Aston Villa v West Brom predicted lineups: Given and Grealish start

Villa Park

Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion meet in the FA Cup at Villa Park on Saturday.

To be played on Saturday 7th March 2015 at 17:30. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 13/8, Draw 7/4, West Brom 11/5

Just days after Aston Villa beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 in a dramatic Premier League clash, the two sides meet again on Saturday - this time in the FA Cup.

Christian Benteke's last-gasp penalty bagged all three points on Tuesday night, handing Tim Sherwood his first win as Villa boss; and in doing so, giving Villa hope of Premier League survival.

Yet now, that has to be put on the backburner, as a place in the FA Cup semi-finals is up for grabs at Villa Park this time around.

Villa beat Leicester City 2-1 in the last round, and will be looking to repeat the trick, with Sherwood expected to make a couple of changes.

Goalkeeper Shay Given impressed in that Leicester tie and could be handed a start, whilst Jack Grealish's impressive cameo against West Brom on Tuesday may lead to a start this time around.

For West Brom, they hammered West Ham 4-0 in the last round, and manager Tony Pulis may be forced to use the same line-up as Tuesday night with Callum McManaman and Stephane Sessegnon expected to miss out.

West Brom will be keen to seek revenge after the events of Tuesday night in what promises to be another tight affair.
