Hutton & N'Zogbia Possibles For Liverpool

Hutton & N'Zogbia Possibles For Liverpool

Alex McLeish has revealed that it's possible Alan Hutton and Charles N'Zogbia will be back in time for Liverpool, but Carlos and Clarkie are definitely ruled out.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the encounter, Alex explained that Alan Smith had been happy with Hutton's and N'Zogbia's progress this week, but that Carlos is likely to miss both the Liverpool and Stoke games with his thigh problem, and worst still, Ciaran Clark has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee issue:

'It's a little bit of walking egg shells with a few of the lads. Charles and Alan have been working with Alan Smith, and as far as I can see Alan was very happy with their progress. They said they feel good, we hope that they could be available.'

If both don't make it in time for Liverpool, the hope is they will definitely be back in time for Stoke.

Lichaj deserves to start over Hutton. N'Zogbia? Bit weird that N'Zogbia is nearly ready to play when he was suppose to be out for 6 weeks, miracle or what...

No chance of winning Marshy? Yes were not the favourites but to say we have 'no chance' against lets face it a poor Liverpool side is harsh.

i can see villa getting a draw on saturday as i feel the team should the team that finished against chealsea and yes it was a young team but they have the hunger and want to be in the squad - Mr Eric Lichaj well deserves his spot at right back and albrighton can at least start with wiemann aswell. ok ok albrighton has not been in best of forms latly but i feel his dropping was needed for him to get back his usual self. fingers crossed that Nzog will be ok for this game but if he is going to be played he should come on near the end of the game just so he can get some match fitness as cannot really be risked. i think if we get a draw against liverscum and a win against stoke and then a win against bolton i feel that we would be safe - LETS ALL GET BEHIND VILLA FOR THE LAST FEW GAMES OF THE SEASON. i no there hasnt really been anything to sing about at VP but lets lift the team with our voice and be the 12th man like we used to be

P.Avfc - I wouldn't say they were poor. They was unlucky against Newcastle IMHO. They're creating chances, but they're not going in. Watch that change when we get there....sods law!

Is it my imagination or did I read somewhere that Mutton had played a few games here and there at CB? Certainly wouldn't entertain the idea of Lichaj being dropped if he Mutton is fit... with all due respect to young Nathan, we do need a bit more experience in the side.

Villa will be out of the game by H-T on Saturday, save any players until Monday - Baker should not be playing at this level and it will cost us every game.
