'Biggest Game Of Season'
David O'Leary has shuffled his pack in tonight's crucial all Premiership clash in round five of the FA Cup.
Both clubs are desperate to progress in the worlds most famous cup competition, it is certainly Villa's only realistic route into Europe this season.
Gavin McCann returns from injury, James Milner is back after sitting out the league game against Newcastle and Steven Davis has recovered from an injury in time. Milan Baros has been chosen to start alongside Luke Moore. That means Lee Hendrie will be back on the bench and Whittingham hasn't even done that well! Kevin Phillips has also been dropped down to the bench, shame, it is his bite and industry that gets our team going.
Villa from: Sorensen, Delaney, Samuel, Mellberg, Hughes, Milner, McCann, Davis, Barry, Baros, Moore. Subs: Taylor, Hendrie, Angel, Ridgewell, Phillips.
Manchester City have a travelling army of nearly 6,000 fans who'll take up the North Stand.
Stuart Pearce has called this game, according to their official site, 'the biggest game of the season'.
