Onward through the Cup: Arsenal v. Aston Villa, Sunday 29 January 2012, 11:00 a.m. EST

It's been a while since our last pub excursion.  Since viewing Villa's 3-1 FA Cup Triumph at Bristol Rovers, Villa drew Everton at home, 1-1, before travelling to the Molineux and prevailing 3-2 through a pair of peaches from loan signing Robbie Keane.  Villa continue the road show this Sunday, traveling to the Emirates to take on Arsenal in the FA Cup Fourth Round.  

Villa will likely be without Emile Heksey, Carlos Cuellar, and possibly Stephen Ireland, with the trio suffering from Achilles, hamstring and hamstring injuries, respectively.  Reserve striker Nathan Delfouneso has joined Leicester on a 28-day loan, while midfielder Fabian Delph has returned to Leeds for the same amount of time.  Arsenal will likely be without any of their first-team left backs.

Capital Villans will be taking in the match at the Queen Vic, on 12th and H St NE.  We'll see you there starting at 11 EST!
