CONFIRMED: Aston Villa v Hull City line-ups: Manchester United-linked star and ex-Liverpool defender start!

Here is how Aston Villa and Hull City will line up for their Premier League clash, featuring Manchester United-linked Ron Vlaar and Aly Cissokho, who played on loan for Liverpool last season.

Aston Villa will be looking to return to winning ways today when they take on Hull City at Villa Park in the Premier League.

The Villans kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 away win against Stoke City, but dropped two points against Newcastle United at home in their next game.

That goalless draw with the Magpies last weekend was followed by a disappointing 1-0 defeat to League One outfit Leyton Orient in the second round of the League Cup on Wednesday,

Villa do not boast a strong home form at all, having won just 15 of their 58 Premier League games at Villa Park, and could well slip up against a Hull side still reeling from their Europa League exit.

The Tigers won the second leg of their playoff tie against KSC Lokeren 2-1 at the KC Stadium on Thursday, but were knocked out on away goals rule.

Hull, though, have made a positive start to their 2014-15 Premier League campaign, having won their opening game 1-0 against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road and drawing 1-1 with Stoke City at home last weekend.

Today’s match at Villa Park promises to be an exciting affair, and here is how the two teams will line up.
