Teddy Sheringham would love nothing more than to score past his former treble-winning team-mate Peter Schmeichel on Saturday.<P class=MsoNormal>The pair spent two seasons together at United including the famous treble in 1999.<P class=MsoNormal>Schmeichel left for Sporting Lisbon for 1999-2000 before returning to the Premiership and Villa this summer while Teddy came back to the Lane.<P class=MsoNormal>Now, barring injury, they meet in the season&rsquo&#59;s opener on Saturday.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It would be nice to stick one past Peter,&rdquo&#59; said Teddy. &ldquo&#59;He&rsquo&#59;s a great goalkeeper and it would be nice to score, whoever is in goal.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;m surprised to see him back but it&rsquo&#59;s great to see him back because he&rsquo&#59;s a character and a great goalkeeper. He&rsquo&#59;ll bring a bit of fun to the Premier League.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Teddy, who confirmed he was &lsquo&#59;hopeful&rsquo&#59; of being fit after Achilles trouble, suggested Villa would be more than ready for the opener having played Inter Toto Cup games already this summer.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;They&rsquo&#59;ll be raring to go and in full flight already, which is not our best scenario,&rdquo&#59; said our new skipper. &ldquo&#59;But it&rsquo&#59;s a good start for us, everyone has had a good pre-season and we&rsquo&#59;ll be ready for it.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
