Aston Villa vs. Sunderland

Villa Park

26th September 2008

Aston Villa V Sunderland

Sunderland travel to Villa Park for their away game with Aston Villa.

Martin O`Neil`s side have started well in the Premiership this season and will be looking to take full advantage of playing on their own patch.

Keane will be looking for his team to improve, as they were poor against Northampton in the Carling Cup.

Keane side only just scraped into the forth round after beating a good Cobblers side on penalties.

Aston Villa Team News:

Villa are still without Wilfred Bouma and Steve Sidwell who is suffering from a knee injury.

Player to watch: Ashley Young

He`s a class act who can be a constant threat when going forward

Sunderland Team News:

Sunderland are without Kenweyne Jones, Nyron Nosworty, Darren Ward, Martyn Waghorn, Grant Leadbitter and Phil Bardsley.

George McCartney is expected to return as is Danny Collins who will be filling in for Nosworty.

Teemu Tainio is also looking to return after overcoming his shoulder injury.

Player to watch: Michael Chopra

Chops is on fire so he will be looking to capitalise on a possible starting roll.

Match Facts & Stats

Last time in this fixture we won 1-0 thanks to a Michael Chopra goal.

Richarson was the supplier of a great long ball which Chops raced onto and slotted home

In our last seven league games away to Villa we have Won 1, Draw 3 and Lost 3

Ref Watch:

Peter Walton

Match Prediction:

It will be tight game against a Villa side who have started the season well. I think it will be a 1-1 draw.

Next Fixtures:

Sunderland v Arsenal
Kick off 15:00
