Unai Emery weighs up £30m swap as Emi Martinez call made - Aston Villa predicted XI v Fulham - gallery
Here’s how we predict Aston Villa’s starting lineup to look against Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday.
Aston Villa play host to Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday night as Unai Emery’s side look to extend their impressive unbeaten streak to 10 games. The run continued with a 1-1 draw at Brentford on the weekend, with Douglas Luiz scoring a late equaliser.
It’ll be a tough ask with more games played than other clubs in and around them, but the fight for European qualification is still very much on for Villa. Currently in sixth spot and without a defeat since the 4-2 to Arsenal on February 18, confidence is certainly in the Villans’ favour.
This midweek’s opponents, the Cottagers, have fallen away from said European battle but haven’t given up on their season just yet. They’ve been victorious in their two previous outings - a 2-1 home success over Leeds United on Saturday the most recent of those - and will want to end the campaign on a high.
It’ll no doubt be a tough test under the lights for Emery’s men, especially after a drop in performance levels at Brentford. With that in mind, we think the Villa head coach will switch things up a little, with opportunities for two players to come into the starting XI. See below.
