Twitter account @AstonForza named who they want to play against Arsenal, with the surprise move of putting John McGinn on the wing.

This team got a mixed reaction from some Villa fans, with many asking why McGinn is out wide.
Twitter: @astonforza McGinn on the wing? https://t.co/kzXl4LaCqZ (@RHUTV170)
Twitter: @EliElGhazi Narrow so not fully out wide. Guilbert provides width on overlap ? (@astonforza)
Chris rreckons Conor Hourihane has to play.
Twitter: @astonforza Got a lot of time for this but for me @ConorHourihane has to be in it (@KeeperHodge)
Nick reckons Villa need to play a narrow 4-2-3-1.
Twitter: @astonforza 4231 narrow. Gets our best players higher up the pitch and in support of Wes (@nickstevens_39)
@fpl_29 doesn’t know how playing that formation would play out for Villa.
Twitter: @astonforza I like the idea, not sure how it would play out tho. I reckon hourihane over Luiz could Bridge the gap… https://t.co/L4c9awZfqs (@fpl_29)
Read ASton Villa’s Verdict
It’s certainly an interesting decision to play McGinn out wide, but it may be to Villa’s benefit.
The Scot is already getting forward a lot, and putting him further forward may just be the thing Villa need to do to get some more goals.
However, I doubt Dean Smith will be making too many changes ahead of the clash.
