Thought I would give PNP a day off. Our last competitive game against the Villa was last season's win at the Villa Ground. Kane scoring both in a 2-0 win in March last year as they headed down to the Championship. This followed a 3-1 victory the previous November at the Lane After a hectic run of games for both teams, there will be much interest in the teams selected. Time to give match time to Janssen, N'Koudou and Winks or to put a marker down and play the first 11. Villa come into the game in a mixed patch of form. They sit comfortably mid-table after 5 wins in their last 10 games and are only 7 points off the play-offs. Do they see FA Cup glory as a feasible objective or will they keep their players fresh to try to climb the table in the second half of the season Their last outing was a 1-0 defeat away to Cardiff We welcome back Alan Hutton and Emmanuel Adebayor. The referee is (gulp) Mike Dean.
