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
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.
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.
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.
