Aston Villa v Southampton team news

Aston Villa: Goalkeeper Tom Heaton could be fit again to feature in his first game since New Year’s Day, but boss Dean Smith may decide to keep Emiliano Martinez between the sticks.

Wesley is out until 2021, while Kortney Hause has a groin strain that means he is unlikely to even make the bench here.

Southampton: Loanee Theo Walcott is available once again after being unable to play against parent club Everton last weekend.

Mohamed Salisu is unlikely to pass a fitness test but might make the bench, while Moussa Djenepo has a thigh injury.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Southampton

Despite Villa’s 3-0 thumping to Leeds last time out, Sunday’s hosts are more than capable of responding here.

Villa have been emphatic going forward this season – buoyed of course by the 7-2 triumph over Liverpool. And they will look to take the game to Southampton, who themselves aren’t scared of bombing forward in search of a goal.

The game could come down to how James Ward-Prowse and Oriol Romeu marshal the midfield, with Grealish likely to carry Villa’s attacks into the final third. A high-scoring draw would not be a shock here.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 2-2 Southampton
