📋 Team News: Aston Villa
The Aston Villa boss Unai Emery will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match owing to a completely healthy group available to choose from.
It’s our opinion that The Villans may well line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one and select Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Lucas Digne, Boubacar Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Leon Bailey, John McGinn, Jacob Ramsey and Ollie Watkins.
📰 Team News: Brighton
Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Jeremy Sarmiento (Metatarsal Fracture) and Tariq Lamptey (Knee Injury) are not able to play.
We reckon that The Seagulls appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 formation, settling for Jason Steele, Pascal Gross, Adam Webster, Levi Colwill, Joel Veltman, Yasin Ayari, Alexis Mac Allister, Facundo Buonanotte, Deniz Undav, Julio Enciso and Evan Ferguson.
In this match, Brighton & Hove Albion certainly have the ability to break down this Aston Villa team, although it probably won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
Our selection here is for a close game with a 2-1 victory for Aston Villa after the 90. We’ll have to see what happens.
