Talking Tactics: Are Aston Villa's woes purely down to missing key players? is a post from: Just Football

by Sam Thompson

It was clear during Aston Villa's heavy defeat to Manchester United last weekend that the Midlands club are a side missing key players. Looking at Aston Villa's strongest XI on paper, it is obvious that the three players in the spine of the side who have been unavailable are sorely missed.

I don't really want to see Suarez as a lone striker again, but I also don't expect Carroll to start after Sunday's display.

Aston Villa 2-4 Chelsea: A frolic, then a fright

From 2-0 up and sleepwalking toward three points to 2-2 and then, amazingly, 4-2 this was not the way any of us expected this match to play out. And if you did, you're a weird soul. Nevertheless, it's a crucial win as we inch closer to the top four.


Relief.

I'm not sure that we've played a more bizarre game this season.

It was our seventh Premier League win in a row and that gives us a three-point advantage over the Spuds, who could only draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier in the day.

Marc Albrighton and Stiliyan Petrov produced the vital goals to deliver Villa's first away win of the season, but Ivan Klasnic was able to prevent Brad Guzan earning a clean sheet on his first Premiership start.

It was a much improved performance during the first half, and fans crying out for a 4-4-2 system will be quick to point out that was the case today with Marc Albrighton on the right and Charles N'Zogbia on the left.

One of the bigger talking points has been the return of Ashley Young. James Milner showed class by not celebrating at Eastlands recently, expect Ashley Young to do exactly the same today, but preferably because he hasn't scored.

Either way, it's a tough game ahead and I suspect there will be a bigger interest in the manner we McLeish approaches the game than any real expectation in getting much from it.
