One win, one loss in our two “finals” thus far this season. Can we add another mark to the “win” column today?
Surely feels like it. Aston Villa come out strongly, but so do we. The only change is Mateo Kovacic in place of N’Golo Kanté, hopefully just to let his body heal and rest before the biggest game of the year in less than a week.
Let’s do this.
Aston Villa starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Martínez | Konsa, Hause, Mings, Targett | McGinn, Nakamba | Traoré, Grealish (c), El Ghazi | Watkings
