This time next week we’ll be gearing up to see the Villans back in action against Blackburn and I know many of us are more than excited about that.
It’s going to be a good game for the men from Villa Park to get into given Rovers’ season is coming to an end with little to play for but we cannot get complacent.
Fortunately, with many coming back into the squad from injury, competition to play should be fierce and that should force many to raise their game.
Axel Tuanzebe is back in the fold, too, and that provides a problem for Dean Smith as one loan player will have to come out as he can only have five in the matchday squad.
The suggestion surely, then, is that with Tuanzebe back in training and fit, it’ll be Tom Carroll that comes out of the side.
Hause and Mings must play in defence at the moment, whilst in midfield we already have plenty of options.
And, that said, despite the good player that he is, you can’t see him staying at our club past the end of this season in all honesty.
