Predicted Southampton and Aston Villa line-ups

Here is how we predict Southampton and Aston Villa will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 16th May 2015 at 11:45. Venue: St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton

Odds: Southampton 4/5, Draw 13/5, Aston Villa 7/2

Southampton and Aston Villa go head-to-head at St Mary’s on Saturday with the visitors knowing they are not yet completely safe from relegation.

Tim Sherwood’s side are four points clear of Hull City with two games remaining, and while it is highly unlikely the Villans will be relegated given their recent form and the number of teams below them, victory here will secure their top-flight status for another year.

Southampton are currently seventh in the table, with Europa League qualification still possible.

In early team news, the Saints are without Dusan Tadic, Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez who is not yet match fit.

Villa will have to make do without defenders Ciaran Clark and Nathan Baker, while Libor Kozak is not yet ready to return.

This should make for an interesting encounter with both sides impressing under their current managers, both of whom may be looking ahead to even better campaigns to come.
