Aston Villa are going through some really good form lately. Beating Balckburn 4-0 away was a stunning result if you ask me. And there are couple of players I like in this Aston Villa side, namely Agbonlahor & Young. These are young players who have taken up a huge responsibility in this Villa side. The goal against Chelsea where the two combined comes to mind. They are very good footballers, no doubt about that and with Gareth Barry in some nice touch, this will be good team to beat.
Arsenal come back from their first defeat in 28 games and this is a test where they will stretched to see how they can come back from defeat. More important is the fact that Fabregas is still injured and will not feature in this match. If there is a flaw in this team it is that we do not have a player to replace Fabregas yet. Denilson is not yet there. That was all the bad news. The good news is that Hleb, Adebayor, Gallas, Flamini Clichy are all back and this side should be a really tough team to beat.
I would like to see Rosicky starting in the middle, but I am sure that is not going to happen and maybe Flamini would fit in that role. The possible starting line up would be
Sagna Toure Gallas Clichy
Eboue Flamini Gilberto Rosicky
I would like to see Bendtner get a nod in along with Adebayor. And maybe Hleb can come in at a later stage. That would be some way to see how Bendtner combines with Adebayor.
In other news Telegraph reports that Wenger might be looking for defensive cover in the January transfer window. That is quite probable. Senderos, Djourou & Song are capable but Wenger might just go for someone with all the matches happening in those 5-6 weeks.
