Bruce to make 1 important change – Strongest 4-1-4-1 Aston Villa lineup to face Burton

Predicted Aston Villa Lineup To Face Burton Albion In EFL Championship

Aston Villa are unbeaten in 2018 and have the top-2 finish firmly in their sights. The last minute Robert Snodgrass stunner against Sheffield United in their previous game shows how the team are willing to fight to the end. A very strong and impressive team like Villa should be back in the Premier League but they have to take it one game at a time, and their next game against relegation-threatened Burton is no different.

Probable Aston Villa XI

Formation: 4-1-4-1

GK – Sam Johnstone

An excellent young English keeper who is in the form of his life at the moment, it takes something special to beat him.

RB – Ahmed El Mohamady

The former Hull defender is a classy player with an excellent delivery. Experienced at this level, and one to watch out for going forward.

CB – James Chester

The Wales international is an accomplished defender who can play if he needs to. Will aim to keep the Burton attack quiet.

John Terry

CB – John Terry

Terry has returned to the Villa team and has kept them ticking. An excellent leader on the pitch.

LB – Alan Hutton

Part of the very experienced back four for Aston Villa, he is an excellent defender who can out-muscle anyone in the league.

DM – Birkir Bjarnason

Bjarnason has been in and out of the Villa side but provides a very effective shield for the defence and had an excellent game at Bramall Lane last time out.

LM – Josh Onomah

The Spurs youth product Josh Onomah has played a lot of games for Villa this season and should slot in on the wing here.

CM – Jack Grealish

The English midfielder has had his off-field issues but has been given a new lease of life under Steve Bruce at the heart of the Villa midfield.

Conor Hourihane

CM – Conor Hourihane

Steve Bruce may be thinking about using Glenn Whelan in midfield but Hourihane will offer him swifter movement and passing.

RM – Robert Snodgrass

Snodgrass reminded everybody of his quality this week, and the Scottish international is a talented player who is too good for the Championship.

ST – Scott Hogan

Scott Hogan is on a hot streak at the moment and when you are on a hot streak, you need to keep getting games, and he is doing that at the moment.
