- Unai Emery’s Aston Villa will be eyeing up a tilt at UEFA Europa Conference League qualification. The hosts come into this on the back of a 1-1 draw away at West Ham United, keeping them just inside the bottom-half of the Premier League table.
- Recent form may dictate that Emery keeps faith with the same XI that started against West Ham.
- AFC Bournemouth pulled off a shock 1-0 win at home to Liverpool last weekend and, although The Cherries remain inside the bottom three and the relegation places, they are well in the battle for potential survival.
- The injury situation has eased somewhat lately with David Brooks notably made a first squad appearance since October 2021 last time out.
THE TEAM NEWS
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Moreno; McGinn, Douglas Luiz; Bailey, Buendia, Ramsey; Watkins
UNAVAILABLE: Steer (Injured), Dendoncker (Injured), Kamara (Injured), Coutinho (Injured)
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Neto; Smith, Stephens, Senesi, Kelly; Rothwell, Lerma; Billing; Outtara, Billing, Anthony; Solanke

QUESTIONABLE: Traore (Injured)
Aston Villa come into this on the back of the aforementioned 1-1 draw with West Ham United at the London Stadium, meaning The Villains begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting seven points off the top seven and the potential European qualification spots. They now face an AFC Bournemouth side that, under the management of Gary O’Neil, have some really impressive threats, particularly on the counter-attack, most notably with Burkina Faso international Dango Ouattara. Villa remain favourites, especially with their home advantage, but both teams scoring would appear a good bet for this one.
TIP: ASTON VILLA TO WIN & BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
