Aston Villa made club history on Monday when they beat Millwall 1-0 to make it 10 wins from their last 10 league matches.

To add to this, due to their play-off rivals dropping valuable points, Dean Smith’s men secured a play-off position with two games left to spare. This is some feat considering where they were ten games ago – in 14th place, 8 points adrift of the top 6.

Next up for Villa is an away trip to play Leeds and Smith is now left with a small dilemma – does he go for eleven wins on the bounce and risk injury or suspension to key players, or does he rest his key players and give the squad players a run out knowing that a play-off spot is assured? 

We think he will field his strongest team, but will swap things about early in the second-half.
