The Kiss Of Death For Villa?
Oh no, the kiss of death. BBC pundit and moustached one Mark Lawrenson has tipped Villa to beat Fulham tomorrow.
He said 'Both teams will be looking for a strong finish to the season - and with huge prize money on offer depending on where you finish in the Premiership you can hardly blame them. I have watched Villa recently and I am quite excited by the likes of John Carew, Ashley Young and Shaun Maloney - they have a bit of vibrancy about them.'
Adding on the BBC site 'I think Villa will win this and I don't think Fulham fans will be disappointed to hear that. I have spoken to a few recently and they told me to keep on tipping their team to lose as the reverse seems to happen.'
His prediction is 1-2
Mystic mug says 0-2 with John Carew and Ashley Young turning on the style.
Wilfred Bouma is fit to return, Luke Moore has scored four in four games for the reserves.
