Aston Villa are on fire at the minute, they’ve managed eight wins on the bounce, it’s hard to get against the Villains here.
Jack Grealish’s return to fitness has had a big part to play in the Villa revival but they’ve looked stronger at the back than usual which is a huge confidence boost for Dean Smith’s side. They haven’t conceded more than one goal in their last 9 league games which surely must pleaded the Villa management squad.
They’ve not relinquished their attack prowess though. Tammy Abraham has remained in the goals and winger Anwar El-Ghazi has tormented defences no end of late. Centre half Tyrone Mings has also been a revelation at the back showing his class, it won’t be long till he’s a regular premier league player.
The West Midlands club face a Millwall side that are all but safe in the championship. Neil Harris has done a sterling job and their aggressive, physical style has hurt teams up and down the league. Their last gasp equaliser against Sheffield United showed their effervescent spirit and they will fully deserve their place in this division next term. However, the Lions don’t have tonnes to play for now and that could affect performance levels.
Villa remain without centre halves Tommy Elphick and James Chester, keeper Orjan Nyland is a doubt. Lover Kalinic and Kourtney Hause are also doubts.
Millwall have no new injury concerns.
Potential Aston Villa Starting XI: Johnstone, El Mohamedy, Tuanzebe, Mings, Taylor, Whelan, McGinn, Hourihane, El Ghazi, Adomah, Abraham.
Potential Millwall Starting XI: Martin, Romeo, Pearce, Cooper, Meredith, Marshall, Thompson, Leonard, Ferguson, Wallace, Gregory.
Key Stats & Facts
- Aston Villa have won their last 9 matches in all comps.
- Aston Villa have scored at least 2 goals in 13 of their last 14 games.
- Over 2.5 goals has landed in 12 of Villas last 13 games.
Villa are rightly favourites and they’re in exceptional form, almost untouchable. Therefore, I have to get with the home side, but instead of taking the 4/7 quotes on them I’ll boost it to 10/11 by chucking in over 1 goal alongside a home win.
Villa have seen plenty off goals at their base of late, in fact 12 of their last 13 home games have seen 3 goals or more. What’s more, they’ve won their last 4 games at Villa Park.
