Aston Villa vs Luton – Pre-game Assessment

Sunday, Oct.29, 15:00 pm – Villa Park

Last Sunday, we had to prepare for a team (West Ham) who had been our nemesis in recent years and who were just behind us in the standings, so taking them seriously was not a problem.  Consequently, our Villans were prepared, and the result showed what we could do when properly focused.

This Sunday, we have a different challenge, Luton Town, a surprising upstart from the lower divisions who find themselves playing against teams with far more resources and more talented players overall.  Despite that, they are showing themselves to be no pushover.

After losing their first three games they have won one and tied two of their last five.  That includes taking all three points from Everton at Goodison Park and coming back at Notts Forest in the last ten minutes to salvage a 2-2 tie.

This is one of those games that our Villans of the past have got caught napping.  It is hard to imagine that this will happen under Emery’s watch, but it will likely be his biggest concern.  Sitting in 5th place in the Premier League should be enough motivation to stay laser focused and grab the easy points while we can.

Result Prediction:

I think our Villans will continue their home winning streak.  Prediction:  Aston Villa 3, Luton 0.

Predicted Villa Line-Up:

Aston Villa: Martínez, Cash, Konsa, Torres, Digne, Luiz, McGinn, Kamara, Bailey, Diaby, Watkins

Subs: Olsen, Traore, Duran, Dendoncker, Chambers, Zaniolo
