Aston Villa

4-1-4-1: This is the best XI Aston Villa can field against Birmingham on Sunday – Agreed?



Aston Villa are the form side in the country right now, with Steve Bruce’s side looking a good bet to push on and secure a Premier League return later this season.

Bruce’s side have picked up six consecutive victories in the Sky Bet Championship, which has elevated them to third in the table, just a single point outside the top-two.

This weekend, Villa aren’t in action until Sunday, when they welcome Birmingham City to Villa Park for the Second City derby.

Like Villa, Birmingham are in good form heading into the fixture, having won four of their last six fixtures, to move them slightly away from relegation trouble.

As always, form goes out of the window ahead of a local derby, but Bruce will want to keep some consistency within his line-up, which has been key to Villa’s success recently.

Here at FLW, we take a look at the best XI Bruce could select to take on Birmingham, with it likely he will stick to his 4-1-4-1 formation…
