Cup Final One of Thirty Six: Prematch

Recommended Posts

That's a surprise - Guilbert in from nowhere. Think it's a good move to start with jota and bring on El Ghazi for (hopefully) impact. Positive.

  I wonder how much the decision to start Guilbert in this one is due to Trezeguet playing on the left and the break up of the Egyptian link up on the right.

They are a very good team. I’ll take a point.

Yep, Bernard, Sigurdsson and Richarlison look a frightening proposition.

Jota and Guilbert linked up well in preseason. Let's see what they do when it matters...

Guilbert himself has all the makings of a fan favourite from what we've seen so far.

Everton haven’t kept 3 clean sheets in opening games since 1912!

We all know Villa love to help the opposition set records and break ducks. We're very giving.

I'd be happy to see Elmo start. Really look forward to seeing Guilbert play tho. Hopefully we'll see a performance equal to the preseason matches.

When we all approve of the lineup, they often seem to underperform. Hope that's not the case tonight.

345am - I'm awake, coffee in hand and bloody keen for our first points of the season! UTV

The only thing wrong with that is the coffee 🍺🍺🍺

Nice to see Neville and Carragher giving us the respect we deserve.

Everton have a really decent squad. There was a stat saying they have spent £20+m on 15 players since their cash injection from Moshiri.

Need to show we have the minerals tonight. Time to announce ourselves back in the top flight. Home advantage and big performances from SJG, SJM, Heaton and Mingels can get us the result.

overly optimistic prediction of a fantastic game we'll all have on record and watch back 5 times before MOTD airs:

Aston Villa 4-2 Everton

Wesley x2, McGinn, Engels

Calvert-Lewin, Sigurdsson

Well this line-up is one player from what I considered the first 11 before the season started.

So if we do badly I think i had better give up ever commenting ever again.....

Disappointed not to see Elmo in the team.

Pressure on Guilbert to perform now.
