Have we beaten them at Villa Park in the league since the parachuting Santa debacle?

Personally, I'm going for a win. Smash these tarquin twats into oblivion.

We're Aston Villa and we're going to win the league (*one day soon).

Yes of course. The Trez goal to help keep us up first year back, then the year after with the early Ollie goal.

Unai and Emi will be so up for this one it's untrue.  2-1 I reckon, SJM and Diaby, they'll get a late consolation but we'll be fine.

Oh yeah, of course we have - Memory not what it used to be! 
That santa fixture (*bloody awful accident aside) was an absolute belter that sticks in the mind though. 2-0 down, then turn em over 3-2 in second half!

Not sure my nerves or extinction threatened hairline could cope with that this weekend mind!

Me and Brazilian Villan will be on here at 10pm just before MOTD starts wearing our sunglasses and smirking at another fantastic result

FTF  8)

If we win on Saturday it'll be a par of wacky, 70s Elton John shades, Club Tropicana style shorts, and one of those silly sombreros that people think are a good idea to buy on their hols. 8)

As with the Citeh game, I've gone for a draw. ;)

Tricky one. I think they'll all want to play, but Arsenal are going to have more pace on the wings and less physicality up front then Man City so possibly one for Cash to come back into, with Konsa back next to Torres?  Dunno, happy either way to be honest.

I watched their game v Luton and, like Man City (and Spurs and Brighton) they play a style that should suit us more than, say Nottingham Forest.  They are get-at-able. 

We can beat anybody these days.

Get corners, stick Carlos next to their latest keeper. We have to score from a corner soon and watching how they conceded against Luton we should exploit this avenue to the full.

stop Odegaard dictating the play will be key , he sits deeps and links it all for them

Agreed, he's arguably their best player. Still, fancy our midfield to get the better of him and Rice.

If there is ONE game Unai wants to win, surely this is the one ?
