Aston Villa will entertain Fulham at Villa Park this Tuesday night as they try to secure all three points in front of their home fans. The Villans managed to secure a 1-1 draw away at Brentford recently, so they would be eager to get back to winning ways in the Premier League in midweek.

Unai Emery will opt for a 4-4-2 formation and could be inclined to make one change to his first XI for this game. Lucas Digne will get a chance to impress from the start while Alex Moreno drops to the bench.

4-4-2 Aston Villa Predicted Lineup To Face Fulham


Emiliano Martinez will function in goal for the Villans after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. However, the Argentine custodian is a doubt for this game as he is suffering from a sickness bug.

Ezri Konsa will operate alongside Tyrone Mings at the heart of Aston Villa’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.

Ashley Young could get another chance to impress as the right-back while Lucas Digne fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them would be given the license to express themselves in the opponent’s half.

Alex Moreno will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the left-back position.

Douglas Luiz will anchor the midfield along with Leander Dendoncker as they try to establish their dominance over the opposition at the centre of the park. Luiz managed to get his name on the scoresheet versus Brentford which will give him a lot of confidence ahead of this game.

Jacob Ramsey will feature as the left-sided wide player while John McGinn hopes to give a good account of himself on the right flank. Both of them would have to stretch the opposition backline if Aston Villa want to create enough chances to win this contest at Villa Park.


Emiliano Buendia and Ollie Watkins will lead the charge for the West Midlands club in the final third. Both of them need to figure out a way to link up with each other effectively so that they can cause some problems for the Fulham centre-backs.
