THE PREDICTION

In an eventful contest which saw both teams reduced to ten men, Aston Villa were narrowly beaten 1-2 by league leaders Man City at Villa Park in midweek. Dean Smith’s side will be desperate to bounce back quickly against local rivals West Brom. The Baggies arrive at Villa Park with just three days recovery time following their game away at Leicester and the hosts may be set to take advantage of having an extra day of rest. As always with a local encounter, pride is at stake in this fixture with it meaning a lot to both sets of supporters and a close match should be in prospect. However, the all-round strength in depth of Aston Villa compared to the visitors may prove the difference in a packed recent schedule and with home advantage also in their favour, Villa should manage to edge past West Brom.
