the winner leaving Rowett with a face like a smacked arse.

After their summer transfer business Stoke were my pre season title favourites. They have had a very similar season to us so far. A sluggish start with not many defeats but too many draws and now starting to pick up a bit.

From the official Villa twitter site

From Dean's press conference

Jack, doubtful
Albert, highly unlikely
Taylor, Henri, Mile and Bree all definitely out

In light of the injuries, my team would be;

Nyland

Hutton
Chester
Tuanzebe
Elmo

Whelan

McGinn
Hourihane

Bolasie
El Gahzi

Abraham

I'd give O'Hare 20 minutes too.

We'll have to adapt without Jack making runs and the onus will be on McGinn to hit the box and Hourihane to move the game in quickly.

Feel we have far too much fire power for them and expect they'll come and sit in, With Afobi up top on his own and his midfield 30 yards behind him.

Scoring first and second will be key. Fast start and get that two goal cushion, they're not coming back.

The weather forecast is very poor for match time. Very cold, wet and windy. Snow possible.
