Villa v Arsenal Match Build Up

Villa v Arsenal Match Build Up

Well, Lawro is sitting good and proper on the fence tonight as he says Villa and Arsenal will draw 1-1. Not that bad a shout really unless Fabregas does another one man show like he did at the Emirates!

The BBC pundit said: 'I thought Stoke deserved their victory against Arsenal in the FA Cup on Sunday, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had the luxury of leaving quite a few star names out of the side. He will name a completely different team, although I think this game will be a draw. Villa tend to be a little negative whenever they come up against top-four opposition at home. They tend to flood the midfield and play on the break, which is probably not a bad tactic against Arsenal. But this one is a draw for me.'

The great head to head by JayVFC: Villa v Arsenal - Head To Head

Mystic Mug is out for revenge and says hook or by crook, a Villa win. At a push, 1-0 and he doesn't care where the goal comes from!

A little birdie has suggested we might be 4-5-1 today with Delph starting, don't quote me on that, I speak to a lot of little birdies and most of them tell me fibs!

MON on the game says: 'It's a really difficult game against a team who have thrown themselves back into the championship equation. They have fought back magnificently considering they were written off about five weeks ago when they were beaten by Chelsea. They have now made it like a three horse race - I think that's the case. Well done to them for that - but we have our own battles ahead and we have just got to stay with the rest of the pack.' Full interview and video: www.avfc.co.uk

Am I the only one who wants to see a 4-4-2? Friedel Young, Collins, Dunne, Beye Downing, Milner, Delph, Young Delfouneso, Agbonlahor

I'd take that formation Yanky, with the exception of Young at LB instead of Beye, and Cuellar at RB.

Still think we should play 451 in this game, we were overun in midfield last time. Let Delph start (think he deserves it) and let him get stuck into Fabregas all game. 3 points would be so welcome tonight.
