Subs: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Savic, De Jong, Pizarro, Suarez, Nasri
Score: 4-2 to City
I just think this’ll be a game for Milner to shine and Johnson worked very hard against Fulham and so deserves his place. I’ve put Barry in there…but he doesn’t seem to do well for us against Villa so this MIGHT be a De Jong game instead.
Hopefully Kompany will be fit and if so, perhaps Villa won’t score 2. But despite being a very average team; a poor home record and possible descent in the home stands, they do have the players going forward to hurt teams and we need to be very wary of that. They also have the dreaded…Robbie Keane!
But I think our confidence is back and if Villa come at us, which I think they will; I think we’ll hurt them, more than they’ll hurt us.
