The striker is full of admiration for the displays so far this campaign of a Villa side seemingly galvanised by the managerial appointment of Martin O'Neill. They have remained unbeaten in a run that has included trips to both Arsenal and Chelsea.
"They have a very good young team and the manager Martin O'Neill has done well for them," considered Mido. "You can tell from interviews with some of their players that they really like and respond to him, which is always a good thing for the spirit of the team.
"It will be a tough job for us there, but we know what we need from the game - we need to win and come back with the three points.
"We have just had two wins and we need to continue in the same way," added the Egyptian international, who says we need to back up the recent home double with a first away-day return.
"It is a question of winning a really tough game. Once we do that against a team like Villa away, it will be the turning point of our season.
"Slavia Prague and Portsmouth were good games to win, but winning a tough away game can really make a difference to the course of your season."
Mido reasons that victory over unbeaten Aston Villa would represent a big turning point in our season.
