Predicted Aston Villa and Swansea line-ups

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

To be played on Saturday 24th October 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 2/1, Draw 11/5, Swansea 7/5

Aston Villa welcome Swansea City to Villa Park on Saturday with Tim Sherwood’s side in desperate need of the three points.

Villa have slipped to 19th in the Premier League having collected just four points from a possible 27 to date, and the pressure will only increase on their manager if they do not get something against Garry Monk’s side.

That said, Swansea are in need of a win of their own having not tasted victory since they overcame Manchester United 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in late August.

In early team news, Villa are without Ciaran Clark, Jores Okore, Gary Gardner and Gabby Agbonlahor who are all out injured.

As for Swansea, they have a clean bill of health which is a rarity in football these days, so they will have no excuses not to get a result against Villa.

This one could go either way, with both sets of players fully aware of just how important a victory will be for their confidence and, in Villa’s case, the future of their manager.
