Predicted Aston Villa and West Brom line-ups

Here is how we predict Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Saturday 19th September 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 13/10, Draw 21/10, West Brom 23/10

Aston Villa take on local rivals West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in a huge match that neither side will want to lose.

The two clubs are currently separated by just one place and one point in the Premier League, but victory for either this weekend will be a huge boost after hit-and-miss starts the new campaign.

Villa saw a two-goal lead slip in just 17 minutes against Leicester City on Sunday, with Tim Sherwood’s side ultimately defeated 3-2.

In contrast West Brom drew 0-0 with Southampton after defeating Stoke City 1-0 prior to the international break.

In early team news, Villa are without the injured Jores Okore while summer signing Jose Angel Crespo is not yet ready to return.

Gary Gardner is also out with an ankle injury while Sherwood has doubts regarding Adama Traore and Idrissa Gueye.

West Brom are without injured goalkeeper Ben Foster while recent arrival Jonny Evans has a 75 per cent chance of recovering from a knock suffered on his debut.
