Aston Villa fans have called upon Dean Smith to start Frederic Guilbert and Matt Targett against Everton on Friday.
The pair, who have missed out on the first two games of the season to Neil Taylor and Ahmed Elmohamady, and with Dean Smith’s comments today, it does sound like this could be the same on Friday.

It certainly is a big decision to make from Dean Smith, especially after the fees paid for both of the full backs.
Matt Targett has a lot to prove for Villa, with his fee and the fact he wasn’t the first choice at Southampton.
Meanwhile, Guilbert has not really had a chance in a Villa shirt to prove his worth, but would have had to do a lot to force Elmohamady out the side after his great performance against Bournemouth.
However, from his comments, it sounds like Taylor and Elmo are to be given another start against Everton.
