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.
An excellent young English keeper who is in the form of his life at the moment, it takes something special to beat him.
The former Hull defender is a classy player with an excellent delivery. Experienced at this level, and one to watch out for going forward.
The Wales international is an accomplished defender who can play if he needs to. Will aim to keep the Burton attack quiet.
Terry has returned to the Villa team and has kept them ticking. An excellent leader on the pitch.
Part of the very experienced back four for Aston Villa, he is an excellent defender who can out-muscle anyone in the league.
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.
The Spurs youth product Josh Onomah has played a lot of games for Villa this season and should slot in on the wing here.
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.
Steve Bruce may be thinking about using Glenn Whelan in midfield but Hourihane will offer him swifter movement and passing.
Snodgrass reminded everybody of his quality this week, and the Scottish international is a talented player who is too good for the Championship.
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.
