Aston Villa vs Southampton PredictionAston Villa vs Southampton Prediction and Preview for Saturday's EPL fixture. Two teams battling it out for survival. The English Premier League just started getting interesting as Aston Villa welcome Southampton at Villa Park with both sides seeking redemption. Who will come out on top in this bottom sided contest?
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 18
Kick-off:
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham)

Aston Villa’s only win in 4 games (W1 L3) was against a weakened Liverpool side in the EFL cup. In that match, Liverpool fringe players were given starting berths and a chance to experience the big stage in a game where the Reds were not really after a win. Klopp’s side has bigger ambitions in the league and in Europe. Aston Villa trounced Liverpool’s academy products 5-0 but here, against a Southampton side on the hunt for points, it might not live up to such margins.

At home, the Villans have been average where in 8 matches (W3 D2 L3), they have scored 11 and conceded 11. Not very convincing. No wonder Dean Smith’s boys lie 17th on the log, tied on relegation zone with Southampton. Villa Park has surely seen better days.

The Saints have also seen better days behind them. 17 games in the season (W4 D3 L10) have seen them score 18 and concede 36. Not good, not even close. For a club that finished just outside a Europa spot in 2016/2017, this is a pale shadow of their former self. Two consecutive losses have seen the side slip into 18th place with a slot in the dreaded cut-off zone.

So terrible the Saints have been this season that they bear the leakiest defence in the league, even worse than bottom placed Watford. Work is cut out for them in Villa Park where it is never easy for average teams like Southampton to come out with point. But then, even Villa are average. A battle of averages await.


Injured or Suspended Players:

Aston Villa: Jed Steer, Tyrone Mings.

Southampton: Yan Valery.
