My lad is flying into Heathrow from Australia on Monday morning.  He pre-booked his flight in February, just after we lost to the Albion. I told him he was mad, but he was convinced we'd be there.

He was there last year, but says this time it's different. If we perform how we can, we have nothing to worry about. UTV

Thatís what you call keeping the faith.

With apparently everybody available apart from Nyland, does that mean Chester gets a place on the bench ?

Pleased Tuanzebe is fit. I'd put Chester on the bench. Hause should start ahead of Taylor.

Hause and Kodjia should start.......but ill be shocked if its not Taylor and Adomah, i think Smith will stay loyal to the ones who have played most the season.

Hourihane or Whelen is the only other slight question mark, he should and will go for Hourihane i believe.

I really wouldnt start Whelan on that big Wembley putch, especially as we shud be looking to take the game to Derby and win it in 90mins, bring Whelan on late on to protect what we have shud we be winning.

It's the same size as the pitch at Villa Park.

My worry is the state of the pitch after the matches on Saturday and Sunday.

Unless you meant 'Wembley putsch', in which case I'd still much rather have Whelan there, defending the stadium.

You should have a look at the Wembley IKEA. It feels bigger than Saturn.
