CONFIRMED: Swansea v Aston Villa line-ups

The teams have been confirmed as Aston Villa travel to Swansea's Liberty Stadium.

Swansea: Fabianski, Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Ki, Shelvey, Sigurdsson, Dyer, Montero, Bony

Subs: Tremmel, Richards, Bartley, Carroll, Emnes, Routledge, Gomis

Aston Villa: Guzan, Hutton, Vlaar, Okore, Clark, Cissokho, Delph, Cleverley, Sanchez, Agbonlahor, Benteke

Subs: Given, Bacuna, Weimann, Herd, N'Zogbia, Lowton, Grealish

Aston Villa visit the Liberty Stadium looking to avenge their 4-1 thrashing there last April and will hope that Christian Benteke can continue his impressive run since returning from injury. Villa received a big boost when Gabriel Agbonlahor's red card against Manchester United was rescinded and will look for three points to close the five-point gap to the Swans in the table.

The Swans have their own goal-scoring hero in Wilfried Bony, who is the Premier League's top scorer in 2014 with 20 goals but he had to settle for a place on the bench against Hull. Swansea will have to do without Bony for a long time while the African Cup of Nations takes place in January, so he will look to make a difference while he can.
