Goalkeeper and defence
Sam Johnstone (Goalkeeper) – He is continuing to impress for Villa and has become a reliable option in net.
Ahmed Elmohamady (Right-back) – He could enjoy a strong game against Burton if he pushes forward down the right flank and the defensive side of his game should be able to cope against Burton.
James Chester (Centre-back) – The defender should retain his spot after some big blocks against Forest, always wears his heart on his sleeve.
John Terry (Centre-back) – The veteran defender is an ever-present in Bruce’s side and his experience his beginning to have a polite impact on the team.
Neil Taylor (Left-back) – He is a consistent member of the back four and can be relied upon by Bruce to turn in a decent performance each week.
