Aston Villa injury woes continue...oh, whoops, sorry. That starting sentence was so common in the fall that the words just tumbled on to the page. Anyway, Jean Makoun picked up a thigh injury in the match against Wigan on Tuesday, so he's a doubt for the FA Cup match against Blackburn Rovers. But unlike the fall, this time we get a healthy player in exchange for a semi-broken one: Kyle Walker has overcome his back problem and will play on Saturday.

And so the Villa have filled in one piece of the puzzle: who will start at right back. But we're still in the dark about the other nine starting spots (I assume Brad Friedel starts as Andy Marshall? Really? No). Luke Young and Stephen Ireland are also unavailable. If you haven't yet put in your two cents, go and add your predictions for who you'd like to see start against Blackburn.
