Aston Villa and Southampton square off in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Aston Villa are coming off a 2-0 win at Burnley behind goals from Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins. The Villans snapped a two-game skid and they remain in 13th spot in the table with 30 points from 25 matches.

Marvelous Nakamba is the lone injured player for Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard.

Southampton will try to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League after posting 2-0 wins over Everton and Norwich City. Ché Adams and Oriol Romeu were the scorers in their last match to help the Saints extend their unbeaten streak in all competitions to five matches. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s boys have lost only once in their last 10 matches and they are currently ranked ninth in the league with 35 points from 26 matches.

Southampton are coming off a 3-1 victory over West Ham United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday. Romain Perraud, James Ward-Prowse and Armando Broja were all on target to send the Saints to the quarter-finals. Southampton have won three in a row across all competitions and have not lost in their last seven games.

Alex McCarthy, Nathan Tella and Lyanco will not feature for the Saints in this game due to injuries.

Southampton beat Aston Villa 1-0 back in November in the first meeting between the two teams this season. Adam Armstrong’s third-minute goal was enough for the Saints to secure a home win.
