Robbie Savage gives Rudy Gestede verdict on Twitter, makes inspiring Villa prediction

The pundit has been discussing Aston Villa on social media ahead of the new Premier League season.

Robbie Savage's brand of controversial opinions - that are often then U-turned the very next week as soon as they are proven wrong - have taken to Twitter once again ahead of the new Premier League season.

Interestingly for Aston Villa fans, though, the pundit has been full of praise for the Midlands club.

Indeed, taking to social media for a Q + A with fans, Savage made several comments about Villa... all of which were positive.

First off, Savage (choosing to ignore a question about Fabian Delph) gave his verdict on Aston Villa's signing of striker Rudy Gestede.

The praise makes sense, as Gestede is brilliant in the air - perfect under the stewardship of Tim Sherwood.

More generally, meanwhile, when asked who could be Premier League underdogs this season, Savage tipped Aston Villa to be a surprise package that does well.

But he didn't even stop there. Indeed, the pundit also singled out Villa Park as having the best atmosphere he's ever experienced.

Are you excited about Aston Villa's season under Sherwood or are you worried now that Savage has cursed the Midlands club with his prediction!?
