Predicted Aston Villa and Sunderland line-ups

Here are the possible teams for the game between Aston Villa and Sunderland this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 29th August 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 11/12, Draw 13/5, Sunderland 15/4

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood will be confident that his team can make the most of their home advantage against Sunderland this weekend.

Villa go into this game looking to react after defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace, but Sherwood won’t be too downbeat because his team have already played some good football this season.

Villa could move into the top half of the table if they secure a win and other results go their way, which would provide a boost in terms of energy and confidence.

Sunderland are on a downer at the moment near the bottom of the table with just one point.

There would have been a hope from the club’s fans that they could get off to a good start as they look to react after the disappointment of last season.

However, some of the football the club have played so far hasn’t been up to scratch and the Black Cats need to be at the top of their game if they want to take anything from this difficult fixture.
