Well, Villa don't have any injury concerns other than Agbonlahor, who will face a late fitness test. Portsmouth on the other hand have Diarra and Kranjcar out for this match, both really important players for them. Diarra has impressed much this season and I wonder why he has been sold by Chelsea and Arsenal. While it means that Utaka may get a run out on the right due to Bouba Diop moving into the middle, I think that Shorey is great defensively and can handle Utaka's pace. Villa have a great attack and their speed will definitely exploit Campbell's and Distin's lack of pace, which saw them leak 6 goals to Man Shitty. Take Villa on this one.
Roland's prediction: $5 on Aston Villa @ 1.800 = $9.00
