🗞️ Team News: Aston Villa

It’s our opinion that The Villans will probably use a 4-2-3-1 formation for the game, handing starts to Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Pau Francisco Torres, Lucas Digne, Boubacar Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Nicolò Zaniolo, Moussa Diaby, John McGinn and Ollie Watkins.

Álex Moreno (Hamstring Injury), Emiliano Buendía (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Tyrone Mings (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for Aston Villa boss Unai Emery.

ℹ️ Team News: Brighton

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has to currently contend with reduced team options. Julio Enciso (Torn Meniscus) and Jakub Moder (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We’re of the thinking that The Seagulls could decide to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system with a starting lineup of Bart Verbruggen, Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster, Pervis Estupiñán, Billy Gilmour, Mahmoud Dahoud, Simon Adingra, Facundo Buonanotte, Danny Welbeck and Evan Ferguson.
