Back to Burton
While most of the local and national press seemed to be queuing up at Birmingham airport to wave Jack Grealish off to Spurs preseason USA tour, with articles saying he would be gone by this weekend, the Villa midfielder, as MOMS expected lines up against Burton today.
Also in the Villa team against Burton is James Chester, who the Media Muppets have been trying to deliver to Stoke, despite the club saying no bids have been received.
Villa again play the best XI they have available, as Steve Bruce dispenses with the experimental to get Villa focused as a unit to kick-off the season with intent.
It’s hoped Burton will pose a tougher test than a lacklustre Walsall team, who rarely seemed interested in the recent Villa 4-1 win.
