Predicted Aston Villa line-up to play Swansea: Two changes from Garde

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

To be played on Saturday 19th March 2016 at 17:30. Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea

Odds: Swansea 8/13, Draw 3/1, Aston Villa 9/2

Aston Villa travel to the Liberty Stadium this weekend to take on Swansea City in their latest Premier League encounter.

Villa are currently bottom of the table with just 16 points from 30 matches, and with a nine-point deficit to claw back to climb out of the bottom three they are surely doomed with just eight matches remaining.

Villa manager Remi Garde may have other ideas and will want his side to take three points from their trip to Wales, but Swansea will know a victory of their own will all but secure their top-flight status for another season.

In early team news, Swansea midfielder Andre Ayew is rated at 50/50 to be fit for this match while there are minor doubts regarding Jefferson Montero and Modou Barrow.

As for Villa, they must do without Jordan Amavi, Jack Grealish and Adama Traore while Libor Kozak is lacking match fitness.

Garde also has doubts relating to Carlos Sanchez and Gabby Agbonlahor but both are rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.
