Steve Bruce has remained in the Villa hot seat following rumours during the summer, and he has a definite job on his hands to galvanize a Villa outfit who took a gamble last season on winning promotion, a ploy which ultimately backfired.
Big signing John Terry has left the club, while Robert Snodgrass’s loan spell has ended – this squad looks a little weaker this time round, so there’s definitely plenty of work to do.
Nigel Adkin’s Hull side themselves had bad memories last season, with the club fighting off the threat of relegation and finishing with a decent run, but the loss of Michael Dawson to Nottingham Forest is a big blow
Hull v Aston Villa Prediction.
Villa should fancy their chances in this one, striker Jonathan Kodjia has looked lively in pre season, bagging three in four friendlies and the 7/5 on offer for the away win looks a pretty decent price.
