Aston Villa and Sunderland will face each other at Villa Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

Aston Villa defender Micah Richards has taken to social networking site Twitter to rally the fans ahead of today’s Premier League clash against Sunderland at home.

The Villans will be looking to pick up all three points when they host struggling Sunderland at Villa Park.

Tim Sherwood’s side will head into the match on the back of a 5-3 home win against Notts County in the second round of the League Cup.

Villa are 14th in the Premier League table at the moment, having picked up just three points from as many games.

Captain Richards, who joined the Villans on a free transfer earlier this summer, has taken to Twitter to send a message to the Villa fans, urging them to support him and his teammates against Sunderland today.

 Sunderland are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with just one point from their opening three matches.
