It feels to me like a game that could finish 2-1 either way. Chances at both ends, whichever team is better in both boxes wins.
Might not be the worst time to play Villa, on a positive note. They are very much still coming to terms with their own post-Grealish identity, having channelled all creative play through him for years. They have quality and they've bought quality, but they're still trying to develop patterns of play and balance.
