CONFIRMED: Swansea City & Aston Villa line-ups

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Here is how Swansea City and Aston Villa will line up for this afternoon's Premier League match at the Liberty Stadium...

Swansea City starting XI: Vorm, Rangel, Amat, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, de Guzman, Hernandez, Routledge, Bony.

Subs: Tremmel, Bartley, Taylor, Fulton, Emnes, Dyer, Vazquez.

Aston Villa starting XI: Guzan, Bacuna, Vlaar, Baker, Bertrand, Albrighton, Westwood, Delph, El Ahmadi, Agbonlahor, Weimann.

Subs: Steer, Sylla, Tonev, Lowton, Clark, Holt, Robinson.

Swansea and Aston Villa both appear to be safe from relegation at the moment, but one more win could seal their survival as they face off in South Wales today.

Garry Monk's Swans will be looking to build on a crucial 2-1 win at Newcastle last week, as top scorer Wilfried Bony bagged a vital brace - including the injury time penalty to win the game.

But with just one clean sheet and five defeats in their last ten games, there is still a level of concern at the club, making today's visit of Villa even more important.

Paul Lambert's side are without a win in six and evidently struggling to hit the back of the net since the injury to Christian Benteke. Their last away win came on New Year's Day when they won at Sunderland, and their recent form has dragged them back into the relegation scrap.

With seven of Villa's last 10 games ending in a 0-0 draw and three of the five meetings between the two sides also ending level, a draw today may be a good bet.
