Aston Villa v Watford predicted lineups and match preview

Aston Villa take on Watford at Villa Park this afternoon.

To be played on Saturday 28th November 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 17/10, Draw 21/10, Watford 17/10

Aston Villa will be desperately searching for just their second win of the Premier League season as they take on Watford today.

Villa's only win came on the opening day against Bournemouth, and since then they have picked up just two points in a disastrous start to the campaign.

Tim Sherwood lost his job in October, and new boss Remi Garde must now attempt to pick up points quickly if Villa are to avoid relegation.

Today they take on a Watford side who have enjoyed a decent start since winning promotion last season, but Garde may make changes to his side.

Jack Grealish won't feature having been sent to train with the Under-21's, and whilst Kieran Richardson may keep his place at left back despite struggling at Everton last week, there could yet be a defensive reshuffle for Garde after Villa leaked four at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Watford need to pick themselves back up after a cruel 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last weekend.

Former Villa youngster Troy Deeney will lead the line alongside Odion Ighalo, with both players causing problems for Premier League defences this term.

Right back Allan Nyom should keep his place despite a poor run of form, whilst Jurado may miss out having struggled against United, with the suggestion that he may have been rushed back from injury.
