Player to Watch:
James Milner - He has been sensational for the Villan this season. He works non-stop and he oozes quality whilst getting about his business very quietly. With the injury to Gareth Barry I expect to see a midfield of de Jong and Vieira which is painfully slow; this could offer Milner with a lot of time on the ball to pick a pass or make a burst forward. de Jong needs to get right into him.
