Brentford vs Aston Villa

Aston Villa are set to face off with Brentford this coming Sunday.

When doing so, the Villa boss confirmed that both Leon Bailley and Marvelous Nakamba are out of the tie, whilst Ashley Young has an outside chance of featuring:

“Leon Bailey will still be missing, and Marvelous Nakamba. Ashley Young has got an outside chance, he has a little fracture in his toe, but he is pushing to be available. Other than that, we should have the whole group available, dependent on Covid testing.”

Elsewhere, Gerrard was quizzed on Aston Villa’s January transfer window:

“We’ll only make signings if we feel they are the right signings for the team and the club. “We have identified certain individuals we would like to bring in and we are actively looking to improve.”
