    Villa vs Tottenham

    Massive match and with Tottenham having loads of injuries we could jump into the top 4. Liverpool or Man city will drop points this week. Im not holding my breath though as the last time I was looking at the table like this we lost against Forest. Ramsey is back in training so this will give us a huge boost and imo is better than Zaniolo and more clinical. I expect Ramsey to come off the bench late on.
    We're crap away from home recently but hears hoping it will change. Next 4 games are enormous.

    Big game for sure with the next few fixtures in Dec, we are not crap away, the defeats to Toon & L’pool came early on when we were adapting to injuries and since then a draw at Wolves is a decent result plus Forest have lost twice at home in 20 games. Most teams find it hard to win against a well organised low block and getting the first goal is hugely important.

    Spurs at home will be expected to attack us and that will suit Villa, Ramsey has been a big miss but coming back just in time for these big games where he tends to shine.

    Let’s not forget that without him, Mings and Moreno that’s all of last season’s left side not playing.

    We need spurs to have an off day, with our away form even with injuries and suspensions affecting spurs, I think they will be too strong for us, at best a draw. We have some massive games coming up and this is one of them, spurs, Arsenal City. If we can get 4 points off them I would be delighted!

    Konsa RB and Cash RM, gulp.

    In Unai, I sort of trust.

    Away win, 1-2 to the good guys.

    Well your prediction was spot on Exiled and I thought the same about the formation. Its the same team as when we played wolves away and looked awful. I don't understand why we don't just play the same,e way as we do at home. Yes we need a right back and you can see the difference in quality with udogie today. Someone like that we need. Ramsey starting will also improve us.

    Yes zip, I think we are all in shock, bigger tests to come but I tell you what, if the prem league FFP ever pull their finger out and doc points off City, there will be 6 other clubs rubbing their hands...

    I was lucky enough to have a ticket in hospitality on Sunday. Despite being surrounded by Spurs supporters and unable to celebrate our goals I had a great view of the match sitting above the middle of the pitch. Really interesting to see the tactics of both teams from there with both managers going for the high press. Crazy to see 20 men squashed up the halfway line with both keepers stranded in acres of space. Clearly Unai got the first half wrong with the formation and we were fortunate to go in all square but I thought the second half was ours. A great win. Our away support were immense. Not sure we can ride these off side tactics all season though. Teams are going to work it out. UTV.
