When you read the pre-match thread and realise after all the excitement and optimism we are likely to start with Hourihane in midfield again.  Not that I don't like him, but the with the general squad improvement going on one would have hoped he may have been relegated to a non-starter.

And Targett at left back....

Doesn't take a genius to recognise where the bulk of Sheff Utds play will be directed this evening.... At every opportunity in Bramall Lane last season they switched the play to target their right wing back against Targett. Eventually taking Jack out of the game by forcing him to help Targett out.

I'd be interested to see what condition McGinn is in this evening. Hope he has used the break wisely and a far more athletic player emerges today. Finished the season at 10 so that's where I expect him tonight with Trez and Jack either side.

A win would be great, a highly fortunate technology enabled one...even better

There hasn't been a single draw in this round of matches so I fully expect us to buck that trend.

1-1

80-1 on a Villa 3-1 win with Watkins scoring first...
I stuck 2 on Grealish to score first and either Aston Villa to win 2-1 or Draw 2-2 at 50/1 even though I don't really think there will be that many goals.

I'm going 3-0 to us.  Defensively we're better than we were and we've also got a striker.

Team as expected. Cash and Watkins start.

No Samatta in 18.

Is there a book going on how many times Sky will mention the incident from the last time we played Sheff U?
