Aston Villa vs. QPR
Aston Villa XI: Shay Given; Alan Hutton, Richard Dunne, Carlos Cuellar, Stephen Warnock; Ciaran Clark, Stephen Ireland, Stiliyan Petrov, Chares N’Zogbia; Darren Bent, Robbie Keane
Aston Villa Subs: Brad Guzan, Barry Bannan, Andreas Weimann, Nathan Baker, Gary Gardner, Emile Heskey, Eric Lichaj (!!!)
QPR XI: Paddy Kenny; Luke Young, Anton Ferdinand, Nedum Onuoha, Taye Taiwo; Shaun Derry, Joey Barton, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jamie Mackie; Djibril Cisse, Rob Hulse
QPR Subs: Radek Cerny, Clint Hill, Fitz Hall, Tommy Smith, Hogan Ephraim, Federico Macheda, Angelo Balanta
Good news: Charles N'Zogbia returns to the lineup! Bad news: It's because Gabby Agbonlahor is injured. Good news: Eric Lichaj makes the Villa 18! Bad news: Djibril Cisse makes the QPR starting lineup. Luckily, Bobby Zamora does not. Still, QPR is a lot better than the last time we played them, and we just barely got a point from that game. And we were lucky we did! I am still optimistic though, largely because I am an idiot.
