FA Cup can be perfect tonic for Villa
Aston Villa v Ipswich
PAUL LAMBERT is under huge pressure at the moment but I reckon he’ll be welcoming an FA Cup tie right now.
There are many people who reckon Aston Villa are set for an embarrassing fall at home to Ipswich but my money is on the Premier League outfit at a decent price.
Clearly Villa are in poor form though the 2-2 draw against Swansea did at least end a sequence of horror defeats. But the pressure’s off and it isn’t as though they are up against a side setting the Championship alight.
Ipswich are themselves in a relegation scrap and Mick McCarthy has said he’ll make changes. I also like Leeds at home to injury-hit Birmingham but Villa are my main bet on Saturday.
