Southampton vs Aston Villa Prediction & Match Preview

Southampton vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.

Southampton and Aston Villa go head to head at St. Mary’s Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. 

The Saints experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Arsenal, with the team dropping to 11th place in the standings. 

Danny Ings has overcome his injury, while Walker-Peters, Romeu, Vestergaard, Smallbone, Salisu, Obafemi, and Djenepo remain on the sidelines through injuries.

The Villans, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Burnley. 

Dean Smith’s troops aim to move a little closer to the Europa League berth, and given the number of absentees in the home team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jack Grealish and Co. 

Ollie Watkins, who found the net in the midweek defeat, is likely to lead the line for the visitors.

Team News:

Southampton remain without a number of first-team players through injury, but Kyle Walker-Peters may be available and Ryan Bertrand is back from suspension.

Nathan Redmond was a second-half substitute against Arsenal and is in contention to make his first start since October.

James Ward-Prowse claimed another assist last time out to take the midfielder to nine goal involvements this term, making this his most productive Premier League campaign.

Villa brought in Morgan Sanson from Marseille for £16m this week and he is line to make his debut at St Mary's, though that will likely be from the bench.

Rotation is possible in attack should Smith wish to freshen things up, with Bertrand Traore, Anwar El-Ghazi and Trezeguet battling for a starting spot.

Ollie Watkins will surely lead the line as he looks to score in a third successive Premier League game for the first time.

McCarthy; Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Walcott; Adams, Ings

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Luiz, McGinn; Trezeguet, Barkley, Grealish; Watkins
