The West Midlands derby will see Aston Villa travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom with both teams in need of three points. Aston Villa have strung together a four game unbeaten run which has seen them close the gap on some of the teams above them and they are now just ten points from safety. Four weeks ago Aston Villa looked absolutely dead and buried but now there is a little hope within the club and the fans can see the improvement in effor tfrom the players. This is still a huge ask but Villa with a win here tomorrow could give themselves a fighting chance. Rudy Gestede and Andre Ayew are going to be the key men for Garde's side but the question really is can they score enough to give Villa a chance?
West brom come into this game with just one loss in their last six, West brom have also won at home to Arsenal and recently picked up a point at Chelsea. West Brom manaer Tony Pulis will look to record signing Rondon to get the goals that can decidet thiis derby game. There is guaranteed to be an atmosphere here and I think there are players like James McLean who could find themselves walking a tight rope. West Brom are definitely a quality side here and they have the better team on paper and in recent form.
Tough one to call and these Derby games can go anyway Aston Villa simply need to start winning games and while I am not going to take them straight up here I think that Aston Villa can definitely get somethigf from this one. The draw looks the play here between two well matched teams.
