Well folks, I was having a whole lot of trouble working up enthusiasm for Aston Villa's FA Cup clash with Millwall, but not the lineups are out and I just can't wait. Shay Given! Matt Lowton, Eric Lichaj and Joe Bennett, all in the team together! No Christian Benteke in the side at all! This is going to be great, guys. Real good feeling about this.
I'd also forgotten that Shane Lowry plays for Millwall now. He's not actually in the team at all so I don't know why it matters. I guess I'd forgotten Shane Lowry exists in general, to be honest. The saddest part is that Villa could probably use him right about now.
Millwall Starting XI:
Forde; Shittu, Beevers, Smith, Osborne; Trotter, Abdou, Henry, Feeney; Keogh, Marquis
Taylor, Dunne, Wright, Batt, J Smith, N'Guessan, Wilkinson
Aston Villa Starting XI:
Given; Lichaj, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Bennett; Westwood, Delph, N'Zogbia; Bent, Weimann
Aston Villa Substitutes:
Guzan, Ireland, Agbonlahor, Holman, Bowery, Bannan, Williams
