Name: Rudy Gestede
Fixtures: Newcastle (A), West Ham (H), Norwich (A)
With just six points from their 16 Premier League matches and lying eight points from safety, Aston Villa are in desperate need of picking up some points over the Christmas period.
Despite their struggles, they have the perfect opportunity to do so as they face two of their fellow strugglers, Newcastle and Norwich, as well as a home match against an injury-hit West Ham.
However, the division’s joint lowest goalscorers will need their strikers to fire, and Rudy Gestede, who has three this season, could be Villa’s key man if he can manage to get himself on the scoresheet.
