Heh, I do love it when I sneak out of work early, especially when it’s to watch a game.
Onto the serious stuff though and so much for Lambert giving us a surprise. It’s exactly the team we probably should have expected, with no Grealish or Robinson on show.
While part of me thinks it’s probably the best side he can select, it’s not very bold is it?
Let’s see what happens, but if we get a drubbing, expect me to be moaning that the manager should have changed it up a little.
Aston Villa: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar (c), Okore, Clark, Cissokho, Sanchez, Delph, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke
Subs: Given, Bacuna, Herd, N’Zogbia, Robinson, Grealish, Calder
Manchester United: De Gea, Jones, Carrick, Evans, Valencia, Fletcher, Mata, Rooney, Young, RvP, Falcao
Subs: Lindegaard, Blackett, McNair, Rafael, Di Maria, Januzaj, Wilson
Even though I’ve heard a few neutrals say they think United are vulnerable at the back, I’ll go for a 2-1 loss.
