Player to Watch: Douglas Luiz

Aston Villa's Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz has been instrumental in the club's good form this season.

Luiz has shined for Unay Emerey's side, especially at home, chipping in with five Premier League goals so far.

If Aston Villa are to make it back-to-back wins in the space of a few days against possibly the best two teams in the Premier League over the last few seasons, Luiz is going to have to be at his best, with another commanding midfield display.
