THE TEAM NEWS

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Southampton fell behind to a wind-assisted goal and despite levelling against Burnley, they succumbed to defeat last weekend.
  • Nathan Redmond was ruled out before the contest last week and he will be missing for at least a month due to a muscle injury.
  • Sofiane Boufal was given a start in Redmond's absence but he picked up a knock and looks set to be absent for this game.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): McCarthy; Valery, Stephens, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Djenepo; Ings, Long

Unavailable: Redmond (Injured), Walker-Peters (Injured)

Doubtful: Boufal (Injured)

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa suffered late heartache in last week's game against Tottenham as they conceded an injury-time goal that cost them a point.
  • Villa have now suffered successive losses in the Premier League and will be eager to return to winning ways on this trip to Southampton.
  • Tyrone Mings came down with tonsillitis before last week's contest but he is expected to return in place of Bjorn Engels for this game.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Reina; Konsa, Mings, Hause; Guilbert, Drinkwater, Douglas Luiz, Targett; El Ghazi, Samatta, Grealish

Unavailable: Wesley (Injured), Heaton (Injured), Steer (Injured), McGinn (Injured), Davis (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Southampton are on a poor run of form with their rise up the table coming to a halt in recent matches. They face struggling Aston Villa who will feel their performances are not being rewarded with points but they will continue to ask questions in a game that is likely to be a high-scoring affair.
