I mean, he conceded the penalty vs Man Utd... I respect him as much as anyone, but I wouldn't be confident with him in the team anymore

It hardly takes a special skill to concede a penalty against Man U!

Has Benkovic been training or have the club given up on him? Amartey still injured? 

 

Desparate times but needs must going into a game having had last seasons superb back 4 wiped out. 

 

Just don't play Fuchs as a centre back.

Benkovic was rumored to be leaving on loan to Middlesborough or Derby but if injuries to Evans and Cags are there I reckon we will keep him and he will feature in the squad for these next coming games.

Evans will be ok I reckon, fingers crossed it's precaution. 

 

Soyuncu though missing 3 games is worrying, although it clearly wasn't enough to send him home so couldn't have been too far away from playing. 

 

Amartey injured too isn't he? Noone really covered that since the West ham game. 

 

Back 3 of Fofana, Morgan and Fuchs I reckon. If the rest are injured

Have we got any players that aren't injured?

Barnes, Justin, Iheanacho and Tielemans are the only players without any injury question marks haha.

 

Vardy has had niggles

Castagne popped his shoulder out

Evans numerous niggles

Fofana had knee problems at St Etienne in the summer

Soyuncu hamstring

Ricardo ACL

Amartey hamstring

Maddison god knows

Praet twisted knee

Perez had a problem during pre-season

Ndidi out for 3 months

Mendy goes about 3-4 months max before injuries here

Crikey, that's grim reading.

 

WTF is going on with our injuries at the moment? (cue gag about Dave Rennie)

 

There was a time not that long ago you could send the opposition out with razor blades for studs and the worst our players would get were nicely shaven legs. They were unstoppable.

That is quite shocking. How do we have a squad with only 4 fully fit players?

Jesus christ, I hope not. 

 

Villa will massacre us if that is our backline.

If I recall correctly, Benkovic is not on the 25-player PL squad list - unless he doesn’t need to be registered (he’s 23 though).

Apart from Ricardo and Ndidi, niggling injuries then...

Most players get these during the course of the season. No biggie.

 

Nonetheless, I suspect that Evans will likely be more injury-prone this season.

Tielemans - pregnant 

Thought he was looking rotund again after his performance against West Ham. That’ll explain it. I’m expecting him to be back at fighting weight for Villa though.

I love the lad but he runs as though he has something cooking in his belly.

Hopefully that lot are injury free. 

Or this

 

                          Schmeichel 

                   

                     Fofana        Evans

Castagne                                            Justin

                               Mendy 

       

            Choudhury               Tielemans

                       

                             Maddison 

       

            Iheanacho                  Vardy

 

I'd prefer the 433 but I've got a feeling Brendan might go with a diamond with Choudhury doubling up on Grealish with Castagne. We did them away using this formation last year.

Yep, could just as easily go with that and wouldn’t be adverse to it either.

If Evans is fit enough that would be my preference as it’s both the 433 but actually the 4141 the way we play it.
