ON THIS DAY

Seemingly from nowhere Villa put in a performance AND get their reward with goals from Trรฉzรฉguet and a clean sheet from a hitherto leaky defence. Indeed Villa scored two goals in a league game for the first time since January and kept their first clean sheet in the league since the opening day of the restart on 17 June.

TEAM NEWS

Conor Hourihane returns to the line up at the expense of Anwar El Ghazi who drops to the bench.

โ€‹Matt Targett returns after injury but fails to make the starting line up as does Frรฉdรฉric Guilbert. Kortney Hause retains the right back position but is injured in the warm up and is replaced in the starting line up by Ahmed Elmohamady.

Goalkeeper Jed Steer is promoted to the bench after his return from injury.

Villa start the game with two goalkeepers amongst their nine substitutes as well as their two first choice full backs despite their stand-in full back dropping out of the starting line up due to injury.
