For me:

                                Reina

                  Konsa - Mings - Hause

Guilbert - Nakamba - Drinkwater - Targett

                             Grealish

                      Samatta - Davis

 

subs: Nyland, Elmo, Engels, Luiz, Vassilev, Trez, El Ghazi.

Best aerial duel % winner for +50 won in the PL which was a huge problem for us earlier in season. Chances conceded left have massively decreased. Made brilliant cut out tackle vs Watford, found Grealish in opposition corner with long balls and we don't score winner if he doesn't get knock down in box. Right footer is not getting played at LCB get used to it

What is your obsession with Davis? 2 goals playing most games in first half of 17/18 Championship season. Smith is never going with 2 forwards up front definitely not the formation you've posted. Looks like hoofball setup

Just watched the cup tie against Arsenal. I'm not sure whether Bournmouth were at full strength or how many changes they may have made but i thought they were poor tonight.

They have not got a lot going forward and it was only the last few mins where they attacked.

Nulify Harry Wilson and If we play to our strengths and on on our game we can get 3 points from them.

100% what I would do.

Samatta and Davis are both mobile and can make the runs into channel if needs be.

It's all about Grealish. We need to get him in games more. From the middle he'll be able to get us forward either himself or feeding wing backs, or playing it into strikers.

In the last few games though El Ghazi has looked good when switching back out to the right so it would be nice to have 90 mins of it from him if he does get the chance.

I'd go for the same starting 11 but Luiz needs to be on the bench DD will probably come off after 60 mins and DL is the natural replacement I'd drop Taylor from the bench.

Hopefully Mings & Samatta pull up alright, they looked like they both had little hamstring niggles.

So massive.

Reina or Nyland?

Drink or Luiz?

Ghazi or Trez?

There's the decisions.

I personally would bring Engels in for Hause. He's just too shaky on the ball for me, he's going to lose the ball badly soon and I don't want it to cost us points. He's in the team because he's left footed and that's not enough of an excuse for me.

And wins higher % of headers than any player in PL which was a massive problem for us before Smith started playing him.

The back three has solved that issue for us more than Hause IMO.

If he was right footed he wouldn't be playing.

He won't be dropped anyway. 

He's getting close to scoring recently actually. Be nice if he could nod one in at the other end.

I enjoyed the assist of the assister vs Watford. Forget the Mings stud touch

Hopefully we’ll be fully focused on what is probably a more important game than last night was. Cant afford to suffer from another case of after the lord mayors show, which we’ve been guilty of on many a occasion.

Im going to say 2-1 Villa and our excellent January form continuing into February
