Predicted team for Aston Villa in the FA Cup

Share this article:

After the latest squad report revealed that Cucurella, Gusto, James, Fofana, Lavia, Sanchez, Ugochukwu, Jackson and Nkunku will be missing from tomorrow’s FA Cup clash. Predicting Pochettino’s team has become a bit of a challenge.

With first and second choice right back options out, Pochettino may well turn his attention back to Disasi who has experience of playing as a right-back. Similar may apply at left back as Pochettino confirmed earlier today that Ben Chilwell would be a doubt to start the match.

With Cucurella out and Chilwell unlikely to play the majority of the game, attention turns back to Levi Colwill. As for the right back position, if Pochettino wanted to get creative he could turn his attention to either Caicedo or Alfie Gilchrist.

The centre back pairing is more than likely to be Thiago Silva playing alongside Badiashile as the other two options will be at full back. The midfield pairing will likely be Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo once again.

Gallagher is bound to be just in front of those two with Pochettino likely shuffling the pack given Mudryk’s poor performance which saw him substituted on Tuesday evening.

Palmer ended the game on Tuesday up front which could be an early hint, especially as Broja got subbed off without a goal once again.

The team I predict it will be; Petrovic, Disasi, Silva, Badiashile, Colwill, Enzo, Caicedo, Gallagher, Madueke, Palmer, Sterling.
